Lewis Communications is poised to open new offices in Singapore, France

and Germany as part of an expansionist drive by the hi-tech agency.



The three new offices, which are being launched on the back of existing

client business, are due to open by next summer.



Lewis, which came 22nd in this year’s PR Week hi-tech league table with

income of almost pounds 575,000, is also looking to recruit five new

staff, including two at account director level.



The agency, which currently has 24 staff based at offices in London,

Boston and Santiago, is also looking to move to larger London premises.



Managing director Chris Lewis, who established the agency in 1989, said

the expansion in staff and offices followed this year’s 60 per cent rise

in business.



‘We are looking to open more offices,’ Lewis told PR Week. ‘Our main

concern is that we grow as fast as we can without losing our distinctive

culture. It is important to us that we transplant our UK culture; not

because we are xenophobic but because it is hard-working and relaxed and

we feel it works.’
