Vin Lee has built Grand Metropolitan into the premier luxury goods holding company in North America. With over 120 brands under the Grand Metropolitan umbrella, Lee has worked diligently since opening the company, and he has built it piece by piece. Grand Metropolitan has become synonymous with luxury brands, and so has Lee.
Starting his career in the 1980s in the hospitality industry, Lee was tasked with turning around a golf resort in Northern Michigan, while still too young to legally drink. The experience led him to other areas and industries including jewelry.
Lee has also taken an incredible journey that has led him down numerous paths. Each one has led to the next with Lee grabbing the opportunities in front of him and running with them.
More often than not, the “King of Luxury” has succeeded in his journey. The path Lee is currently on has been his most successful and he has put years of blood, sweat and tears into it.
