Cohn & Wolfe names Ruth Allchurch as consumer MD

Cohn & Wolfe has appointed Ruth Allchurch as managing director of its consumer brand business in the UK.

Reporting to Rebecca Grant, Cohn & Wolfe’s managing director UK, she will take on commercial and creative responsibility for the practice.

Allchurch joins Cohn & Wolfe from Cirkle, where she was managing director and oversaw both commercial and client development. Ruth Kieran has just been announced as Cirkle’s MD.

Prior to Cirkle, Allchurch spent eight years at Diageo. She left as head of brand PR for Western Europe and led the brand strategy for its core brands across 14 countries. She is also chairman of the PRCA Consumer Group.

“I am thrilled to be joining Cohn & Wolfe,” Allchurch said. “I have fond memories of working there a few moons ago when I cut my teeth on big FMCG, retail and consumer healthcare brands.”

She added: “I have watched with great interest and admiration the stunning performance that Scott, Rebecca and the UK team have delivered within a challenging marketplace.”

Grant continued: “I am delighted to welcome Ruth to the agency. She is a fantastic hire – a powerhouse of energy, combined with a wealth of experience from her time both client-side and within agencies. Plus, we have a shared passion for unrelenting client service excellence.”
