Account Executive

People call you “The Organizer” because you’re that person in the friend group who plans the trip, makes the reservations, ensures everybody has the right jacket, then takes a survey of who had the best time. You’re a planner, a doer and a relationship builder. When other people are happy, you’re happy. At Punch, the Account Director is the glue between the client and the creative team. Part project manager, part translator, part positive motivator, always committed to our clients’ and our teams’ success.

If you’re looking for an account director position at a creative agency, you know the basic responsibilities. But Punch does things a bit differently. We’re ultra responsive, adaptive and collaborative with our clients. A lot of our work is with B2B technology companies, cybersecurity and government contractors. So ideally, you’d have an understanding or familiarity with computer science terminology, cybersecurity, government contracting, and national security subject matter – as well as the nonprofit world.

In this position, you’ll be responsible for building strong relationships with clients, serving as the client’s advisor and advocate throughout the project lifecycle. You’ll create, review and manage project timelines, tasks, and scopes. You’ll be a reliable and responsive point of contact, never leaving an email unanswered, or a task incomplete. Sometimes you’ll have to learn complex subject matter, and translate it back to the creative team. Sometimes you’ll have to research a solution, find a vendor, or place a swag order. You’ll enforce the highest standards of quality, communicate task requirements clearly and thoroughly, and ensure all creative work aligns with the client’s brand and business goals.
