Back on the podcast after 4 years, Marietta Lee, the newly-named CEO of The Lee Company, has a lot to talk about!


The Lee Company is now a 3rd generation family- business that is a leading innovator in miniature precision fluid controls. Simultaneous with transitioning to a new CEO, The Lee Company also reached their 75th anniversary.


On this episode, Ari and Marietta talk about her preparation for taking on the role and what she expects for the future. But they also cover much of what's happened since 2019 when Marietta first joined us on the podcast - a new internal training program, additional recruitment techniques, improved benefits, company growth and acquisitions.


There's a lot to learn in this episode about successful leadership transitions, scaling up, recruiting and retaining employees, and so much more!
