Account Supervisor

Live Wire Strategic Communications, LLC

A powerhouse of strategic communications, the Account Supervisor leads both the PR team and the day-to-day management of traditional, social media, digital and public relations campaigns on behalf of our clients.

In this position, you will serve as the primary point of contact for clients on multiple accounts.  You understand how strategic communications objectives translate into paid, earned, owned and shared media strategies and can explain, for example, how a top-tier media placement can contribute to a client’s bottom line. You see yourself as an organizer, cheerleader and overall doer; you focus on exceeding expectations and are the person to whom others turn when things need to get done.

As an Account Supervisor, you will lead, manage and mentor a team of communications executives and will truly own a portfolio of accounts. The Account Supervisor keeps clients in-the-know and internal teams on their toes; you will translate strategic communications plans into timelines and tasks, keep a constant pulse on projects and manage the agency relationship with assigned clients.
