Harlow Ambassadors are businesses, organisations and individuals who come together to raise the profile of Harlow and support investment. Together we will tell Harlow’s story.

Here, a few of our Ambassadors explain what the role means to them.

Andrew Lee
Andrew LeeBusiness Director - Raytheon
I have become an Ambassador for Harlow because I believe that Harlow has made a huge contribution to the national economy, through its technology development and advanced science. Harlow does not always get the recognition it deserves and I want to help make a difference to ensure Harlow becomes a destination place for people to both work and live, and continue to attract investment for the long term prosperity of the area.

Being an Ambassador for Harlow is important to me because I built my company on the needs of this community and as a result, my fitness business has seen global success. Therefore, I believe I’m responsible for contributing to the positivity surrounding the place I earn from and call home.
People who live in Harlow have gumption, they’re out and about, vocal, interested, it’s buzzing and that’s a brilliant environment for a Start-Up company – which is my main focus as an Ambassador – to support the foundations that local businesses need to succeed.

Having been in business in Harlow since 1975 and being part of the fledgling property market at that time, I have witnessed first-hand, the steady growth of our town and home ownership which encourages families to relocate to our town of opportunity.
Discover Harlow is a natural progression with the promotion for our community and being an Ambassador shows my business commitment in both respect and support of our booming town called Harlow.

I was born and bred in Harlow and loved growing up in a town of exciting opportunities to work at the forefront of technology with GSK, Nortel and Arrow amongst the major employers. I want that feeling for my daughter and the next generation and can see that the work the ambassadors do, can bring the future of work back to Harlow and home-grow its talent.
Roger Lee
Roger LeeTrustee and Project Manager - Parndon Mill
As a student of Harlow College in the mid 60’s and engrossed in Parndon Mill since 1970, pretty much all of my life has revolved around Harlow.
I’m proud of Harlow’s pioneering heritage in its built environment, industrial firsts, cultural assets and social diversity.
Harlow is a town of aspiration and opportunity with a prosperous future on the horizon.

I am incredibly passionate about changing the perception of Harlow. I moved here from London 10 years ago to bring up my family and start a business and I haven’t looked back. I am a Harlow Ambassador as I am incredibly grateful for the life I lead here and I want to share my experiences to help support business growth and drive enterprise for future generations.
