Lee Settle

CFO & Head of Property

Lee loves to entertain – not the singing and dancing-type – the cooking a great BBQ for family and friends type of entertaining. He’s also focussed on work-life balance – working hard and staying fit while enjoying plenty of the fruits of Coonawarra and elsewhere.

Workwise, a natural affinity with numbers, and the satisfaction of seeing those numbers in the built form, charted a natural path into property. A key professional driver for Lee has always been the delivery of exceptional service and making a difference, and he takes pride in overseeing the property and finance teams at South Haven as they deliver on that vision.

Outside of South Haven, she enjoys escaping to the coast with her little family, extremely long lunches and getting lost in true crime shows and podcasts.

Construction Manager

Dan is our construction manager who makes sure that our construction projects at all sites run smoothly.
