Meet the team


Lara Leventhal

I spent over 15 years running other people's agencies as MD and winning numerous agency and campaign awards. In 2016, a family event changed my life and I decided to launch my own business. But I wanted to launch a business with a difference, an agile and flexible business that tapped into the changing agency landscape and capitalised on the amazing, experienced and free spirited talent being locked out of an industry by agencies that wanted people to work in a specific way - and I know as I used to be one of those people. So, in 2017, Visible was born and I’ve never looked back. And as we continue to stick to our guiding principles we marvel at the brilliant clients we’ve had the pleasure to work with and the small and talented team we’ve got around us…
