With a background in farming, Mike Lee graduated from Harper Adams with a degree in Land and Farm Management. He began his career as an Assistant Farm Manager on a large arable farm in Buckingham before being promoted to Farm Manager.

After leaving to travel around South America for a year, Mike joined Dalcour Maclaren in 2007 as the company’s second graduate employee. Building on his agricultural experience, he worked for utility clients such as Affinity Water, Scottish and Southern Energy and National Grid Gas.

More recently Mike’s responsibilities at Dalcour Maclaren have focused on leading a team to provide Land Agency support to some of the largest water companies in the UK. He was appointed Associate Director in December 2014; in addition to his day-to-day role, he now drives Dalcour Maclarens IT and communications strategy and is heavily involved in recruitment.

Away from the office, Mike enjoys relaxing with his wife and six-year-old son, walking his dog in the countryside and renovating his home, a seemingly endless labour of love.
