Ketchum Pleon Düsseldorf’s forerunner was the successful public relations agency Kohtes & Klewes. Located in the heart of North Rhine-Westphalia’s business center, the erstwhile nucleus of today’s market leader benefits not only from being close to its clients - traditional family firms and DAX-listed companies - but also from the inspiring cultural variety of the Rhine and Ruhr region.
The location’s history dates back to 1988. Today, interdisciplinary teams of PR generalists and specialists advise clients from a range of industries, such as energy, retail, finance, IT, chemicals, and consumer goods.
One of the former founder of Kohtes & Klewes, Paul Kohtes, is still with the company as senior partner. Over 100 key account and project managers, staff writers, creative people, and digital media experts benefit from his presence.
Office head is Rüdiger Maeßen, Co-office head is Thorsten Sperlich.
