Lewis joined OC in July 2019, having been previously employed by a longstanding client of ours.
He grew up in Bromley and Brixton, not too far from our Waterloo office which makes him Optimal Compliance’s only genuine Londoner.
After leaving school, Lewis went to college to become an electrician but just as he qualified, he decided he didn’t fancy a life in overalls and instead sought the solace of an air-conditioned office.
So, after some globetrotting and contemplation, he went, CV-in-hand, to a top 50 accounting practice and got himself a job in the media and entertainment industry. Over the next few years he ended up rubbing shoulders with the stars, doing the accounts for world renowned musicians and bands.
After moving to industry accounting, he arrived here at OC where he says he loves having a ‘close-knit team’ to support each other and not having to be a ‘one-man band’ anymore! He’s excited to get involved with some of the more creative business planning we do and is a valued member of our newly-formed five-a-side football team.
