Laurence Phillips Client Director

Laurence has been working for full service and public relations agencies since 1997. Prior to this he began his career in his native South Wales as a marketing manager for a regional newspaper group.

He has devised and implemented across the board marketing and PR campaigns for a wide range of national and regional clients such as Wolverhampton & Dudley Breweries, Scottish & Newcastle, Barratt Homes and the Hilton hotel group.

Laurence also works closely with the team that is currently rolling out a chain of venues on behalf of Marco Pierre White, the original ‘enfant terrible’ and famed celebrity chef.

At Empica Laurence works across a broad range of clients which operate in a variety of business sectors – this includes the construction, build and property sectors with HBXL, Helm Construction, Crest Nicholson and Bruton Knowles as retained clients.

Keen on sports, Laurence helps coach at his local rugby club, loves skiing and surfing and cycles regularly.

He is also involved in an official ‘O2 Touch’ rugby centre which he helped set up 18 months ago and now boasts over 50 players every Friday night.

With two young boys and two chickens, he’s also kept on his toes at home!
