Our ideal PR Senior Account Executive has a minimum of four years’ PR experience and a bachelor's degree in communications, public relations or other relevant liberal arts degree. A background in wine/spirits PR is a must, an interest in fashion is welcome.

We are looking for someone who thrives in a collaborative team environment, who is also a self-starter and can work on projects independently. If you're a pro at account management, interacting with the media, and acting as a client liaison, this job is for you.

  • Establishing and delivering analytics reports based on mutually agreed upon metrics, proving our agency’s worth to executive leadership on a regular basis
  • Leading client calls with ease, confidence, and positivity
  • Assisting in coaching junior team members through projects and deliverables, sharing positive and constructive feedback
  • Completing projects on time and within budget
  • Collaborating with other departments – essential at our integrated agency
