About LEWIS  

We are an entrepreneurial integrated communications agency that has gone from start-up to multinational in just 22 years. Listen to this – in that space of time, we’ve grown to a network of over 25 offices, over 550 employees and revenue of $64 million. Not bad for an agency that doesn’t take itself too seriously.

So, what’s next?

We’ve committed to opening 10 new offices across the APAC region by 2020, allowing us to rapidly increase our presence in the digital and creative space. It’s an ambitious plan but we’re firm believers in working with talented individuals with tenacity who will join us in achieving it.  

We’re agile. We’re fearless. We’re ambitious. And we’re looking to add to our courageous and confident team to take us to the future of integrated communications.
