At Work: HW Fisher & Company’s Sydney Levinson

Sydney Levinson, director of accounting firm HW Fisher & Co. in London, has worked a variety of firms in the creative industries including some that are just getting started in business. A visiting lecturer, he has taught at the Royal College of Art, Bath Spa University, Goldsmiths and the University of The Arts. He is also on the advisory boards of The Institute for Cultural and Creative Entrepreneurship at Goldsmiths, the Knowmads in Amsterdam and Music Tech Fest.

Dressed in a navy Vivienne Westwood suit and a blue striped Gucci tie — which Levinson said he bought for a bargain at Matchesfashion — he tucked a colorful Paul Smith handkerchief into the pocket of his jacket and paired his look with brown bespoke Carréducker shoes with gray oversize glasses.
