Ben Whattam

Founding Partner, COO

In collaboration with Keko Group’s CEO, Brigitte Kemper, Ben sets the strategic direction for the agency across all offices and clients. Working with the teams in London, Germany, Dubai, Washington DC and Singapore, he oversees every aspect of the business across brand, product & service, and personnel strategies. Ben 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 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 joined Keko London – first as Managing Partner and now as COO.

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

Lauren joined Keko in June 2021 as an intern, working across Forevermark and Moët & Chandon before securing the role of Account Executive on Porsche GB and Triumph.

She studied History and Russian at the University of Exeter, cementing her love of the Russian language and culture by living in St Petersburg for a year. She gained experience in marketing whilst at university, joining 180 Degrees Consulting Exeter as the Marketing Director, a multiple award-winning student consultancy which she still sits on the board of.

When she’s not busy with banners, Lauren can be found playing sweet music on her beloved piano, scouring Depop for fashion finds (or flogging her own), or spotting the Made in Chelsea cast in Parsons Green.

Walter Gregory

Junior Designer

Walter joined Keko London in December 2021 as a Junior Designer. He works across multiple clients with a particular focus on Bentley and DeBeers Forevermark.

After graduating from the University of Leeds, he gained creative experience in both branding and advertising, in addition to working in Shelter UK’s design team.

He loves to find creative solutions to challenging design problems, while keeping a friendly, positive and approachable attitude.

Walt divides his time equally between Keko and his other full-time job – managing his failing fantasy football team (both as demanding as each other). Outside of work, he catches up with friends either on the golf course or at the pub – depending on the weather.

Yun-Chen Wu

Data Analyst

Yun-Chen joined Keko in January 2022 as a Data Analyst, working across Electrify America and Bentley.

She came to London in 2017 to study Business at Northumbria University, and went on to receive a Master’s degree in International Marketing at Newcastle University. During this time, she gained extensive experience in digital marketing – where she found her love for data.

Originally from Taiwan – an island full of food – she loves gathering data for must-visit-restaurants. And when she’s not out and about, you can catch her proposing PowerPoints for her next trip… or her next dog.

Douglas Bowen

Junior Copywriter

Known to his family as Douglas (said with a Geordie accent), you can call him Doug (said with your own accent). A Copywriter who knew life as an advertising creative was for him, so much so he studied Creative Advertising at uni.

Starting off with a busy first few years in the industry, Doug has given a voice to all sorts of brands – from whisky and wine to cars and canoes. Just before joining us here at Keko, he was part of the in-house creative team at the world’s largest sporting goods retailer, crafting copy for pretty much every sport you can imagine.

When he’s not putting his writing talents to use for brands, Doug can be found doodling comics as an outlet for the puns he’s not allowed to put in client work.

Elena Sánchez Abrante

Art Director

After studying Advertising, she moved to Barcelona to focus on developing her passion for design and art direction.

Prior to Keko London, she worked at LOLA MullenLowe Barcelona as a Creative Art Director, gaining valuable experience across film, print, OOH, and digital campaigns.
