Talented People but it’s the character that counts

Lewis joined Jackson Spalding as a project manager on a variety of accounts, but his diverse skillset makes him a nimble contributor on many other fronts.

He came to us after three years in various roles with the multinational engineering firm, AECOM. Most of that work focused on marketing transportation alternatives in the metro area.  He wrote and filmed videos promoting the CobbLinc Transit System, produced social content to educate residents about the GA 400 Express Lanes, and served as Deputy Project Manager for Georgia Commute Options, a federally funded program designed to reduce traffic and improve Atlanta’s air quality.

Through his association with AECOM, Lewis also had the opportunity in 2018 to help operate a stateside resource center to facilitate emergency repairs for citizens of the U.S. Virgin Islands whose homes had sustained damage during Hurricanes Irma and Maria.

He began his career leading Campus Outreach for Georgia Tech, a position that involved fundraising, marketing and coordination of region-wide retreats and events. A highlight of this experience was planning and leading two cross-cultural exchanges in Goiania and Belo Horizonte, Brazil.

During college at The University of Georgia, Lewis participated in a similar enculturation trip to Johannesburg, South Africa, where he lived with the locals, exchanged ideas and even came close to an elephant or two.

He graduated with an accounting degree from the Terry College of Business and earned a Certificate in Personal and Organizational Leadership from the university’s prestigious Institute for Leadership Advancement.

Away from work, Lewis connects to his north Georgia mountain roots through hiking and camping, and also delves into his artistic side, cooking, playing piano and guitar and working on a short film screenplay, which he vets with other independent filmmakers at weekly meet-ups.
