Keith Cocozza, who was executive VP of marketing & communications at WarnerMedia, has signed on as senior advisor at Chartwell Strategy Group.
The 19-year veteran of Time Warner exited WarnerMedia in August as part of new CEO Jason Kilar's plan to restructure the AT&T unit.
Cocozza, who runs Inwood Consulting, also worked in the New York City mayor’s office as legislative affairs director and was public information officer for Governor Mario Cuomo
“Keith and Brandon bring a proven track record of helping organizations navigate complex public affairs and corporate communications challenges,” said Matt Epperly, Chartwell co-founder.
Chartwell also recruited Democratic politico Brandon Brown, who was southern states director for Tim Ryan’s 2020 presidential run, and South Carolina deputy political director for Joe Biden’s 2007/2008 campaign, for senior advisor duty.
Brown also held institutional advancement posts at Jackson State University and Paine College, both HBCUs.
“Their experience as trusted advisors to C-suite executives and government leaders will provide tremendous value to our clients. Companies are increasingly seeking strategic counsel from battle-tested consultants who understand the intersection of business, public policy, and reputation management,” said Epperly.
