Lorna Profile

Lorna Denholm

Talent Agent

Working in the Agency team, Lorna handles a book of 26 agency clients and also assist's Penny and Leighton with their clients.

Lorna is an expert at getting to know the creatives on our books so well that she can go straight to the two or three best candidates when a fast-turnaround brief comes in. 

She understands creatives herself, coming to The Pond with a Bachelor of Design in Graphic Design under her belt and a previous stint in the fashion industry. Working for the web stores of well-loved New Zealand labels as their sole point of contact and managing a retail store in central London helped her realise how much she enjoys creating relationships. 

"The Pond is built on more than just providing premium talent to the market: it’s our professional, personal service that really sets us apart,” says Lorna.

“We build great relationships with our clients so we understand their business and we know their culture. So when we talk through a brief with them, we can recommend just two or three creatives with complete confidence that they will be a great fit in terms of experience, rates, and culture. 

“Plus we really look after our creative, digital, and marketing talent by getting them awesome projects to work on, providing timely advice, and pushing their careers where they need to go.”

When not working, Lorna loves finding new places to eat or drink, traveling, taking photos, and improving her sewing skills.

For quick and attentive service that will nail your creative, digital, or marketing brief, talk to Lorna.
