Account Executive

You

A motivated leader ready to manage and lead client relationships with confidence from beginning to end. Clients have confidence in your ability and your team loves how you motivate them. You are a steward of your clients’ brands, time, and budgets. You can ensure your internal teams stay focused on client goals and campaign objectives, while always keeping an eye on deadlines and scope. You instinctively learn every facet of a client’s business and are prepared to discuss goals, KPI’s and industry trends. You love to communicate, and you do it well. You are comfortable making decisions on your own, but humble enough to know when to ask for help or advice from your team. You are looking for a new opportunity for more client ownership experience and client development opportunities. Lastly, you want to work for a fun and collaborative agency where you can have immediate impact and can pave your own future.
