President and Partner
Walker Sands is looking for a strategic, detail-oriented senior account manager with integrated marketing skills to join our growing Chicago team.
As an organization that emphasizes constant learning, Walker Sands strives to go above and beyond in developing innovative and strategic programs for our clients. Our client portfolio contains an impressive list of Fortune 500 corporations, startups, fast-growing high-tech companies, professional services firms and business associations.
As a senior account manager, you’ll focus on leading and supporting B2B technology accounts and serve as the day-to-day point of contact for clients. Senior account managers build a deep understanding of the client’s business and drive collaboration across the agency to deliver superior work. Reporting to an account supervisor, you’ll be responsible for building client relationships, leading account teams, directing program strategy and activities, setting and tracking program KPIs, delivering quality work, managing budgets and account profitability, and providing administrative oversight of program scope and contracts.
Senior account managers serve as the liaison between our clients and our internal agency resources, and must be personable and relationship-oriented, as well as demonstrate strong written and verbal communication skills. Candidates should have a strength for multitasking, prioritizing and organizing within a fast-paced, collaborative work environment.
As a senior account manager, you will lead small and medium point-solution accounts across all our services areas, including PR, demand generation, creative, branding and web. You will also support account directors on large integrated accounts, learning the ropes of large account management and strategy.
You’ll ensure that program results are meeting clients’ goals and align with client needs, as well as lead discussions with clients to manage program expectations. You’ll help build our growing Client Services team and learn from industry experts both internally and externally along the way.
