We are always looking to grow and better our business – and the Account Management team is the catalyst for that growth. Our focus is on building the client’s business, the account relationship and the expertise of our team. That means spotting game-changing ideas to grow our client’s business and solve challenges. Selling ideas fearlessly and confidently. And keeping things simple, organized and clear – even in the most complex situations – so that we can make great work. 

Group Account Director - Melbourne 

We believe you are a business partner with strategic understanding of the client’s brand, its business, consumers and what’s next.

You are in your element walking the halls at the client, knowing them personally and frequently interacting with key stakeholders, understanding any issues and being able to turn them into tangible briefs or to proactively come back and inspire them. You are responsible for managing multiple lines of business within a single client relationship or managing multiple clients through the ability to understand client marketing and business objectives and develop high-level strategic plans. Driving strategic plans and objectives for clients within the agency and monitoring efforts to ensure adherence to timelines and budgets is essential. Managing internal resource allocation and costs towards profitability will also be part of your responsibility. At all times you support the company’s financial goals by growing accounts and nurturing new relationships.

You are confident, empathetic, and can easily present and workshop with clients. You know your course-adjust depending on audience’s level of marketing or advertising nous. You are one the most respected client service person within the agency because of your way of leading people and clients as well as balance our clients’ needs with our agencies agenda to become an integrated marketing expert.
