Managing Director & Sector Lead for Media, Entertainment & Digital EMEA
With a career spanning both executive search and advertising, Grant brings significant experience from the world of consumer media and content where he has worked with some of the world's biggest companies to build their senior teams. These are sectors that were disrupted early on by digital, so he has also developed expertise in advising organisations across all sectors on how to navigate the leadership challenges and opportunities of digital transformation.
Before joining Korn Ferry, Grant worked at a global search and leadership advisory firm where he led the U.K. TMT (Technology, Media and Telecommunications) and EMEA Digital Transformation Practices. Prior to working in executive search, he spent 25 years in the advertising industry, latterly as CEO of Publicis Groupe's U.K. operation.
Grant is the author of Looking Beyond the Car in Front, which guides both senior and mid-career business executives in taking a more assertive and strategic longer-term approach to career choices.
Grant is a Patron of the Royal Television Society and Fellow of both the Marketing Society and the Institute of Practitioners in Advertising.
Grant holds an MA from St Andrew's University and is a graduate of the INSEAD Advanced Management Programme.
