Laura Marshall, Managing Director

After leaving school I spent a year in Paris working for Henri and Martine Cartier-Bresson and on return went to work for the Toby Eady Literary Agency and the author and scientist Iain Douglas Hamilton.  In 1986 I got my first job in TV working for Roger Graef, of Films of Record.  I then spent two years at the Murray Pollinger Literary Agency.  In 1990 Harry and I decided we would try and work together. We’re still here.

 As Managing Director of Icon Films, I am responsible for the overall strategy of the company, personnel development and oversee marketing. 

 I am passionate about Bristol as a centre of creativity, commerce, innovation and cooperation – and am heavily involved with Wildscreen, Bristol Media.  I am privileged to be the current Chair of Bristol Old Vic and have been recently elected to the Society of Merchant Venturers.

When I’m not at my desk at work I can usually be found in my kitchen, where I love to cook, dance and sing – some of those are skills greater than others.
