Founder & CEO Of Shopper, Ben Walker, Passes Away Aged 47

Retail out-of-home provider Shopper is saddened to report that CEO and founder Ben Walker passed away peacefully in his sleep on Saturday, 15 January at the age of 47.

“Ben was a larger-than-life character and an exceptional leader – but above all, he was an extraordinary human being,” says Shopper chairman David Morgan.

“Ben was passionate about the retail media industry, his clients and his Shopper colleagues, who he regarded as his family.

“Ben founded Shopper in 2015 with co-founder and friend Ed Couche.  As a charismatic and visionary leader, Ben built the company with a focus on innovation and people, who he always put first, creating a culture of loyalty and commitment, of which he was very proud. He will be sadly missed by all who worked with him.

“Our thoughts are with his wife Lisa, and two boys during this incredibly difficult time. Those close to him knew that Ben viewed his role as a father and family man as his most important job.”
