Hello, I’m Lee, the Managing Director and Co-Founder of The Hook. From a young age, I have been passionate about art and design, and even back when Lego was all the rage, I loved exploring my creativity.

After completing my bachelor’s degree in Product Design & 3D Modelling at Liverpool John Moores University and then gaining experience in the industry, I became tired of working for companies that seemed to value profits over people. I longed for the autonomy to make a real difference and affect positive change. One particular employer told me to “stick to the pretty stuff on the computer,” and that was the catalyst I needed to pursue a career where I could truly make a difference.

So, I founded The Hook with other like-minded individuals who share my passion for making a positive impact on companies. Every day, I’m inspired by the work we do and the people we serve.

Welcome to The Hook – a place where creativity, passion, and people are at the forefront of everything we do.
