CHICAGO—Cohn & Wolfe, which closed its Chicago office three years ago as part of a nationwide restructuring, is returning to the city and has named Sherri Jaffe as executive vice president and managing director of the agency’s new office. Jaffe will be responsible for spearheading the expansion of the healthcare and consumer practices in Chicago.
“The re-emergence of a Cohn & Wolfe office in Chicago underscores our commitment to securing the best talent in the industry,” says Donna Imperato, president and CEO. “At the same time, it gave us the opportunity to expand our worldwide network of offices to the Chicago area. Her first-rate knowledge of pharmaceutical marketing, crisis communications and public relations strategy and ability to grow new business makes Sherri a strong addition to our senior executive team.”
Jaffe, a C&W veteran with 14 years of pharmaceutical and marketing experience, rejoins the agency from TAP Pharmaceutical Products where she served as group marketing manager. During her previous tenure at C&W, Jaffe helped build the U.S. healthcare practice and managed public relations programs for a variety of clients, including GlaxoSmithKline, Pfizer and Conceptus. Before joining C&W in 1999, Jaffe spent nine years at Pfizer acting as product manager for Zoloft.
