LEWIS PR Appoints 2 Senior Executives to Digital Practice

You're (both) hired!

LEWIS PR recently underwent a grandiose rebranding which involved an HR focus under the banner of its URL ‘TeamLewis.com.’ The human resources activities haven’t stopped with the news of two new hires in the ‘sweet office’ department.

(See how we connected the dots for everyone there? You’re welcome.)

For its digital practice, LEWIS Pulsea 60-person global team that collaborates closely with LEWIS Group companies Piston and Purestone, LEWIS hired Michael Brito as senior vice president of U.S. digital marketing and Mark Burr as senior vice president of the aforementioned Piston.

michaelbritoBrito, who will be based in the mothership in San Francisco, will lead digital marketing for LEWIS’ U.S. clients and be “responsible for expanding the business into new markets and verticals.”

He’s been head of social marketing at W2O Group, and senior vice president of social strategy at Edelman Digital, so it could be argued that he has the chops to really make a difference at LEWIS.

Furthermore, as a TEDx speaker and an adjunct professor, strategic social media at UC Berkeley, one could also assume Brito is relatively smart at client counsel.

markburrBurr, who will work in LEWIS’ San Diego office, will “play a critical role in integrating Piston into LEWIS while expanding its operational and service capabilities.”

He was previously with Uniworld Boutique River Cruises, where he was global digital director (and arguably, enjoying quite the many vacations).

Prior to Uniworld, Mark held executive-level digital marketing positions with Cohn & Wolfe and GSW Worldwide.

In summary, LEWIS isn’t doing too shabby in the digital department.
