For more than 20 years, Lewis has been working in strategic communications. Having started his communications career in politics, he served as a full-time campaign staffer on the Clinton/Gore 1996 re-election campaign, and worked for then-U.S. Senator Robert Torricelli (D-NJ) as his deputy press secretary, Lewis brings a “campaign” mentality to all his client engagements. After moving to private practice, Lewis has amassed vast experience running cannabis-specific programs for companies across the entire supply chain of the industry. This has ranged from companies bidding for a license in NY State, to growers in Colorado, cannabis-specific real estate companies in Washington and Nevada, and the first investment bank to focus solely on the legal cannabis industry. Lewis has also spoken twice at the Cannabis World Congress and Business Exposition on how to create effective campaigns for cannabis companies in an “oddly” regulated industry. Lewis brings a unique mix of traditional PR expertise, mixed with public affairs and social media knowledge, to all his client engagements.
