We’re on the hunt for an account manager to join our forward-leaning team of marketing writers, artists, strategists and digital experts.
You are: A good-natured, team-playing, detail-oriented account manager or project manager with deep experience at an advertising/design/digital agency or inside a high-performing marketing department. You’re an insightful self-starter who values inclusivity and a culture of trust. You’ll jump in to help wherever needed and ensure projects are delivered on time, on budget and on target.
The team will be handling global PR and integrated marketing and supporting Micron with crisis and issues-related communications duties. According to the article, the cross-agency group, called teamM, also includes Weber Shandwick and digital marketing shop MRM.
What this ultimately means for local shops that have been doing project-based work for Micron remains to be seen. Given the size of the company and the nature of those types of projects, however, I suspect they will continue to some extent.
