About us

Lee Quinn
Editor and Director, Eden Local Ltd

After an 18 year career with Sainsbury’s, Lee launched his own management consultancy in 1994. The company is still active today and although the business shifted from outdoor teambuilding to assessment and development centre work by 1998, during 1999, a chapter was closed on the design and facilitation of programmes to clients like BP, Ford Motor Company, Sainsbury’s, Birds Eye Walls, Airmiles and Anglo American. In 1999, Lee focused his work and skills with small and medium sized family and community based businesses. From 1999 to 2009, Lee worked with organisations who specialised in steel fabrication and structural steel, the timber merchant trade, the building merchant trade, leisure and tourism, catering, printing, commercial sport, events management, local media publications, radio and local government at town, district and county levels. This is one career that to date has seen long hours, a lot of travelling in the early days and a lot of community work, much of it voluntary in the later years.

Creating and writing local community magazines and match day sports programmes, has been Lee’s way of preparing and supporting his passion since 2003, in the hope that he will get to finish the book that he started writing in 2001. From an early age his career was dictated by his ability to live with dyslexia, which wasn’t really recognised in the 60’s and 70’s when he was at school. From shelf filler at Sainsbury’s to a lifetime ambition of wanting to read and write, this is where the story is so far. Whilst he never read a book from cover to cover until he was in his thirties, on average he now reads one or two a month.

Lee lives in Penrith, Cumbria, with his wife Charlotte and their two children, who go to local schools in Penrith. The fifth member of the family is probably the craziest, Sammy the Springer Spaniel.
