Paul Hammersley, the UK group chief executive of Cheil, said: "Cheil Health will provide transformational experiences by combining technology and creativity in this exciting and growing sector”.

The new company’s first client has been confirmed as start-up Map My Gut, a tool that allows health professionals to understand the microbial population of a person’s gut in order to provide nutritional and health advice while ultimately helping with diagnosis and treatment.

The start-up is expected to expand rapidly this year, with plans to launch an app and a product range, and Cheil Health will create the marketing strategy to launch it into market.

Wethepeople London will continue to operate as a standalone independent business, servicing its client base alongside Cheil Health clients.
