LEWIS PR, the global digital communications agency, has expanded its senior team with the appointment of Sarah Robinson, in the newly created role of global talent director.
Formerly managing director of Consolidated PR, and latterly senior partner at f1 recruitment, Robinson brings more than thirty years’ experience of helping entrepreneurial businesses grow by applying her people leadership, management and development skills.
Based in LEWIS’s headquarters in London, she will be responsible for developing and driving a talent management programme across LEWIS PR’s 24 offices, worldwide. She will also be key in the development and execution of two exciting, new global initiatives – the first in the PR industry – that will be launched in the near future.
As managing director of Consolidated PR, she championed an environment in which people could excel. Under her tenure, the agency won PR Week’s Consultancy of the Year and was placed in the Top 30, for four consecutive years, of the Sunday Times 150 Best Small Companies to Work For. Most recently, at f1 recruitment, Robinson has been responsible for talent tracking and fulfilling specific recruitment assignments, for a number of high-profile UK and international agencies, as well as in-house clients.
Robinson commented: “In working with LEWIS as a client, I have been most impressed and excited by their energy and commitment to developing their people and to attracting more, great talent. Their internal initiatives – including investing the majority of the profits back into the business – and drive to innovate have inspired me to join their team. It is my goal to establish LEWIS globally as the employer of choice for top talent in the industry.”
Chris Lewis commented: “We want to capitalise on our seventeen years of consistent growth, so have very ambitious development plans. To succeed, we recognise that it is vital for us to put talent at the core of the agency’s priorities – whilst continuing to deliver excellence to our clients. We are, therefore, delighted that Sarah shares this vision and brings her wealth of experience to help us deliver our goals.”
Sarah joins LEWIS PR on Monday, September 24, and will report directly to founder and CEO, Chris Lewis.
