Regent's welcomes Laurent-Perrier as part of Visiting Professorships series

Adam Guy, Managing Director at Laurent-Perrier UK, gave an entertaining talk on how following your passion can lead to a surprising career high

Last week Regent's hosted a senior leader from Laurent-Perrier as part of our unique Visiting Professorship events series. 

Adam Guy was already successful as a high-flying corporate lawyer at a “magic circle” law firm in the City of London when his true passion came to light: the world of fine wine.  

A conversation with a client who encouraged him to follow his passion prompted Adam to shift into commercial roles which ultimately led him into the luxury drinks sector where he is now Managing Director at Laurent-Perrier UK. 

At this event, students learned how his passion for fine wine led Adam to lead Laurent-Perrier's largest business unit – strengthening the brand, the financial performance, the team, and the culture including securing accreditation as a great place to work – and put him on the Walpole Power List of 50 most influential people in British luxury in 2023.
