I’m Laurent Maguire, entrepreneur, technologist and co-founder of a digital product agency. I’ve been CEO at Kyan since we began in 2002. I'm a hands-on leader, with experience in development and a keen interest in tech, games, cars and travelling. Over the years I’ve remained very much client-facing, working across new business, marketing and engineering, and also ensuring that we uphold our positive company culture in everything that we do. I enjoy meeting new agency partners and supporting other agency owners in their journeys.
Why I am judging these awards
'Agency life' has been a huge part of my own life for so many years now. It's been great to watch my own business grow, but also really interesting to see what is happening in the industry and celebrate the successes of others too. I'm close with many agency leaders and there's a great culture of sharing there. The Drum Agency Business Awards is an opportunity for me to share in the celebration and recognition of brilliant work. I'm looking for exceptional creative, compelling stories and perfect execution.
