Think London, which is 15 years old, works with overseas companies to help them develop their businesses in London. It offers them access to people that are experienced in every aspect of locating and doing business in London.

It says that over 1,200 companies from 40 countries have benefited from its services since it was set up in 1994. It is based in London but also has offices in Beijing, New York, Mumbai and San Francisco.

It works with partner organisations including the London Development Agency, the City of London Corporation, government body UK Trade & Investment and London First.

Leih says he is pleased to be able to “contribute to Think London’s invaluable work in keeping the city front of mind for foreign companies looking to expand overseas”.

Leih also serves on the board of the London 2020 Legacy initiative, in addition to his role as president of the European Association of Communications Agencies.
