  • Assimilate business, customer, and marketplace insights into the development of strategies and marketing programs
  • Ensure agency teams have timely and accurate market data, strategic direction, and budget limits
  • Develop and defend strategic presentations and agency POVs
  • Oversee financial aspects of accounts including, development of SOWs, forecasting of account revenues, contract compliance, and agency resource usage
  • Monitor and manage all client initiatives to ensure delivery of high-quality services and outputs on budget and timeline
