Citi promotes Jennifer Lowney to global head of communications, part of an overall reorganization of the company’s global public affairs division.
Lowney joined Citi in 2014 as head of corporate communications, taking on the title of head of business and corporate communications in 2020. Before coming to the company, she was a partner at Brunswick Group and a vice president at Hill + Knowlton.
In her new post, Lowney adds responsibility for regional communications to her remit. Richard Tesvich in APAC, Jeff French in EMEA and Dan Diaz in LATAM and their teams all report to her.
Citi executive vice president, global public affairs Edward Skyler calls Lowney “an outstanding communications strategist with excellent media management and messaging skills, across traditional and digital channels.”
Her promotion comes as the company moves Citi Realty Services, Resource and Location Strategy and Net Zero Operations under the global public affairs umbrella. Head of change management Chris Hayward will now oversee the GPA unit.
