NEW YORK — Edelman has named its global consumer chair Jennifer Cohan as president of its New York office as Russell Dubner transitions to the role of US president and CEO.

Cohan will take the reins of Edelman’s largest office at the start of its new fiscal year on July 1, reporting into Dubner. The 800-person New York office takes in more than $139 million in revenue. 

A search is currently underway for Cohan’s successor who will lead Edelman’s global consumer marketing practice, which now represents 25% of the firms global revenue and has 1,000 people working within the practice. Her tenure involved active engagements with clients like Unilever and Tupperware, as well as leading Edelman’s “brandshare” global consumer study.

Before joining Edelman last January, Cohan was managing director at GolinHarris based in New York.
