Account Executive/Client Partner

At BCF, we seek those who want to be greater than who they are today. It’s not ok to be ok. We fight for distinction – for work that changes an individual’s outlook on life. We want those who are hungry, passionate and driven.

We want someone who sees the world differently – someone with no boundaries, but can make the impossible … possible. With that focus, we deliver powerful campaigns for our clients.

BCF is looking for a client partner – some who can help our clients solve their business challenges. You must work closely with clients to understand their specific needs and business objectives, and then help identify and implement campaigns and tactics that help achieve their goals. You will serve as the relationship-builder between the clients and the agency. We want someone who can manage the day-to-day activities of our clients with grace and professionalism, while always looking for ways to grow the clients’ brands as well as our agency.

The Account Executive must lead and inspire collaboration among our teams. The ideal candidate will consistently seek ways to improve the agency’s business model. We’re looking for a dynamic account executive who can work on a number of projects simultaneously, and has a “sleeves rolled-up” mentality – someone who thrives on taking on new challenges. This business is fast-paced and exciting, and requires an AE who is adaptable and capable of delivering campaigns on time and on budget. You also must be confident in presentations and when networking with clients and potential partners.
