Former Sergeant Major to business owner

Former Sergeant Major to business owner

Lee Williams has started on a new venture by making the switch from professional Car valeting life for the past 7 years, with the launch of a Lockfit® franchise business covering Shropshire, (Telford) and its surrounding areas.


Lee spent the last 7 years in the Car Valeting industry, from managing 36 sites up and down the country for Waves Consultancy as an Area Manager. Before switching to H20 Car valeting as their Business Development Manager, having grown the portfolio by fifty percent in his 4year reign. He also fulfilled the roles of H & S, Compliance, Maintenance and Project Manager. Lee or should I say Sergeant Major Williams, left the military in 2012 after a successful 22 year career gaining the Queens Warrant for service in the Royal Artillery. Completing tours across the world to “Serve and Protect” prior to acquiring his new Lockfit franchise, Lee wanted a new challenge and business opportunity.


Being a hands on type of individual and gaining experience across all building trades, Lee has decided it’s time to work for himself and put those skills to good use whilst working for himself. Lee has chosen to go down the franchising route and make an investment in a sector, with a brand which was well known and recession proof with growth potential.


Lee, said: “My previous role included working long hours and months away from home, this had an effect on my quality of home life”. I helped so many people start up their own business and guided them to success, it was my turn to venture for myself and guarantee my own success. No more travelling up and down the country for long periods of time with no reward for extended working hours. Time to reward myself/company for dedicated long hours and continuous commitment.


I’m keen and proud to join and be part of this exciting venture, I can’t wait to promote Lockfit within my area of responsibility. I will also attend Military career transition workshops to promote the franchise to expand across the UK.
