Bringing authentic brands
to the world
Moved by a common passion for exclusive brands and their creators, Antoine and Abla launched Be Keen in 2012 to break the rules of the Luxury industry and tell the story behind those unique genuine brands.
Our mission is to help our partner brands overcome the challenges that come with international expansion and achieve great success in a highly competitive environment in line with our values and business ethics.
To do so, we brought together our in-depth knowledge of the Luxury business and our complementary skills – a clear strategic vision, operational excellence and deep understanding of the channels’ complexities.
Be Keen evolves around three core values : authenticity, excellence and passion.
The company operates according to the founders’ strong beliefs:
-sustainable and controlled growth over rapid and unrestrained expansion to drive long-term success and partnerships
-creating genuine human connections with their partners to drive business performance
-being personally involved in overseeing the success of the brands in every market
Be Keen is first and foremost a human adventure between creators, retailers and our team members.
Bold, passionate and from diverse cultural backgrounds, our growing team is highly experienced in its field of expertise and can adapt easily to all international and multicultural environments.
