LONDON — Lewis has reported revenue of £46.2m for its 2017 fiscal year, which ended 31 July 2017.
That's an increase from the £45.8m in revenue Lewis reported for fiscal 2016 — which was up from the £41.6m Lewis reported for the year before that.
The agency has made numerous acquisitions in recent years and also restructured its global leadership in 2016.
The agency is crediting last year's performance to the addition of new consumer and tech clients including the robotics appliance company Ecovacs and Wix.com, the website creation platform, both of which were US wins.
Other 2017 highlights include Lewis investing in bolstering its offerings to clients in a range of sectors — consumer, financial services, biotechnology and automotive among them. Part of that money went to expanding in the US, which, most recently, included the opening of a New York office, and new digital leadership in China.
Also in 2017, the firm launched Lewis Expro, a communications consultancy that helps senior executives create and raise their personal profile.
“The team Lewis model, with its emphasis on reinvestment, has paid dividends this year,” said CFO James Oehlcke. "At a time when many brands are consolidating, we’ve continued to pioneer new services, invest in fresh leaders and win many new and exciting accounts. We head into 2018 armed with further acquisition and organic expansion plans. It promises to be another exciting year.”
