Account Supervisor - B2B tech - NYC PR Agency (one of the best)

I'm working with a terrific boutique B2B firm that's looking for an accomplished Account Supervisor to lead a small group of interesting accounts.

This is a growth opportunity for someone who can handle responsibility, counsel clients and manage staff.  In a smaller firm like this one (about 30 people) you are noticed more easily and the impact of your work is more obvious and appreciated more.  If you're looking for this kind of environment to work in, this is right for you.

The firm is growing in a steady and intelligent way, meaning more opportunity and security.

Great office space, good people to work with and an overall happy place to be.

We are looking for:
Love of technology
B2B experience in an agency setting (preferably a small to mid sized firm)
Good mentoring skills
Able to counsel clients and push back on what you know is right
Track record of media placements
