Leon Lewis, Assistant Forest Manager (Graduate)

Leon is one our latest graduates to join the team. He has a wealth of experience in project management and running his own business, and most recently has been volunteering for two and a half years with the Heart of England Forest.

He decided to change career into the forestry sector as he wanted to work in a greener industry. Previously he has run his own graphics installation and shop fitting company and was a photographer for 10 years. He is also a craftsman, working predominantly with wood, making large scale sculptures and wood turns. Leon has always had an affinity with and promoted the use of sustainable wood products and recently donated a 5 ton oak sculptural bench.

Coming from a farming family, he has always been happiest outdoors and working with nature, therefore working for Tilhill is his dream job and he is looking forward to developing his skills within the industry.
