Your Senior Account Manager (Games & Entertainment)

Lanre's Bio

I’m Lanre and if you want to discuss recruiting in the AV sector… I’m your man! As a Consultant in our AV team my specialist focus is audio visual, event production and event technology (which also includes stage, light, venues and live events).

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, or watching sports.

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 also 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. My favourite food it’s jollof rice and chicken, and if we’re talking footie, it’s Man Utd all the way!
