Account Manager

Posted 19 July by PHMG Easy Apply Featured

PHMG is the world’s leading provider of audio branding, working with more than 32,000 clients in 39 countries. Globally renowned brands such as Audi, Adidas and Coca-Cola trust us to make them sound as good as they look.

Our success is all down to the talented individuals in our London, Manchester and Chicago offices - and we’d like you to join them.

We’re looking for a high-calibre Account Manager to help us ensure that our North American clients get the best value from our service. Reporting to the Client Services Director, you’ll take responsibility for the day-to-day management and support of a number of existing and new accounts. You’ll work closely with our Creative, Production and Sales teams to deliver top-quality productions in the quickest possible time - and ensure that productions stay fresh and up-to-date. The successful applicant will be responsible for maintaining regular contact with clients across America and Canada, to ensure they’re getting the most from our service.

You’ll need to be comfortable managing the demands of big name brands - as well as being helpful to smaller firms looking for guidance and support. You will also identify potential up-selling opportunities, and will need to deliver high levels of creative, technical and commercial advice. A true people person, you’ll have experience working with B2B customers of all sizes, and be an expert in relationship management. The role demands that you’ll talk to people at all levels - from sales executives all the way up to CEOs and Presidents - so you’ll be confident and comfortable in all situations.

Self-motivated and a highly skilled problem-solver, you’re also an exceptional listener, ever empathetic to our clients’ needs while respecting our needs, too.
