December 09, 2015


Here at Lee Company, “CEO” could stand for Congrats, Exceptional Owner! We’re delighted to announce that the Nashville Business Journal has named Bill Lee as one of the Most Admired CEOs of 2015.

“I’m truly honored to be included among such outstanding leaders,” says Bill. “I want to thank all the Lee Company employees for the work they do that makes me look good!”

Bill says the best decision he ever made as CEO was “to focus on creating a culture rather than a company. We at Lee Company enjoy an environment where people can be purposeful, while meaningful work is the standard.”

Under Bill’s purposeful leadership, Lee Company has seen tremendous growth – our team now includes more than 950 professionals, all dedicated to working for you and giving back to the communities we serve.

“At Lee Company, we succeed by changing people’s lives for the better,” Bill says. “Through our charitable fund, we have donated hundreds of thousands of dollars and thousands of hours of employee time.”

As a testament to the power of this approach, Lee Company has also been honored as one of Tennessee’s top 5 Best Companies to Work for and received the 2015 Better Business Bureau Torch Award for Ethical Commerce.

Bill is a graduate of Auburn University and has worked at Lee Company for more than 30 years. Congrats to all the Most Admired CEOs!
