I am Ben Bilboul, I was a Founding Partner and CEO of Karmarama, one of the UK’s leading creative agencies. In 2011, we scaled the business with the support of Phoenix Equity Partners, who backed our organic growth and buy & build value creation plan. In 2016, we were acquired by Accenture in a market leading deal, and I was asked to lead Accenture Interactive’s UKI creative agencies, as well as their acquisition strategy. This business unit ultimately became Accenture Song, the largest digital agency in the world. In 2022, I stepped down from my role to pursue new interests.
With PepTalks members I will be sharing my experiences of: launching, scaling, selling and then integrating a business into a trade buyer.
