Lewis Powell joined Solution in January 2014 to work on the one of the cornerstones of the business; Interior Design. After forging strong relationships with a number of London’s leading studios he then took the natural step into the Architectural market where he has been working since the start of 2016. As of late, and due to the relationships he has, Lewis has been working with both Interior Design and Architectural practices to assist them with business-critical recruitment needs.
Lewis’s polite and professional approach goes down well with clients and candidates alike and he has built up strong relationships with a number of the best design studios in London.
Outside of work Lewis is a sport enthusiast. He follows football, cricket, golf and tennis. If you can’t find him on the edge of his sofa watching Arsenal, you’ll catch Lewis either at the studio or out on the road playing gigs with his band.
