Jennifer Turner, Director & Managing Agent at Wren Artists, began her career in to artists management and representation at the age of 21. After graduating from Nottingham Trent University in 2008, with a BA Hons in Photography (2:1), Jennifer started her first position at photographic agency, Siobhan Squire. During the 4 years at the agency, Jennifer was responsible for the agencies biggest accounts including Apple & VW, and managed productions globally for the launch of the new VW Beetle in Europe, Asia & the Americas.
Her next step in agency life came when she moved across to a competitor agency, Making Pictures in 2012. A start-up agency at this time, established in 2011, Jennifer was appointed to build the agencies reputation amongst the London advertising market, and to launch the sister division to the agency MP Arts, representing illustrators and graphic artists. Once MP Arts had launched, Jennifer was headhunted in to advertising agency, McCann London as an Art Buyer, and headed up the Global account for Zurich Insurance and managed teams and productions in London, Zurich, LA & Miami.
Having built a solid base of experience working first off in an established agency, then moving in to a start-up company, and finally working ‘client side’, Jennifer left to build what is now Wren Agency. Bringing partner relationships from her previous positions, Wren Agency launched in 2015 with an impressive roster of leading photographers. The agency, now coming up to it’s 4th year, continues to grow with a roster of 8 artists, and is supported by a strong team of agents, producers and designers. Whilst building client relationships, Jennifer established the agency and photographers within the cultural world with exhibitions at The Photographers Gallery, Selfridges, and Great Eastern Wall Gallery (Village Underground, Shoreditch) leading to the opening of its sister company, Wren London. Wren London, is the most recent venture by Jennifer, opening it’s doors May 2018, a photographic gallery based in Old Street that continues to grows the Wren group.
