Cohn & Wolfe has promoted its UK consumer marketing MD, Rebecca Grant, to head up the London-based WPP-owned agency as UK MD.
Grant, who joined Cohn & Wolfe in 2011, will retain her role as head of Cohn & Wolfe Consumer Marketing EMEA, and will continue to report to Scott Wilson, UK CEO and EMEA MD.
She will also continue to serve a number of clients, including Pfizer, Twinings, Danone and Treasury Wine Estates.
Wilson said: “Our UK Consumer Marketing business has been on fire, with revenue tripling over the last four years. It has won a host of new globally-recognised brands and received industry award recognition both as a team and for the quality of their work.
“During this period, Rebecca has been at the forefront of driving our wider agency transformation, and much of our success has been founded on a commitment to placing collaboration, creativity and digital at the heart of everything we do. Rebecca’s appointment is richly deserved and I look forward to working closely with her as Cohn & Wolfe continues its success in the coming years.”
Grant said: “Cohn & Wolfe’s reputation in the UK is growing exponentially and I am delighted to have played my part in the agency’s wider success. What is particularly gratifying is the growing number of clients – from consumer healthcare to food and drink to consumer technology to financial services – who have bought into our philosophy and are increasingly looking to Cohn & Wolfe to be a true custodian of their brands, from promotion to protection.”
Before joining Cohn & Wolfe in 2011, Grant worked at Weber Shandwick and the Red Consultancy.
Apparently, a new MD for Cohn & Wolfe UK Consumer Marketing has already been appointed and will join the agency in March.
