Director, Client Partnership (Account Director)

Client Team · Atlanta, Georgia
Department Client Team
Employment Type Full-Time
Minimum Experience Manager/Supervisor

Dagger is a close-knit group of deeply driven, passionate, innovative thinkers, makers, and doers. We’re looking for another stellar addition to our team to help us cultivate ideas that strengthen our client offerings, win more awards, and achieve our goal to be the most compelling agency Atlanta has ever seen.

At Dagger, we see the service we provide our clients and colleagues as a living, breathing, and changing relationship that drives success for the agency. Since accounts are transactional things and management is dealing with or controlling things or people, we see the work we do as Client Partnership.

We are hiring a Director, Client Partnership, to manage key agency accounts, consisting of domestic, national brands. Through a keen understanding of our clients’ business and traditional and non-traditional marketing, you will build critical consultative relationships with clients, becoming a trusted and valued partner. With exceptional problem-solving, communication, and leadership skills, you will lead and grow the Dagger business within a client portfolio.

First and foremost, we are looking for hustle and the aspiration of being a difference-maker. Then we differentiate candidates with exceptional ability to make connections, drive business strategy, communication, and leadership skills.

How can you tell if this role is right for you? If...

You are:

An entrepreneurial thinker, creative problem-solver, effective communicator, and true team player. You’re known for tackling even the most complex challenges with a passionate, ‘can-do’ attitude, always assuming positive intent in your interactions with teammates and with clients. And you believe that, at the end of the day, ideas are only as good as their execution.

You have:

  • Substantial experience developing fully integrated cross-channel campaigns in a digital agency/B2B environment.
  • Experience delivering high-quality integrated campaign assets across various channels, including TV, radio, social, and digital.
  • Experience with brand-level communications and branding initiatives.
  • Proven ability to add incremental value to strategic initiatives and communicate that strategy to clients in a way that makes it easy to understand.
  • A track record of exhibiting an acute understanding of a client’s business challenges.
  • A reputation for building and maintaining long-term relationships with senior clients and making connections across a client’s organization.
  • A high energy, assertive, and proactive work style (you’re a self-starter by nature).
  • A seemingly never-ending supply of curiosity, inventiveness, imagination, decisiveness, and natural leadership.

You’re really good at:

  • Leading and managing junior members of the team and fostering their career growth through clear direction, motivation.
  • Creating and maintaining strong client relationships--improving the health of our client's business, leading and growing established pieces of business autonomously.
  • Collaborating cross-functionally on strategic direction for account and workstreams.
  • Navigating and communicating the impact of changes to scope, owning, and supporting all stakeholders.
  • Ensuring the right resources are allocated on account projects through tight coordination with client delivery (project management).
  • Developing briefs, including the development of client insights that translate into digestible creative/project briefs.
  • Owning point-of-view (POV) development for the client, emphasizing digital and social marketing channel expertise.
  • Developing and managing accurate and thorough Statements of Work (SOWs) alongside our client delivery partners.
  • Communicating client business plans, feedback, and opportunities to leadership.
  • Contributing to new business pitch projects.
