Edge Strategy Co-Author Alan Lewis Named One of the Top 25 Industry Leaders

BOSTON, MA (May 6, 2016) — Alan Lewis, co-author of Edge Strategy: A New Mindset for Profitable Growth and Managing Director at L.E.K. Consulting, has been named one of Consulting magazine’s “Top 25 Consultants in 2016” for Excellence in Retail. This award recognizes the “most influential consultants of the year” for their leadership skills and client impact.

“Our industry has some of the hardest working and most talented people anywhere and to be recognized as a leader among this group is a tremendous honor,” said Lewis. “It is especially exciting because the hard work, enthusiasm and dedication that our teams at L.E.K. deliver to clients and the successes we helped them achieve are also reflected through this award.”

Lewis has spent the past 12 years helping many companies identify new growth opportunities and realize hundreds of millions of dollars of incremental profit. He started his career as a professional engineer, commercializing new technologies in the chemicals sector. Lewis co-leads Edge Strategy® services at L.E.K. with Managing Director Dan McKone. In January, they published the Edge Strategy book with Harvard Business Review Press, which articulates the strategies that have helped clients across multiple industries find low-risk, high-margin revenue opportunities while leveraging their existing assets and customer relationships.

“We are proud that Alan is being recognized as a Top 25 Consultant in 2016. It is a remarkable recognition of his support for our clients as well as his development and implementation of Edge Strategy services with his colleague Dan McKone,” said Peter McKelvey, president of L.E.K.’s Americas region. “Alan has been instrumental in growing L.E.K.’s Consumer practice, and he has made his mark on the business world with his great client service and by co-authoring one of the most insightful and impactful business books of 2016. For all of these accomplishments, we congratulate him.”

Lewis will be honored at a gala awards dinner on June 16, 2016 in New York City and is being featured in an editorial piece in the May 2016 issue of Consulting magazine.
