Account Supervisor Charlotte

Account Executives – looking to grow? So are we.

 

HMH is a creative marketing agency based in Portland, Oregon and Charlotte, North Carolina, and we’re passionate about creating ideas. Ideas that fuel the imagination, make emotional connections, take chances, start conversations and build relationships. We need account management leaders who are just as smitten to join our team, and also share our basic beliefs – be brave, play nice, be human and stay curious.

 

To do well, you must thrive in a fast-paced environment and be skilled at multi-tasking. We need you to be a go-to lead, a generator of ideas, a problem-solver, a strategically sound thinker, and be naturally adept at delighting clients (and hey, co-workers, too). Of course, you also need to love what you do.

 

Your role will be significant in enhancing our work and helping our clients succeed. So, if you love the what-ifs and creativity of this business, are highly adaptable, have shrewd instincts, an abundance of common sense, and the savvy needed to lead, we want to meet you.
