NEW YORK, November 20, 2023 — One Strategy Group, a next-generation corporate strategy firm that advises C-suite leaders and growth-focused companies, today announced that industry leader Sophie Coblence has joined as an Executive Vice President. This is the latest in a series of significant hires that continue to position the firm as a challenger to the legacy communications and public affairs agencies.
Coblence brings tremendous industry experience to One Strategy Group. Most recently, she was the Initiative Lead at Economist Impact, part of The Economist Group, overseeing The Sustainability Project and World Ocean Initiative. At BCW, a top three global PR agency working in London and New York, Sophie led one of the firm's top 10 clients in North America, growing the business by 250 percent.
"Sophie is a huge addition to our team," said David Meadvin, CEO of One Strategy Group. "She has incredibly varied and senior-level experience advising global companies and CEOs through high-stakes situations. Bringing Sophie to One Strategy Group is another example of our investment in building a world-class team to help leaders succeed in an incredibly dynamic and complex business climate.”
“I am delighted to be joining David and the team at this exciting moment of growth and expansion,” said Coblence. “I look forward to bringing my experience to the table and helping to shape the future of our business.”
Coblence is an executive coach, having completed her training with the Columbia University Coaching Certification Program at Teachers’ College. Her expertise spans all industries with a particular interest in intercultural communication, the practice of effectively communicating across different cultures (whether nationality, gender, or ethnicity) so that teams recognize and respect the differences leading to a mutual exchange of ideas and adaptation. Sophie is a Fellow of the Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufacturers and Commerce.
