Graeme Lee: UK Sales Manager

Graeme first started working in this industry over 10 years ago, when it was early days for portable VMS in the UK. This eventually led him to MVIS as its UK Sales Manager. He covers the entire UK, from Land’s End to John O’ Groats. New customers will more often than not see him first as a representative of MVIS.

How has your role & the industry changed over the time you’ve been with MVIS?

When I joined MVIS, the Olympic Games contract was underway. Following the games, we had to develop a network of customers as quickly as possible. I’ve been very fortunate in that most of these customers have remained with us since.

The industry has changed substantially over the last 10 years. There have been peaks and troughs in levels of investment, and a steady increase in the appetite for portable ITS solutions.

What’s a ‘normal’ day for you?

Visiting existing and potential customers throughout the UK. Attending meetings, trade shows, and lately more overseas business trips.

What is your favourite thing about working for MVIS?

I have always liked the “can do” mentality at MVIS. As the team has grown, the ethos has not changed. Every member of staff is crucial, and all are prepared to go the extra mile.

What’s been one of your favourite projects so far?

I’ve been involved in some interesting projects over the last few years. Without doubt, the most testing was the Project Orange scheme on the M1 corridor last year, which saw 156 new VMS units to be deployed on sections panning over 100 miles, in a very short time frame. Not only did we have to deliver them but we had to manufacture them too in a very short time frame.
