We’ve got clients. A lot of them. And we plan on acquiring more. A lot more. Which is why we need an Agency Account Executive to support the team here at 2e.
We need natural-born leaders. Passionate people-persons. Eloquent speakers and thoughtful listeners. We need someone who can easily navigate difficult conversations and won’t back down in the face of adversity. Someone with that rare mixture of poise and drive. There’s someone out there who has exactly the uniqueness that flows out of the doors of 2e. And we want that someone on our side.
The ideal fit for this role interfaces with various agency departments to move projects through the 2e strategic and creative development/execution process. This is someone with exceptional organizational and leadership skills, as this role is responsible for mentoring Account Coordinators. Account Executives are crucial liaisons between Creative and Interactive/Digital teams, production resources, and the client. Our shared goal is to deliver show-stopping work for our clients. We expect all 2e’ers to be professional, approachable, and active listeners. We listen to our clients. We listen to each other. And if you’re seeing yourself in this description, we want to listen to you.
