  3. Board Director, Asset Management

Board Director, Asset Management

We are looking to expand our existing senior team and our unrivalled track record of results with top names in the asset management and financial services sector.
"Lansons has weathered COVID better than we expected, growing revenue in our financial year to the end of March 2021. This is largely based on our deep reputation management experience and positioning as an agency that lives ESG, and always has. We’re looking to invest in our senior teams in London and New York as we grow into the coming decade. In key areas we’re looking for entrepreneurial senior consultants who can attract, convert and manage significant accounts. We’d say our culture is unique, but so would many others, but what is unique is our commitment to offer ownership stakes in the business to our future leaders."
