Simon Lewis

Visiting Professor

Simon helps develop FTI Consulting’s client relationships across the region and support the firm’s strategic initiatives. In his role as Global Head of Financial Services in Strategic Communications, Simon works closely with senior leaders throughout the firm to maximise business success in this important sector – ensuring best-in-class client service, coordinating cross-border business development opportunities and enabling further investments in talent.

 

His distinguished career has spanned both the private and public sectors. As the founding CEO of the trade group the Association for Financial Markets in Europe (AFME), the organisation has become a powerful voice for banks operating in Europe’s wholesale financial markets, serving as a bridge between its members and policymakers in the UK and the EU27. AFME has led on critical issues such as Capital Markets Union, Banking Union, the implementation of MiFID II and Brexit.

 

Previously, Simon was Director of Communications and the UK Prime Minister’s Official Spokesman at 10 Downing Street and in 1998, was appointed as the first Communications Secretary to The Queen. He has held a number of senior corporate roles, including Director of Corporate Affairs at Vodafone, Centrica and NatWest.

 

Simon has a degree from Oxford University in Philosophy, Politics and Economics. He also holds an M.A. in Political Science from the University of California at Berkeley as a Fulbright Scholar. He is Chairman of the charity Young Enterprise and a Visiting Professor at the Cardiff School of Journalism and at The London Institute of Banking and Finance. Simon is a member of the Chatham House North American Advisory Council. He was awarded an OBE in 2014 and appointed an Honorary Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (“CIPR”) in 2016.
