Jonathan Lee was educated at Maidstone Grammar School for boys and, on completing his education here, he chose to move straight into the commercial sector. He started his working life in the distribution industry with Henley Transport as a traffic operator.
In a typically thorough approach to his work, Jonathan threw himself into a wide variety of role opportunities, covering everything in his early days from order entry to planning and organising drivers. His energy and dedication saw him make quick progress through the business. He soon moved into an early role as Transport Manager, before rising to the position of Operations Manager and finally General Manager.
Jonathan then moved into account management with Fowler Welch, with responsibility for one of the company’s largest customers. This central role gave him a strong working knowledge of all the sites and his fellow team members across the Fowler Welch network. Now, in more recent years, his role has grown to encompass business development for the whole of south of the UK, covering all aspects of the business from transport movements to warehousing and consolidation. Jonathan’s earlier operational experience, with its exposure to our broad capabilities and inherent flexibility, has been an ideal platform for his new position. He was promoted to Head of Sales in 2016.
Jonathan is a family man with two children and, when time allows, his outside interests include football, sports, cooking and wine collecting.
