I founded Lee Enterprises Consulting in 1995 with a vision of helping create a cleaner world and more stable climate. I envisioned my children and grandchildren living in a world that used the abundant natural resources, and where conflicts over oil were unnecessary. Lee Enterprises Consulting began small and continued to expand as circumstances dictated. Over the past twenty-five years, I have witnessed this group grow into the world’s largest bioeconomy consulting group- with over 150 experts in biofuels, bio-based chemicals, feedstocks, biomaterials, synthetic biology, land & natural resource management, food & livestock production, and hemp/cannabis – all helping in commercializing environmentally preferred technologies worldwide. My original idea was to become a “one stop shop”, where bioeconomy investors, developers and others could call to find just the right type of expert for any bioeconomy project. I am proud to say that we have accomplished that goal.
While making a profit is certainly important, “ringing the cash register” is not what motivates me. My real motivation comes from the compliments I receive about our experts and the quality of the work they have performed for clients. As Coach Vince Lombardi once said “individual commitment to a group effort is what makes a team work”. Our team is truly our success, and I am continually amazed at the talented experts that accept our invitation to join this group and the unparalleled breadth of knowledge we have available. I look forward to the continuing this journey and making a difference in the world.
