During his six years at FTI’s strategic communications division, Cohen worked across a variety of sectors including private equity, retail, leisure and consumer industries, handling high profile M&A, IPOs and corporate restructurings.

Prior to FTI Consulting, Cohen was at Bankside Consultants and before that at Deloitte where he started out his career in tax advisory and corporate finance.

London managing partner Gunilla Banér said Cohen would lead the London business’ growing consumer and private equity offer, serving clients in the UK and internationally.

‘Marc is a key addition to our 400-strong global team and will play a central role in growing our practice here in London,’ she said.

Cohen has also worked across a broader range of comms disciplines, including crisis comms, issues management and political work.

The hire is part of a transformation of the London team of KGA.

Kreab Gavin Anderson is undergoing a transformation after the loss of around ten London-based partners in recent months, including the agency's former London leadership team.

Since Baner took over as managing partner in London in October KGA has hired former FSA board member Chris Pond as head of public affairs, Matthew Jervois, as head of the financial services team and Chris Philipsborn as head of the energy practice.
