Hew did a placement year at BMW sports marketing and met Smyle while he was there. After some travelling and freelance work he joined Smyle eight years ago.
Boss says: "Hew is a hugely talented member of our team and a true Smyle legend. He has contributed much in his seven years with us, leading some of our largest and most complex projects with great success," says Dominic Thomas-Smith, director.
Best project I've worked on: The opening and closing of the Ryder Cup in 2014.
Most challenging moment: Last year a venue pulled out of a public-facing event and we needed a new venue capable of taking 15,000 people with a lead time of three weeks. We ended up using The O2 and it was amazing.
Dream client: Red Bull with whom we actually work. Or a large-scale music event, festival or carnival, like Bestival.
Alternative career: I'd work on a farm as both myself and my wife's family own farms. It's similar because the work is all project based and hands on.
Goals before 40: Continue working with the biggest brands. I'd like to be head of events and do some research into farming so I can eventually run away to a farm.
