Lee Walker

Lee’s initial aspirations for when he started working with expand: When I joined expand I'd just had my first child. So, I wanted to ensure my wife didn't have to work and could be at home with the baby. My goal was to build a team and move into a leadership position, I am now leading a fantastic team of 7. In 5 years, I have been promoted 3 times and am now an equity holding director.
