Creative Solutions Director
Time Out

I am really excited to be judging at this year’s awards. It is a real thrill to produce innovative campaigns that push the boundaries of convention to deliver results and I understand how satisfying it is to receive recognition for your efforts, especially when it comes from your peers. I hope to see result-driven campaigns which use unique approaches to solving problems which make them stand out from the crowd.

Kevin has won multiple awards throughout his 17 year career in cross platform media solutions.
