AE or SAE - Professional Services -NYC
This is an opportunity to support integrated marketing activities for several different programs within a very large professional services account, at one of the country's best agencies to work for. The work includes strategic planning and content creation initiatives, helping to develop both traditional and social media relations strategy, and assisting in mentoring and training junior staff members. Candidates will also be expected to take ownership of and lead projects from start to finish, managing all client correspondence with the account driver’s oversight.
