His distinguished career included leading operations worldwide for Hilton Hotels Corporation, Marriott Hotels & Resorts, and The Walt Disney Company. As Executive Vice President of Operations for Walt Disney World® Resort, Lee led a team of 40,000 Cast Members and was responsible for the operations of 20 resort hotels, 4 theme parks & more.
Lee learned at Disney that “it’s not the magic [of Disney] that makes it work; it’s the way we work that makes it magic…” and key to that is great leadership. One of his legacies at Disney was the creation of Disney Great Leader Strategies that was used to train & develop 7000 leaders at Walt Disney World.
Lee is sought after by organizations worldwide to speak about successful leadership & life, including the U.S. Military. He led seminars for soldiers in Iraq, focused on using their leadership & organizational skills as they re-enter the workforce, and making a successful emotional transition from military life to civilian life.
