Account Executive
As an Account Executive, you’ll plan, develop and implement public relations and marketing programs for a wide range of organizations and industries, collaborating directly with C-suite executives and your Werth teammates. While you’ll use your entire portfolio of skills, your ability to think and plan strategically is what will set you apart from ordinary tacticians and make the biggest difference in your success at our firm.

At Werth, you’ll have the opportunity to continually learn about our clients and their competitive environments and will be able to translate that information into strategically focused programs and ongoing counsel.
Client Service Responsibilities
  • Build and nurture relationships with clients and pitch public relations and marketing services to clients and prospects. Earn clients trust in yourself and the firm, both in a professional setting and in the community.
  • For Werth clients and the firm, create, advise and manage a variety of public relations and marketing programs including strategies and content for integrated communications such as media relations, social media, thought leadership, blog posts, email campaigns, out-of-home and print advertising, PPC campaigns and SEO implementation, as well as develop media content calendars.
  • Ensure client goals and objectives are met or exceeded, on time and on budget, with measured results. Additionally, monitor program plans and budgets to account for profitability, and regularly report program status to the client and Werth management.
  • Monitor and analyze social and web metrics and make improvements accordingly, in collaboration with the digital team.
  • Stay updated on current industry trends and adjust communications strategies as needed.
  • Develop an understanding of various research methods and coordinate internal and external resources in implementing research projects as they arise.
Team Leadership Responsibilities

We are colleagues and teammates who continually strive to live Werth’s values, mission, goals and culture. In this position, you will work collegially with associates from a diverse set of professional backgrounds and talents; we need and use the best thinking and talents of everyone.

  • At Werth, you’ll facilitate collaboration within your account teams, coordinate team resources, remain flexible while ensuring accountability, and create opportunities for less experienced staff to assume more responsibility. You’ll fully utilize agency resources to provide superior performance for our clients.
  • You’ll exhibit and encourage a high-energy, optimistic, “can do” attitude and continually contribute to a results-oriented work environment. You’ll reinforce the importance and value of each colleague’s contributions and set standards of excellence and leadership by your example.
  • As Account Executive, you’ll also seek counsel from the firm’s financial team to execute our financial policies and procedures as they relate to client plans and budgets.
Minimum Qualifications

At Werth, you’ll use all of your talents, sometimes in unforeseen ways. Although we look for some key attributes that are important to the kind of work we do, we learned long ago that the greatest predictors of success are attitude, character, strategic thinking, a team mentality and a willingness to grow. If you can’t check all the boxes below, we would still like to hear from you.
