Amy Lee

Amy Lee exemplifies the expression “go big or go home.” A self-made millionaire, Amy has spent her career pursuing business opportunities that captivate her attention. She built one of the first dollar store franchise chains in Vancouver, BC, and found success in high-end real estate development, banking, and restaurant management, all before deciding to retire at the age of 38.
Passionate about tackling new challenges, she instantly saw an opportunity in the Millionaire Chess Open and decided to “unretire” to take it on as her first project after travelling the world with her son for two years. Through her longtime friend Maurice Ashley, Amy saw the potential to bring chess into the mainstream, raising the game to a completely new level.
