Elwyn Lewis Reviews
In my time collaborating with Elwyn, he showed a remarkable knowledge of the correct application of Statistical Process Control. His eye for detail enabled us to garner significantly greater information from process data and this facilitated improvements in control and yield. His background as a Chartered Quality Engineer was very evident. Furthermore, he was also humble enough to help out with more mundane tasks when there urgency on the project demanded. This was greatly appreciated.
Elwyn has got a vast knowledge of quality systems that he is able to utilise in any industry.
Excellent communication skills on all levels.

Elwyn was my Manager for some months during 2013.

He was certainly the most academically qualified of any having attained all four of the Qualifications in the American Society for Quality and one of only a few to accomplish this.
Elwyn leads by example and was supportive to me throughout our working relationship.
Listening was a strength reinforced by tolerance.
He exudes a professional demeanour, is assertive but not aggressive and appears to command respect with little effort.
His depth of knowledge on multiple Quality Tools and techniques is admirable.
We have worked well together to resolve technical issues establishing Root Causes and implementing Containment and Corrective actions.
Elwyn is a Quality Professional and extremely competent and capable at the highest levels.
I firmly believe that he would be an asset to any company and would in my opinion be part of the ''intellectual capital ''.
He is also quite a modest man which is an endearing aspect of his character.

I worked with Elwyn at BT Cellnet at the start of its transformation into O2 UK and in most need of innovative problem-solving and a structured quality approach.

At a personal level he is an open, supportive professional that I found a real pleasure to work with.

Elwyn Lewis is a meticulous person who has thorough , in depth, knowledge of Quality management , both from an operational and system perspective . Enjoyed working with Elwyn.
I worked with Elwyn when he was both Quality Engineering Manager and Project Timing Manager. I found him to be innovative and effective, in particular the project management system which he established for the launch of new products proved to be successful. I would recommend Elwyn as a key member in any effective team.
Elwyn is an outstanding manager and expert in his field. His knowledge of quality management is extensive and he consistently delivers behinds expectations. It was a please to work with him and I personally learned a great deal from him. I have no hesitation in recommending him.
I can easily recommend Elwyn. I worked with him on a number of initiatives at Pearson. He was diligent, insightful and was easy to work with. He was inspiring to his team and contributed constructively to senior management meetings. He knows his "stuff" and is very willing to share and offer help to anyone. A great guy and would be an asset to any company.
Elwyn, was seconded on occasions to support an in-house business turn around team (which I headed) with installing/ improving unit company quality systems and processes. Elwyns input was always professional and his ability to turn behaviours around within short lead times was remarkable. I have no difficulty in recomending Elwyn to anyone wanting a pragmatic, professional approach, to using Quality Systems to improve company performance.
I have known Elwin Lewis for almost 21 year,and my journey of success is linked to his expert ability to groom individuals and companies to perform at a level higher that the natural person or average mind. He has the ability to find value and add value through the demonstration of his knowledge and application of toolsets.
It is with great regret that we lack the calibre of professionals such as Elwin Lewis in industry, he is truly passionate to unleash potential. He has been a consultant in two companies that i have worked for, and he has been instrumental in setting the framework for the acheivements of our accrediation as well as training on the effective use of statistical tools to aid in problem solving, realizing opportunity cost and promoting the mindset that we are all responsible for Quality.
In my personal capacity I would recommend Elwin Lewis, for your next challenge.

Elwyn worked for me at BT Cellnet and proved to have an excellent grasp of quality management and its impacts and benefits on the business.His diligence, knowledge, expertise and professionalism enables me to have no hesitation in recommending him for roles in this domain.
Elwyn worked directly for me at Smiths Manufacturing South Africa as my Engineering Manager, Elwyn led a successful team of quality engineers ensuring product reliability / cost effective optimization. A strong leader, advanced Quality management qualifications who would be an asset to any organisation. Tim Maber.
Elwyn reported to me in my role as Chief Operating Officer for Pearson Assessments and Testing International. The group consited of a number of large business units all of which had their own/varied quality systems. Elwyn worked to unify those systems, mkae them more robust, filling gaps where they existed working with co-workers and customers at the highest levels.
Elwyn's involvement during his period at T&N was in the main, within the High-tech Heat Exchanger/Radiator division. As a Tier 1 supplier to OEMs both locally, in South Africa, and internationally. Elwyn's responsibility, through the team reporting to him, was to install and maintain systems to satisfy the appropriate audits and accreditations as specified by the range of customers.
Further Elwyn used his practical experience, in particular with regard to Statistical Techniques, Problem-Solving techniques and Reliability Engineering, to achieve significant improvements, which contributed very clearly to overall company performance.
During Elwyn's time at T&N, I was responsible for turn-around projects within the T&N group and had the occasion to have Elwyn's input on some of the projects, that I was running in other divisions of the T&N group. I found his approach to be professional at all times. His approach achieved solid buy-in from the management and operators that he was advising, and as such produced effective and robust solutions.
