LEE ROSE - MANAGING DIRECTOR

Lee is a curious shift disturber with a knack for working across systems to drive change. A former camp director, Lee is prone to tipping canoes and shaking things up both on the water and at work. He lives on the traditional unceded territory of the Algonquin nation in Gatineau, Quebec, with his three kids and all of their hockey gear.
