A few key areas of focus include:
Build relationships that lead to a complete understanding of the client's needs and objectives
Approach each project as a unique challenge; be thoughtful and strategic when developing the plan to achieve success
Be diligent in the creative process: Author briefs, project scope and budget documentation; present them to the Creative Services team as the voice of the client
Enthusiastically lead the team through all aspects of the project from inception through completion; keep everyone excited and informed
Communicate effectively and regularly with leadership, the client and all team members involved with each project
Contribute ideas that lead to successes outside of your day-to-day responsibilities
A bachelor's degree in Marketing, Business, or a related field is preferred.
This role typically requires at least eight (8) years of related experience in advertising, marketing or communications agency to be considered.
We offer an inclusive compensation package for all full-time salaried employees including, but not limited to, annual bonus programs, health insurance benefits, a 401k program, onsite fitness centers and employee stores, employee discounts on products and accessories, and more.
