The Senior Account Director role

A sensational role for a creatively ambitious Senior Account Director who wants to take the lead on a great portfolio that includes a luxury UK based drinks account with a global reach.

The client is a family-owned business with a specially crafted portfolio of high end drinks that are indulged in across the world.
