As a creative marketer, he has design leadership experience in both agency and corporate environments. He has elevated four different multi billion dollar brands in a client facing role (Whirlpool, Amway, Steelcase, and Gentex).

I can't think of any other creative director that I would rather work for. Not only is Lee a great designer in his own right, he's an amazing boss.
Lee is in an exceptional class of directors that I have worked with over the years.
As a team leader and mentor, he is an advocate for awareness of design and technology trends. His Stretch program for design teams is an important part of this professional awareness. Lee's work has produced several Gold and Silver Addy Awards as well as a Judge’s Choice Award. Additional, he has led design courses as an adjunct professor at Kendall College of Art and Design and served multiple years as a judge in the West Michigan Creative Smackdown.
