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.
