SAN FRANCISCO — Former Lewis leader Stephen Corsi has joined Method Communications as an executive VP in the agency’s San Francisco office, part of the agency’s push to expand its global tech offering.

Corsi is charged with helping Method expand its global PR and marketing services, following its acquisition by UK holding group Chime Communications late last year. He will also lead Method’s enterprise team.

Before joining Method, Corsi spent more than seven years at Lewis, most recently as EVP. His accomplishments there include building the firm’s global digital marketing practice, serving clients including McAfee, BlackBerry, Comcast and VMware. Earlier in his career, Corsi was an iCrossing MD and mortgage company First NLC Financial Services CMO.

“Since joining Chime, we are seeing tremendous momentum in building out a true global PR tech business, and Stephen will immediately add to the incredibly talented team we have in place,” said Method CEO David Parkinson. “Stephen has proven expertise in leading teams and providing strategic guidance to clients. His new ideas and perspectives will be invaluable as we continue working with Harvard and inEvidence to offer a global solution and pursue major enterprise clients.”
