Lewis Alexander founded his eponymous consulting business focused on placing high level Creative positions for Louis Vuitton, Céline, Artek (amongst others). Hailed by Vogue Magazine as a 'Leading Headhunter in 'Fashion and Luxury'. Behind Alexander’s success is his zeitgeist to feel and translate the DNA of a brand to create team structures and cast the right talent across all positions.
In 2008, Alexander envisaged the future relationship between the creative industries such as interiors, art, fashion, design and digital needed to stay relevant through the anticipation of the changes in the way we live today and tomorrow. One key foresight was breaking down the traditional notion that talent should be industry segregated. Alexander strongly believed in the benefit of cross cultural and cross industry talent movement and therefore different experiences and points of view needed to transfer from one industry to another. This intuitive prediction spurred him to start his own consulting firm - a pioneering move at the time that has now become common place. For example at an early stage of the digital revolution Alexander made the prescient decision to move print Magazine Editors to brands and online retailers. Such as the movement of Jeremy Langmead, previous Editor of Esquire and Wallpaper*, to Mr Porter who comments: “Lewis advised me when I was considering a move from print media to online retail,” Jeremy Langmead remembers, “His advice was intelligent, considered, insightful and beneficial to my decision making.”
British-born, Alexander is based between Los Angeles and London with clients across Europe, USA, and Asia.
In his spare time Alexander is an active supporter of the Elton John AIDS Foundation and Unicef, whilst also mentoring design talent through The Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA)
