With operations in 70 countries, including more than 100 offices and affiliates, Ketchum has doubled in size in the past five years and can now credibly compete alongside the top global agencies.

Ketchum Pleon London is leading the way, serving as a 'hub' to 18 of the agency's top 25 global clients.

During 2011 Ketchum bolstered its London team, bringing in three senior hires: Jo-Ann Robertson as MD public affairs and corporate from her role as Weber Shandwick's head of corporate and public affairs; Mo Lishomwa, former head of digital for Saatchi & Saatchi, as head of digital; and Daisy Wallace as content and broadcast consultant from The Television Consultancy.

It also made inroads into emerging markets, picking up briefs at the Qatar Foundation and Moroccan Tourist Board, and acquiring PR businesses in Russia, India and China. It also formed joint venture Ketchum Raad Middle East.

Other major wins included the US Farmers & Ranchers Alliance, Pfizer and Kimberly-Clark. PRWeek US awarded it Campaign of the Year for its work with Mattel's Barbie. The agency won PRWeek UK's International Consultancy of the Year in 2011.

The agency also offers £1m a year's worth of staff time to Room to Read and the World Economic Forum.
