He has worked across a number of industry sectors, including technology, media, telecoms, private equity, energy and infrastructure, and consumer industries.

In his new role at The PR Office, Cohen will work with co-MD Laura Moss and chairman Shimon Cohen to run day-to-day operations, develop new business and help accelerate the growth of the agency.

Shimon Cohen said: “Marc brings a wealth of experience and his appointment is a significant step in the agency’s growth. Working alongside myself and fellow MD Laura Moss, 2017 is set to be an extremely exciting year for The PR Office.”

Marc Cohen added: “The PR Office is one of London’s most dynamic, forward-looking and entrepreneurial agencies, and I am delighted to be part of the senior team. The breadth of client work, zero bureaucracy and creative approach to servicing clients and winning business is a breath of fresh air. We have big plans.”
