Howard Lee

I am Chairman and a founding partner of Headland, having spent my entire career in the world of financial and corporate communications. After graduating from Cambridge, I started my professional life at Charles Barker City, then joined Valin Pollen and later Gavin Anderson & Company, where I became Vice Chairman of the Group in 1999. I left to establish Headland in 2005.

I’ve advised many UK and international clients on complex financial PR and corporate communications campaigns, the most recent being the management buy-in and IPO of the AA – the largest UK IPO in 2014.  I have also been involved in many high profile transactions, including M&A, restructurings and equity capital markets operations in the UK, across Europe and in the United States. I also act as a senior advisor to a number of UK and international corporations on their financial, investor and corporate communications
