After graduating from Kingston University in 2005 with a BA in Business Studies, Gurman began his career at the pan European ad network Adlink Internet Media, where he had completed a placement as part of his degree.
There, he launched the company's performance division just six months after joining the organization, and honed his expertise in ad tech, analysis, and optimization. Gurman subsequently led the establishment of online ad network A&NY Media for publisher group Associated Northcliffe Media.
Seeing both opportunity and demand for more transparent models in real-time advertising, Gurman co-founded MiQ in 2010. Under his leadership as CEO, MiQ has maintained a 95% employee retention rate, more than twice the industry average.
In 2017, Gurman was named the winner of a Gold Stevie Award in the Executive of the Year in the Advertising, Marketing & Public Relations category at the 15th Annual American Business Awards. Gurman speaks regularly with Kingston students on the benefits of studying a placement year and is a passionate advocate for improving social mobility and access to education.
