The Austin Company has promoted Jeff Deel to Vice President of Human Resources. Deel formerly served as Director of Human Resources and has dedicated more than 15 years to Austin, serving the last seven years on Austin’s executive leadership team.

“Jeff’s contribution has expanded as Austin has continued to grow. He is a valued member of the executive leadership team providing great support and counsel. He has clearly earned the opportunity to serve as an officer of the company and the position of Vice President. I congratulate him on his promotion and thank him for all his hard work,” said Mike Pierce, President of The Austin Company.
“My day-to-day tasks will not change significantly. However, I will be taking on greater responsibility for strategic planning, and as Austin continues to grow, so will the breadth of my role,” said Deel. “I look forward to the role we will all play in Austin’s success in the coming years.”
Deel continues to be responsible for all human resource functions, including talent acquisition, organizational development, performance management, coaching, succession planning, policy and procedure, compliance, benefits, employee relations, and compensation. His contribution to helping drive the company’s vision, identify, and initiatives to improve the organization’s operations will continue to expand.
