Paul Cohen, a 17-year veteran of Ketchum, has signed on at Milk & Honey PR as the UK-based shop expands to the US.
Based in New York, Cohen takes the CEO North America title.
Kirsty Leighton, who launched Milk & Honey in 2017, said clients and prospects were increasingly asking for PR support in the US.
She cited Cohen’s extensive experience in the US and said he has “a thoughtful, intellectual approach to PR that is rare for our industry.”
Cohen exited Ketchum in 2020 as partner/managing director of its energy & industry practice in New York. He worked for the Omnicom unit in Shanghai, Hong Kong and Brussels.
Cohen, who also was PA director at Burson-Marsteller, joined Milk & Honey from Brooklyn-based Prospect Strategies Group.
