LONDON—Cohn & Wolfe has promoted Geoff Beattie to its global board and named him to lead C&W Consultancy, a new client offering that brings together the agency’s top international talent to provide strategic communications advice and support. Beattie was previously Cohn & Wolfe’s managing director in the United Kingdom.
The initial focus of C&W Consultancy will be on sustainability, an issue that has moved to the top of the corporate agenda in recent years and one in which communications plays a critical role. C&W Consultancy will also offer a management communications training program, and other fields of expertise and services will be rolled out in 2008.
Beattie will remain based in the Cohn & Wolfe London office where he will continue to develop senior-level client relationships.
