Account Manager for Design and Branding Agency focused on Luxury Clients
Our client is a small (25 person), highly profitable branding, design and advertising agency that focuses on luxury and high end brands targeted to exclusive and discerning consumers. Their office is a stunning penthouse loft in downtown Manhattan.
The founder runs the company, and also serves as its Executive Creative Director, and while he demands a high level of quality for all the work done by the company (which bears his name), he also has created a culture of collegial people working together and sharing his drive for excellence and stunning creative. In his own words, we excite markets and captivate the most sophisticated audiences. The company makes good use of the penthouse roof terrace, and there are a number of events throughout the year (particularly in warmer weather) in which good food and drink play a key role…
The company is very financially stable (and growing) and offers benefits that are superior to most privately held companies of its size.
