Randa Stephan, global head of marketing and brand at Weber Shandwick, is moving to Hill+Knowlton Strategies, where she will take the reins as the firm’s first dedicated chief marketing and communications officer on September 15.
Last year, Stephan led the launch of The Weber Shandwick Collective, which formalized the firm’s ecosystem of specialist agencies. She previously led the agency’s integrated digital group in New York.
Before coming to Weber, Stephan was executive director at the Wall Street Journal, where she headed up the launch of WSJ Custom Studios, the publisher’s integrated content marketing practice. She has worked in the advertising sector, holding account positions at Ogilvy & Mather and Saatchi & Saatchi.
At H+K Strategies, Stephan will be responsible for global corporate brand, marketing, and internal and external communications across the H+K network, reporting to global chairman and CEO AnnaMaria DeSalva.
“Randa is a brand transformation leader with deep expertise, and her creative energy and passion for results make her a very welcome addition to our leadership team,” said DeSalva.
