Jennifer Swint is leaving the global president post at Porter Novelli on Oct. 31, according to an internal note from CEO Brad MacAfee.

The post is being eliminated as PN transitions to a "global purpose communications consultancy" model.

MacAfee noted he had several discussions with Swint over the past few months and they agreed that her job should be scrubbed as part of PN's "evolution and considering the size and scale of the agency."

The goal of the global president, according to MacAfee, was "to drive growth among our top clients and oversee the key strategic priorities as we evolve to become a purpose communications consultancy."

MacAfee believes Margaret-Ann Cole, executive VP-global talent leader, has the organizational design & change management savvy to oversee the new consultancy model in conjunction with the Omnicom unit's executive committee.

Client relationship leaders will continue to be responsible for sparking organic growth.
