Padilla Speer Beardsley - Senior Account Executive, Health Care and Medical Device, Minneapolis

Our growing, Minneapolis-based communications firm needs a hit-the-ground-running, results-oriented account manager who balances creativity with strong drive and determination.

Six plus years of experience in health care/medical device with a marketing or public relations agency is required.

The right candidate is a strong team player who enjoys the challenge of balancing deadlines and priorities in a high-energy environment. We are seeking a professional with B2B trade media experience and who can offer strategic counsel to achieve client goals, not just take orders.

The SAE will plan, implement and evaluate communication programs; manage day-to-day client activities; monitor budgets; problem solve; and participate in new business, including lead-generation and prospecting. Strong writing, marketing communications, media relations, account management and client-relations skills are critical.

We are looking for candidates who are passionate about developing integrated campaigns and discussing health trends, reform and newsmakers. Candidates need to understand, synthesize and explain complex subject matter.

Position requires a bachelor degree with a major in marketing or PR/journalism.

Padilla offers an exceptional work environment and benefits. We are an employee-owned firm, which contributed to our recognition as the nation’s “Top Agency to Work For” in 2010.

Our clients span various industries, including health care, technology, consumer products, agriculture, manufacturing, retail, financial services and more. Our staff includes experts in marketing communications, crisis/critical issues management, employee communications, investor relations, market/opinion research, media relations and public affairs.

We’re strategic. We deliver results. We have fun. And we’re seeking entrepreneurial individuals who want to grow with us.
