Keith Lewis – a potted history
I’ve been in PR and Comms, I guess, since I did some of the promotional and media work for school productions. I specialised in PR at the University of Central Lancashire, when the PR degree courses first came out. By luck, I ended up on a placement year (not part of my course) at Vauxhall Motors, before joining the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders in their policy and parliamentary team. Then spent two and a half years as a Press Officer and then Media Manager. I then joined Zurich Insurance, spending six years doing a variety of media and, occasionally, internal comms roles. I was Head of Communications back at the SMMT between 2012-14 but then rejoined Zurich after a management restructure. I became UK Social Media Manager in April 2015.
I became a Chartered PR Practioner in December 2019, allowing me to use the Chart.PR designation after my name.
Outside of work, I’m married to Sarah and we have two sons who are now 11 and 9. Outside of all that, I’m a rugby union referee, currently operating as a Television Match Official in England’s Gallagher Premiership and run the RugbyReferee.net website and podcast.
