Georgie Gold, Cognito

Cognito adds three to its London team

Cognito has expanded its London team by appointing Benjamin Thiele-Long and Ketna Mistry as account directors and Georgie Gold as its new account manager.

Thiele-Long will be responsible for directing strategic communications on a variety of clients, as well as new business development.

He joins Cognito from Infinite Global and was previously responsible for PR and comms at King & Wood Mallesons. He has also been a regulatory and criminal barrister.

Mistry will boost Cognito’s integrated offering as its associate director of digital and social. She was previously global head of social media at S&P Global, where she led and aligned the firm’s corporate social media strategy.

Before joining Cognito, Gold developed and implemented multi-channel comms campaigns at Hume Brophy. She focussed on content generation and media relations for a range of clients, including asset managers, fintech firms and financial solutions providers.

Vivienne Hsu, Cognito’s EMEA managing director, said: “We are delighted to be welcoming Benjamin, Ketna and Georgie to the London team. They bring with them deep sectoral and channel expertise across media relations, marketing, branding, digital and social that will further enhance Cognito’s comprehensive offering.”
