Inprela Communications - Senior Account Executive


OVERVIEW
Inprela Communications brings together the brightest public relations professionals to deliver value to the world’s largest manufacturing companies. With senior-level specialists acting as day-to-day client and media contacts, clients get both strategic thinking and hard-working deliverables that hit the mark and produce meaningful outcomes. We don’t have inflated egos, but we’re not ashamed to admit our clients hire us because we’re wicked smart, fun to work with and we help them take their marketing initiatives to the next level. We’re passionate about our work, but we’re strict about adhering to a work-hard, play-hard mentality.

Inprela offers excellent work-life balance for senior practitioners who’ve ‘been there and done that’ with careers that take unnecessary time away from their personal passions. We're selective about the type of work we take on, making sure it's the right fit for both client and agency. It's important to us that the work our team does is both personally and professionally satisfying because we know our clients will benefit from happy employees.

Our clients are willing to take calculated risks, know that we care about meeting their goals and share a mutual respect with our staff, which has historically led to lasting friendships. It’s not uncommon to find our team members enjoying time outside of office hours with clients at backyard barbeques, concerts, art shows or boating on Minnesota waterways.

We’re seeking a Senior Account Executive who is enthusiastic about helping B2B companies tell their stories through all types of news media. This is an exciting opportunity to join a growing team of senior PR practitioners.
