Mark Renshaw has assumed new responsibilities at Edelman, a public-relations company.
He is taking over for Jackie Cooper, who took on a new position in the company after three years of overseeing creative strategy as the global chair of creative strategy, according to The Holmes Report, an industry website.
Renshaw will work to enhance and improve creative and planning efforts in a variety of markets. He will also retain his previous duties as global brand practice chair. According to The Holmes Report, part of Renshaw's interim duties will include strengthening the talents in the company's creative and planning divisions in various markets and the company's global leadership.
In September 2016, Renshaw joined the company in Chicago, where he will continue to be remain based. In his time with the company, Renshaw has overseen a major study for the company (the Earned Brand study) and worked with clients like Heineken, Yum Brands, Nissan and others.
Renshaw told The Holmes Report that he wants to get people telling positive stories on behalf of the company's clients, because they have asked for more help in telling stories in an earned way, and this is one of his goals.
Before joining Edelman, Renshaw worked at Leo Burnett for 18 years.
