  • Creative excellence—from you, from us, and always as a team

  • Working closely in assisting our Executive Director and Director of Sales
  • Overdosing on high-fives
  • Time travel, needed for staying ahead of current advertising trends and competitive reports

  • Help develop client relationships and retain existing accounts
