Lee Beattie

Co-Founder and Director, Wire

Lee co-founded marketing agency, Wire in 2010 alongside Pam Scobbie in the midst of an economic downturn, with £1k between them and an office that doubled up as Pam’s kitchen. But from the beginning she had a mission. To build a no rules, media-neutral agency that believed in unmissable campaigns; that valued good people as much as good work; made it easier to be a working mum; and offered a quality national service from a regional office.

Within eight years, alongside Pam, she’s built Wire into an agency of 30 doers, dreamers and makers who deliver big ideas, big coverage and big heart for some of the country’s greatest brands, including Jura, Magners, Tennent’s Lager, The Dalmore, National Lottery and Marketing Edinburgh. At the same time, she’s built an inspiring, non-conventional culture that offers flexibility and promotes staff wellbeing as well as client satisfaction.

As a result, Lee was named Business Woman of the year alongside Pam Scobbie at the Scottish Women In Business Awards and the PRCA Scotland’s Inspirational Leader of the Year at the PRCA Awards in 2017.
