  • Gavin Cooper, financial director, London
  • Kirsty Sachrajda, head of HR, Europe
  • Susan Smith, managing director, London consumer brand practice

  • Neil McLelland, managing director, Inspired Science (medical education agency)

Jamie Robertson joined the firm late last year, and has more than 14 years of experience in comms, latterly at The Communication Group and before that in a nine-year stint at FTI Consulting.

Jo-ann Robertson said: "These individuals are all passionate about the future of Ketchum and embody our vision, values and 'One London' approach. With the experience, skills and trusted counsel this group provides, we will together ensure Ketchum London’s continued success and growth."
