Each year Campaign launch their search for 30 Under 30 – scouting for the top talent in the world of commercial media. With entry open to anyone working in the commercial media ecosystem it’s a tough competition, and this year saw more than 130 people enter hoping to reach the coveted top 30. Which makes it all the more special that two of our very own iProspectors made the list for 2019.

Laura Richardson, Paid Search Associate Director, and Nick James, Head of SEO Strategy, are two of iProspect Manchester’s team to have been named in Campaign’s shortlist

Here’s what it means to them:

Laura Richardson

“I feel privileged to have been chosen as one of this years’ 30 Under 30 winners. The competition was really tough this year, so to have been selected amongst so many other amazing entrants feels very rewarding. It was also a great opportunity for me to reflect back on my achievements and think about where I’m heading next.”

Nick James

“It’s such an honour to be named as one of this years’ Media Week 30 under 30 winners. Being recognized as a 'rising star' by industry peers amongst a number of incredible entrants is both humbling and incredibly rewarding. It was a great opportunity to look at my career to date, the impact of the work that I have done for clients and start to consider what’s next.”

Steve Buchanan, CEO, iProspect North

“As you can imagine, the competition is fierce and the final 30 are there because the judges recognise them as truly exceptional talents. 

We are incredibly proud of Laura and Nick’s achievement and it helps demonstrate the incredible talent we have in our business. We look forward to following their future successes and seeing how they influence the fantastic teams around them.”

Congratulations on your success, Laura and Nick!
