Ben Whattam

Managing Partner

Ben combines his Managing Partner duties with a keen interest in the agency’s strategic thinking. He is a great believer that consumer-led insight is the key to unlocking standout work for clients. As a result, every piece of work produced by Keko London is informed by these insights, applied with a real-world sensitivity.

Ben’s career started at international consulting firm Foolproof working with clients in NYC, Vancouver, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Paris – which also gave him a global perspective on HNWIs. A move to JWT, the home of planning, saw him build global advertising strategies for Nokia, HSBC and Shell. His subsequent role at Imagination gave him valuable experience in the world of branding and design, before he set up Keko London in 2013.

When he’s not thinking about work, Ben is thinking (very occasionally) about keeping fit.
