Lee Brook

CEO

background

Building on over 15 years of experience as a senior accountancy leader, Lee is guiding BKL through our most ambitious period of growth and innovation.

Originally from rural Wales, Lee spent seven years in the Army (Royal Signals) before setting his sights on a career in accountancy. After gaining experience as a partner at Mazars, Lee joined BKL in 2014. He became our CEO in 2020.

Under Lee’s leadership, BKL has grown at all levels and in all service areas. We have also shown our commitment to responsible business by becoming a Certified B Corporation and an Inclusive Employer, and establishing a charitable foundation. Following private equity investment from CBPE in 2023, Lee is working closely with BKL’s Board and wider leadership team to ensure that as BKL expands, we have an even greater impact on our clients, our people & culture and our communities.

In his role as CEO, Lee applies the same pragmatic insight and emphasis on thorough planning that he has used when working with clients. Lee keeps everyone at BKL informed through regular video updates, with an open invitation for any colleague to join him as a guest interviewer.

Away from work, Lee enjoys playing golf, supporting Welsh rugby and keeping fit.
