Lewis Communications, the UK hi-tech agency, has opened its first
overseas office in California and is set to expand further into Europe
over the coming months.
The company, which was set up in 1989, opens for business in San Diego
next week. The office will be staffed by director June Lewis and account
manager Morgan McLintoc who will report back to managing director Chris
Lewis in London.
Lewis explained that San Diego was an important centre for the hi-tech
industry and that a presence there would benefit clients both in Europe
and the US. ’The office will be a springboard for us to sell to US
technology companies who don’t want to deal with partner agencies in
Europe, but require one voice across the pond into European markets,’ he
Representative offices are planned later this year in Paris and Munich
and will be run by two staff each reporting into London.
