Work Inc. Puts Austin in Charge Of Daily Operations

Work Inc. has named Rob Austin chief administrative officer.

Austin will oversee the account management, account planning and public relations departments at the Richmond, Va., shop.

“As Work evolves, it is clear we need someone of Rob’s caliber and experience to oversee the company’s day-to-day functions,” said agency president Cabell Harris. “This allows our creative team to do what it does best.”

Austin, formerly president and chief operating officer at Pollak, Levitt & Partners here, arrived in Richmond last February, after PL&P was absorbed into Trone Atlanta. He previously served as vice president and account planner at The Martin Agency in Richmond.
