Account work can also include content strategy, creation and distribution, social management and strategy, as well as data-driven reporting & analysis.

Senior Account Executives are viewed by our day-to-day client contacts as part of their internal team and are the most knowledgeable on the media landscape and competitor performance as it relates to each of their clients. Widely recognized internally as media / influencer pitch-masters, capable of building and maintaining media relationships at the highest level. They are comfortable, calm and confident in all stressful client situations.

In addition to daily responsibilities, high performing SAE’s looking to grow into an Account Supervisor role, typically carve out an expertise that is sought out by other team members (vertical knowledge, service mastery, reporting guru, etc). Client work and driving results is where SAE’s live and thrive.
