Meet Lanre Akanni

Your Senior Recruitment Consultant (Digital, Media & Marketing Data)

Lanre's Bio

I’m Lanre and if you want to discuss recruiting in Digital, Media or Marketing Data… I’m your man!

I’m London born and raised, and for me, the most rewarding part of my job is working with candidates and clients to find that perfect fit. When I’m not at work, I’m working out at the gym, maybe doing a touch of yoga, watching sports or a good Netflix /Amazon boxset and for a complete break it’s a travel destination like Miami or Lisbon.

Not everyone knows this, but many moons ago I used to work in a specialist record store and I got a chance to meet some very interesting acts before they became megastars: Jay Z, Usher, and Busta Ryhmes (to name a few). I used to dabble in a bit of DJ’ing from time to time, and I have also been on the News at 10 (please don’t ask!). From my days at the record shop, I still enjoy my tunes, namely R&B, hip hop, house, and reggae. and if we’re talking footie, it’s Man Utd all the way!

When is a good time
to call you back?
