Michael Lax


Hi. I’ve been with MEC since 2002 and am the Associate Publishing Director. I had a further nine years in publishing, including a stint as a lexicographer, before that. Though I’ve never taught, the English language is in my blood, from my mum correcting my grammar (If I were, if I were…) to getting a degree in English Literature.

Away from work, you can often find me running or playing squash, supporting the best football team in the world (Leicester City) or heading off on hiking trips. In my picture I’m sitting on a raft on the River Dunajec in Poland after an all-day hike.
