Stephanie Lis

10 Downing Street

Special adviser

Stephanie Lis spent six years at the Institute of Economic Affairs as communications officer, then director, before joining Dominic Raab’s Spad team at Dexeu in 2018. A typical IEA grad, she has criticised plain packaging of tobacco and supported the continuation of free movement after Brexit. Lis will surely count her work as a party press officer during the 2019 general election campaign among her proudest professional achievements. Just one month after the election, she was rewarded with a place in Downing Street. A Nottingham and LSE graduate with a masters in international relations, she likely understands Whitehall realpolitik better than most.
