Lee Wales

Ashfield Digital & Creative, part of UDG Healthcare plc

Summary of work

Lee has spent a number of years finely tuning his skills and his offerings to rise to VP Strategy. His evolution matches the evolution the healthcare sector has undergone. In 2017 healthcare communications is more about insightful, contextualised content that delivers meaningful results. Lee’s almost obsessive desire to enrich medical communications empathises with the sector’s new ethos. Lee drives our innovative thinking and is seen as a key stakeholder within Ashfield Healthcare Communications.

This ambitious nature has also been instrumental in creating a team who, under Lee’s leadership, has flourished. As a natural leader Lee continuously looks for opportunities not only for himself, but for each member of his team, focusing on areas where both individual and team successes can be achieved and where the shaping of fulfilling careers can be obtained.

Internally, Lee is hugely respected and his selection to speak on behalf of Ashfield at eyeforPharma for the last two years is a reflection of his reputation. Externally, Lee plays an important role in both securing and delivering new business and has been instrumental in securing a number of project wins which have exceeded £1.35 million in the last 12 months.

Judges' comments

Clearly very talented and humble, we particularly liked Lee’s philosophy of leadership. He has already got great experience and is busy acquiring a board leadership base - doing a lot of the stuff that should get him to the next level within an organisation. He’s obviously extremely thoughtful and caring towards his people and a really strong emerging talent.
