Lee Rawlinson

Director of Innovation @ Kinetic

During his time as Head of Accommodation at the University of Liverpool, Lee and his team delivered a £250m residential program over a number of years that saw the construction of 4,000 en-suite rooms and the closure of 3,500 rooms in traditional halls of residence.

Now leading on innovation at Kinetic – he’s on a mission. Lee had led a relentless pursuit of reducing emails, spreadsheets, shared files and manual tasks across his department and believes that technology’s role should be to automate many of these tasks and let us humans concentrate on the bigger stuff.

Lee is incredibly passionate about improving people’s lives and experiences, which made him not only an expert in his field but also a highly valuable contributor to the resolution of student wellbeing issues across the higher education sector.
