Cohen has worked across financial, corporate and political comms, providing PR advice for a range of companies and individuals, including start-ups, global leaders, high-net-worth individuals, governments and NGOs.

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

Recent projects have included Europe’s largest IPO post the financial crisis, crisis comms in Sierra Leone following the Ebola out-break, tackling the rise in European antisemitism, the global private equity transparency agenda and the Israeli start-up technology revolution.

In addition, Cohen has advised on a large number of  M&A transactions, IPOs, venture capital investments and debt restructurings.

He started his career at Deloitte before moving into comms with Bankside Communications and FTI consulting.

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.”
