At LEWIS PR for 13 years

Today I celebrate thirteen full years at my agency, LEWIS PR. No joke. When I joined there were ten people. Three of those are still with the firm (Chris Lewis, Ilona Hitel and Andy Oliver, who joined two weeks before me). Now the company has 300 staff. I’ve worked with and met some brilliant people […]

Eleven years at LEWIS

Just realized that I’ve been with my agency, LEWIS PR, for 11 years. I joined on April Fool’s Day in 1996. Wow, that’s quite a good stint in agency land. I still find it odd that staffers think the best way up the ladder is to hop from firm to firm. You don’t always gain […]

PR for Second Life

PR for Second Life

My team just won the PR campaign for Linden Lab, creator of Second Life. It was announced last week while I was in the hospital for Jake’s delivery.

I joined my agency ten years ago

Today is my tenth anniversary with my agency. That’s a pretty good stretch. In fact, if an agency has a 25% staff churn rate per annum, there is just a 5.6% chance of sticking around that long. Phew.

LEWIS PR is hiring

Yeah, I know – who isn’t? But I thought you might know someone who is looking for a change. If not – no problems, just thought I’d ask. I’m looking for account staff in San Francisco, Boston, Washington DC, San Diego, New York and Los Angeles. Most of these are entry-level account coordinator, account executive […]

Another Euro PR blog

Blimey, not sure what’s going on but here’s another European PR blog, this time by media matador, Jorge Lopez, who runs our Spanish office. Actually, it looks like this isn’t a new blog by Jorge, simply a fresh post after a long siesta since May. When I last caught up with Jorge, he explained that […]

Podcast on LEWIS Whale Watch blog

For Immediate Release: The Hobson and Holtz Report: Just a quick pointer to Shel Holtz’ and Neville Hobson’s most recent podcast (#105) in which they discuss the LEWIS Whale Watch Blog – quite favorably, I might add. Thanks guys. (Reality check – this is a podcast about a blog about a whale outside the Houses […]
