The company revealed today that under the plan, codenamed APAC 2020 大湾区 (da wan qu), LEWIS’ Sydney operations will have an expanded labour pool, including new staff for an on-site digital hub.

Melbourne will host one of eight new offices that the agency will establish in the Asia-Pacific region. The other seven are in Thailand, China, Indonesia, and Vietnam.

“In addition to scaling our operations, my goal is to expand our creative and digital services. There’s a tremendous amount of talent throughout Southeast Asia in particular and our investment will enable us to tap into and unleash it for the benefit of clients,” said Lewis South APAC 2020 Controller Emma Jenkins.

“APAC is maturing rapidly to adopt a leadership position globally LEWIS has three major advantages over the holding companies; Firstly, we’re a unitary brand; We have no legacy infrastructure to dismantle and we have more investment funding available than most competitors. The 2020 plan will see LEWIS grow at a rate faster than almost any agency in the region. An ambitious plan requires talented, driven people to realise it and that’s what we’re looking for now – right the way across the region,” added agency SVP for Southeast Asia Scott Pettet.
