We need a strategic thinker. We need a skilled planner. We need an improviser who knows that ambiguity and changing priorities are common. We need a team player. We need an optimist. We are hiring a talented and results-driven client director with deep and broad experience in the tech sector (from start-ups to blue chips, consumer to B2B). 

So, what does it take?

About us…

Landor builds some of the world’s most agile brands – brands that thrive on change. Landor’s branding services include strategy and positioning, identity and design, brand architecture, prototyping, innovation, naming and verbal identity, insights and analytics, environments and experiences, engagement, activation, and interactive.

The role…

We exist to help brands compete in an ever-changing and highly competitive world. To do our work effectively, we must have the highest standards and the most efficient practices. This is where client directors come in. They establish, build and maintain key relationships. They help drive and manage their clients’ brands and are accountable for the delivery of world-class brand-led business transformation.

What we are looking for…

Over the last 10 years, candidates will have flawlessly executed and managed technology-based brands, developed teams, and grown existing and new clients – all via client services excellence and at the highest levels of client satisfaction. As a consummate professional in all they do/say/write, candidates have brought gravitas to all situations – internally and externally and collaborated seamlessly with other functions in the office and the region, including strategy, design, naming and verbal identity, research, activation, and brand engagement.  As a client lead, they have steered and inspired a team of people, and, along with that team, ensured that all projects are delivered on time, on budget, and on scope. They have driven new business initiatives and pursuits, in partnership with other directors, including qualifying leads, developing proposals, and organizing and leading the pitch process through to the win. In the technology space specifically, they have created strategic thought leadership (in speaking and publishing forms), networked with potential clients, and developed targeted outreach plans.

Candidates must demonstrate the ability to interact with clients and senior management on all levels, including the C-suite. And they must possess strong communication, negotiation, presentation and organizational skills, supervisory experience, deep passion for brands and branding, and experience facilitating or leading marketing/brand management teams.
