The 2016 Top 25 Consultants: Alan Lewis


Alan Lewis L.E.K. Consulting Excellence in Retail

In an industry like retail, where companies often operate with razor-thin profit margins, realizing hundreds of millions of dollars of incremental profit and placing big bets to establish new platforms for growth can mean the difference between a shuttered door and another year in business. Those are among the many transformative efforts executed by L.E.K Consulting’s Alan Lewis, who for these and other reasons is our winner of the Top 25 Consultants Award in the Excellence in Retail category.

Lewis is managing director for L.E.K. Consulting and co-leads its Edge Strategy practice. In fact, he literally wrote the book on Edge Strategy along with colleague Dan McKone. Edge Strategy: A New Mindset for Profitable Growth, was just released by the Harvard Business Press. In it, Lewis outlines a practical framework for finding new growth opportunities, applicable to companies across all industries.
