Current Global announces the promotion of Renee Austin to the role of Global Chief Client and Growth Officer, and the appointment of Demar Anderson to Executive Vice President of Marketing and Business Development. These strategic moves mark a pivotal moment in the agency’s efforts to elevate its standing as a premier global midsize agency and drive significant portfolio growth. Both executives will report directly to Current Global CEO Virginia Devlin.

In Austin’s expanded role, she will collaborate across practices, talent communities and geographies, leveraging her extensive experience to drive growth. Additionally, she will serve as a senior counselor on marquee accounts, actively pursue large-scale new business opportunities, and reinforce the agency’s commitment to client satisfaction and retention. Austin will also play a crucial role in mentoring integrated teams, developing new offerings, and crafting a centralized strategy for exceptional client service while nurturing the next generation of agency leaders.

“Renee has played a pivotal role in the growth of Current Global, from building our corporate practice from the ground up to serving as our North America president,” said Devlin. “She has consistently demonstrated forward thinking and a profound commitment to the agency, its culture, our people, and our clients – serving as a trusted partner to C-suite executives and mentoring many colleagues.”

In tandem with Austin’s promotion, Anderson assumes her role as a key member of the executive leadership team, collaborating closely with Austin and other leaders to drive strategic alignment between the agency’s marketing and new business endeavors. Anderson’s remit is to support the agency’s overarching vision, diversify its client base, introduce new service offerings, and accelerate growth across practices and sectors. In this new position, Anderson will play a critical role in elevating the agency’s marketing, solidifying its reputation as a premier global midsize firm, and facilitating new business opportunities across its diverse portfolio.

“We are thrilled to welcome Demar to our leadership team. She brings a wealth of experience and a well-established network, which will play a pivotal role in refining our business development processes and sparking meaningful connections that drive business growth, while also positioning our agency and leadership team at the forefront of the global midsize landscape,” commented Devlin.
