Agent MD Paul Corcoran Named in 100 Most Influential in British Digital and Media Industry

Paul Corcoran, Managing Director of Liverpool based Agent, has been named in the 100 most influential players in digital and media industry by the British Interactive Media Association (BIMA). The announcement is further national recognition for Paul’s work and comes hot on the heels of him being named as Sustainable Business Leader of the Year by The Guardian in 2016.

The BIMA 100 were chosen by a panel of industry experts chaired by Larence Weber, Managing Partner Innovation at Karmarama and Nadya Powell Founder of Innovation Disorder and member of the BIMA Executive Board.

Founded in 1895, BIMA is one of the most widely respected names in the digital industry and the flagship award ceremony is now in its 33rd year. Huyton born Paul will take his place amongst the BIMA 100 at an exclusive invitation-only celebration at Ham Yard Hotel in central London on the evening of the 9th May.

Paul has been at the helm of Agent, a full-service marketing agency, since it was established in 2006. The company is based in the Baltic Triangle and was the first tenant of Baltic Creative, home to the fastest growing creative and digital community in the country.

Alongside his work with Agent, Paul also sits on a number of boards including Liverpool Everyman and Playhouse, Rare Studio, The Big Trust and the Liverpool Enterprise Partnership’s digital and creative advisory board, helping to cultivate the digital and creative industry in Liverpool.

Paul’s commitment to Liverpool City Region drove him to set up Agent Academy CIC, a social enterprise dedicated to helping young people find gainful employment through a meaningful industry-led programme. To date, Agent Academy has a success rate of over 90% which continues to increase and has generated over £1 million worth of salaries across Liverpool City Region.

Speaking about his nomination to the BIMA 100, Paul said:

“This nomination caps off an incredible 12 months, both for Agent and myself personally. We’ve had lots of success but we’re not complacent and always look for ways to improve. I’m really excited about the projects we’re working on and, with so much happening around Liverpool at the moment, it feels like there’s even more to look forward to in future. Already 2017 has seen us add national brands to our portfolio and allowed us to enhance our digital and creative offerings.”
