This is our story

HHC Lewis was originally founded as Harrison Cowley Advertising, in Bristol, in 1962. A second office was opened in Southampton five years later. In the early 1980s the Southampton agency, and indeed the whole of the Harrison Cowley group, became the leading advertising agency outside London. In 1984, the group was bought by Saatchi and Saatchi, who remained the owners through the recession until 1994 when the (then) Hall Harrison Cowley management secured a buy-out. In August 1995, the Southampton agency was acquired by its vice-chairman and his wife and re-named HHC Lewis. In 2014 the company was acquired by Cherie Pearce and Adrian Chesney through another management buy-out. And now you are fully up to date!
