Emperor sits down with Sir Martin Sorrell

By Steve Kemp, Chief Executive Officer

As part of Emperor’s 25th year anniversary celebrations we will be holding a series of interviews with some of the leading names and creative visionaries in industry.

The first of these features a man who needs no introduction, communications titan Sir Martin Sorrell, Executive Chairman of S4 Capital. My colleague Cameron Gunn and I sat down to discuss just how the world and the communications industry has changed over the past quarter of a century; the rise, innovation and disruption of all things digital (indeed, back in 1996 Emperor’s digital presence was a note on our marketing assets that ‘we are on the internet’); and what he sees as the game-changers of the future. 

Keep your eyes peeled for future installments.

Emperor's first annual report

After 25 years as an independent agency, this report is an important milestone in improving our corporate and financial transparency. Not least, because in January 2020 we became an employee owned business and our annual report acts as a contract of trust between Emperor and our stakeholders.
