LONDON: Mark Cater, former New York president of Cohn & Wolfe, has joined MHP Communications as MD, effective next month.
Cater, who will be based in the firm's London office, will be responsible for its expansion into emerging markets. He will report to Gavin Devine, CEO of MHP.
Cater left Cohn & Wolfe in July to return to the UK for personal matters, said CMO Jill Tannenbaum. He had served as the firm's New York president since November 2010.
Cohn & Wolfe has not yet hired a replacement for Cater. Michael Bayer, deputy MD of the New York office, is handling his responsibilities.
