Lee Sutherland is Senior Talent Agent and a dam good one at that. But working under the best in the industry for a number of years (that's Lauren Miller from HMMG for those in the know) isn't where the skills end to make her one of the most well rounded agents out there.
She knows influencer marketing and digital strategy from the eyes of an influencer, and on the flip side as a publicist, agent and manager. For the past decade she has developed her own personal brand as a Health and Fitness Expert, blogger and media personality.
Her passion for small business stems from her own experience as a business owner twice over – as Director of Fitness In The City (Personal Training plus popular blog) and Founder of organic tea company, Little Wildling Co, which has retail and wholesale distribution throughout the world.
Lee worked in Marketing then PR for the worlds largest record label UNIVERSAL MUSIC for 5 years managing the PR for clients ranging from The Presets to Kayne West.
In 2011 Lee joined the HMMG as an Agent and Manager and managed the careers of clients including Ryan Fitzgerald, Zoe Bingley-Pullin, Lola Berry, Elka Whalan and Danny Clayton to name a few.
