BEworks Brings In Lazaridis, Schulich Alum David Lewis, Ph.D.
BEworks, a management consulting firm that applies behavioral science to consulting, has chosen David Lewis, Ph.D., as its Chief Client Officer. Lewis earned his Ph.D. in economics from the Lazaridis School of Business and Economics at Wilfrid Laurier University and an MBA from York University’s Schulich School of Business. The business scholar is optimistic about the opportunities ahead for the company.
“With almost a decade applying behavioral science to business challenges, BEworks is poised for tremendous growth, and I’m thrilled to be joining such a high-energy, passionate team of scientists,” Lewis says.
Though Lewis has held senior positions at companies like UBS Bank and Barclays, his most recent position has been as an Assistant Professor at Ryerson University’s Ted Rogers School of Management.
On Lewis’ new role, Kelly Peters, CEO and Co-founder of BEworks says:
“With his breadth of leadership experience and his scientific background, David [Lewis] will help us collaborate even more closely with our clients and introduce BE thinking to a broader range of organizations, further helping us bridge the gap between academia and business.”
“Organizations that embrace scientific thinking can embrace innovation and change faster, and take informed risks with confidence,” Lewis adds.
“With almost a decade applying behavioral science to business challenges, BEworks is poised for tremendous growth, and I’m thrilled to be joining such a high-energy, passionate team of scientists. Our upcoming Summit for Science in Financial Services in September is a testament to BEworks’ leadership in the behavioral science consulting space, as we convene the world’s best-known behavioral scientists to collaborate with business leaders from across North America.”
