“The Asia Pacific region is the fastest growing within LEWIS and there is still so much potential,” said Oliver. “I’ve enjoyed my time in the region immensely and am proud of the speed of our growth, the great work we’re doing for clients and the brilliant team we’ve built. I’m confident that under Scott’s guidance the region will continue to grow and excel.”

“After almost a decade with the company, Scott has proven to be a very capable leader,” added CEO, Chris Lewis. “Under Andy’s leadership, the company has doubled in size in Asia Pacific in the last three years. This is also our goal moving forward, to double in size again by 2018. We will achieve this through a combination of focused organic growth and strategic acquisitions, taking us into new geographies and adding to our digital marketing portfolio.”

Globally, LEWIS has revenues in excess of $72 million. This represents a year-on-year growth of over 40 percent. In April, the agency received a $27 million funding package from its global banking partner, HSBC.
