This agency is looking to grow their team and the new recruit will be a key member of their leadership team, they need someone who can lead and grow some awesome accounts, ensuring exceptional client service and delivery and also oversee a fantastic client services team working at AD to AE level. Within this role you'd be overseeing a team that work on FMCG and F&B clients (including some of the world's best known brands) whose campaigns span TV, social media, in-store POS, retail display, advertising, experiential events and activation, rebrands, sponsorships and brand partnerships and on pack promotions.
