In her last role at Seagate Technology, she was responsible for overall factory quality and product reliability engineering for Asia and managed a staff of over 1,000 employees. Ms. Lee received an Advanced Diploma in Mechanical Engineering from Singapore Polytechnic, and a Master’s of Business Administration from the University of Leeds.
