Yvonne Maher is joining the London team of Cognito, the financial communications and marketing consultancy firm, as a director for its EMEA business.
She will be responsible for diversifying Cognito’s client base and contributing towards its continued growth in the EMEA region.
Formerly a director at Grayling, Maher specialises in corporate communications and international PR for clients in the financial services, professional services and energy sectors.
Andrew Marshall, deputy CEO and MD EMEA at Cognito, said: “Yvonne’s knowledge and international experience will be invaluable as we look to grow our global presence and further enhance our offering and services.”
Maher added: “Cognito truly lives and breathes integrated communications, delivering compelling campaigns and measurable results for its clients. I was immediately struck by its dynamic and progressive approach and look forward to working with its clients and contributing to the future success of the company.”
In order to accommodate its growing team, Cognito’s London team plans to move to a new Moorgate office at the beginning of next month. Cognito also has offices in New York, Los Angeles and Singapore.
