We are our people.

We are an unpretentious, hard working group of happy humans. And we’ve made this ideas company grow in leaps and bounds while having fun and making great friends of the people we work with and of the people we work for. me&lewis is a collection of talented individuals who dedicate their lives to not only discovering great ideas, but to finding ways of nurturing them and growing them into bigger things.

Paul Meehan

Principal & Creative Strategist

In his former life, Paul Meehan enjoyed a long and interesting career on the “client” side of the business. From Brand Manager on Guinness in the east, to Director of Marketing on Mike’s Hard Lemonade and Sleeman Brewery in the west. But it was his entrepreneurial spirit and his uncontainable creativity that would make opening me&lewis with Jeff in 2007 a foregone conclusion

Jeff Lewis

Principal & Senior Creative Director

Both in Toronto and Vancouver, Jeff Lewis has had long-standing creative relationships with icons… from Coca-Cola, to Unilever, Nabisco to General Motors, Starbucks to Mars Brands. All worthwhile experience before eventually opening up shop with Paul. Because while their ideas company would certainly start small, it would prove to have an uncanny knack for attracting brands that were anything but.

Zach Kellum

Zach Kellum

Managing Director, Toronto

Over the past 12 years, Zach has developed innovative and successful marketing programs for some very significant brands. As a gifted singer, songwriter, and with a solid background in both market research and creative marketing, Zach brings an incredibly fresh perspective to the table. It also made him the obvious choice to manage our Toronto office.

Arjan Chima

Arjan Chima

Managing Director, Vancouver

Sure, Arjan has an MBA, huge experience, and a boatload of charm…but what really makes him such a prized member at me&lewis is his incredibly organized approach and sense of professionalism. When he’s not maximizing the agency’s value with client engagements, he is responsible for establishing and executing the  strategic goals and objectives of the agency. 

Barry Ringstead

Barry Ringstead

Business/Brand Development, Europe

Barry has actually been with me&lewis since the beginning, as he became our very first client more than 10 years ago. Barry has now officially joined our team, and brings with him national and international retail experience from his work in Canada, the US & a global role based in Switzerland. Now living in the UK Barry will be based out of our London office.

Catherine Hamilton

Catherine Hamilton

Account Director, North America

Catherine gets corporate marketing. She speaks multi-unit international retail and has lived the push-pull of building a brand with long-term vision and securing immediate results. Integrated marketing is in her bones and she applies 20 years of know-how to new ideas so her clients meet their goals.

Darryl Forde

Darryl Forde

Account Manager

After more than a decade working in the beer industry, Darryl brings his wealth of knowledge and experience to me&lewis Toronto. His background in market insight and national sales made him the obvious choice to manage key accounts in Toronto. Darryl’s keen fashion sense has–without question–raised the bar for “business casual” attire around the Toronto office, and quite possibly the entire nation!

Shirley Ng

Shirley Ng

Account Manager

Shirley has an impeccable eye for detail and organization that ensures our clients are well taken care of. Born and raised in the Lower Mainland (quite an anomaly these days), she also knows the best place to get donuts and treats us often. Damn you, Shirley...

Shannon Doyle

Shannon Doyle

Junior Project Manager

Shannon has joined us fresh from finishing up her honours degree in Political Studies with a minor in History at Queens University. Sure, she can take most of us down in political debate, but she’s set her sights on advertising. Sorry academia. Her professional approach to day-to-day tasks and finding solutions to client challenges is what makes her shine.

David Wong

David Wong

Senior Art Director

Aside from a year at FCB in Hong Kong, David spent almost all of his 25-year advertising career in one agency, Grey Vancouver. But then, when you look at David’s impressive body of work, from Starbucks, to Vancity, to the Gates Foundation and so much more, it’s abundantly obvious why any agency would desire his loyalty. David, are you listening?

Allison Prinsen

Allison Prinsen

Art Director & Designer

Allison is just one of those creative talents who gets it. Able to fill both the role of designer and agency art director, Allison fashions wonderful visual solutions to creative problems with relative ease. Or, at least, that’s how it seems. Few days go by when we’re not thankful for the design solutions she brings to everything she does. We can speak for her clients as well.

Jim Glen

Jim Glen

Designer

Jim brings an incredibly calm and thoughtful vibe to the me&lewis team. It might have something to do with the fact that he spent 10 years working in the psychiatric side of healthcare before attending Emily Carr’s School of Design and Communication. His love of photography, quirky illustration styles and story telling gives interesting colour to his creative.
