Ken Cohen has incredibly broad communications oversight for the number-two company on the Fortune 500. And with gas prices on everyone's mind, he occupies the global stage like few communicators do.
He's proven quite comfortable in that position. From ExxonMobil's "Perspectives" blog, which he played a significant role in creating, to BigGovernment.com's Coffee and Markets podcast, Cohen is a willing engager with the press and public. Everyone wants to know why gas prices are so high; the pros and cons of fracking; alternative energy sources; and more. All complex issues Cohen can turn into understandable answers.
Cohen also serves as chairman of the ExxonMobil Foundation, the company's primary philanthropic arm.
