About the Team:

Our Media Solutions group is responsible for leading pre-sale by crafting media plans, brainstorming marketing strategies, developing strong client relationships, and creating programs for key clients. This typically begins at the receipt of the RFP but can also include proactive outreach to new and preferred clients. Strategists are responsible for providing clients with spec sheets, placement details, and assest needs. Strategists are also responsible for routing paperwork internally and working closely with our Ad Operations, Finance and Legal departments to ensure all details of a sold program are communicated internally.

Media Solutions works closely with Sales, and our in-house product marketing teams to ensure each proposal is unique for our clients and more importantly, will support our mission to empower Millennial Women.
