Stephen Cohen

Senior Managing Director

Stephen Cohen has spent the last 20 years advising companies and their leadership teams on a wide range of communications, public affairs and investor relations issues. At Teneo, he leads client engagements for some of the firm’s best-known clients and works across disciplines to help clients develop and execute reputation-focused programs that are aligned to business values and results.

During his tenure at Teneo, Stephen has advised on mergers and acquisitions valued at more than $100 billion, led activist and hostile-takeover defense, initial public offerings and crisis management, among other things. He has worked with clients spanning from financial services to gaming and entertainment to industrials, healthcare, wellness and technology, among others.

Prior to joining Teneo, Stephen was a Vice President in the Executive Office at Goldman Sachs, where he worked with the executive team on financial communications and rebuilding the firm’s reputation after the financial crisis. Previously, Stephen was a Senior Vice President in Citigroup’s corporate affairs department, where he worked closely with the bank’s senior leadership team in navigating the financial crisis, the failing financial performance of the industry, the U.S. government’s involvement and the reputational backlash of the Troubled Asset Relief Program.

Stephen began his career as a financial journalist. As a reporter at Bloomberg News, Stephen wrote about financial markets and the financial services industry. In this role, he wrote breaking news stories, as well as in-depth features and profiles for Bloomberg’s Markets Magazine.

Stephen holds a bachelor’s degree in journalism from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University. He is a member of the Newhouse44, the school’s alumni leadership group.

He lives in New York with his wife and two children.
