Kohnstamm Communications is seeking an Account Executive

Position Summary:

Do you thrive in a fast-paced environment? Enjoy working directly with clients to drive PR strategy? Consider yourself a borderline over-achiever? Then join us! Kohnstamm Communications is seeking an Account Executive (AE) craving an opportunity to work closely with clients and fully utilize their PR experience and insights to impact programs across a diversity of business and consumer accounts.

This AE role requires at least 3 – 5 years of hands-on experience in an agency or client setting. The Account Executive (AE) is responsible for managing key client relationships and projects that generate creative and transformational outcomes. Duties include development, implementation and coordination of consumer public relations and social media programs in sectors ranging from food and beverage to specialized branding. The AE will have a pulse on the competitive and industry landscape and serves as a key contact to client stakeholders.

The Account Executive must understand how businesses work and possess solid knowledge in current and future business policies, practices, trends and information affecting his/her client disciplines. A dedication to meeting client expectations, an ability to create value amidst ambiguity and a focus on achieving results are key attributes for success. 

With superior media relations skills and a proven track record in national and regional placements/publicity, the AE will act as a collaborative and consultative client partner. The AE must possess advanced communication skills (written, verbal, presentation), a self directed nature, and ability to work as part of a cohesive team. As a skilled time manager, the AE is able to concentrate efforts on the most important priorities and will ensure a seamless plan and process for moving client work forward on time and within budget.

Honored at the Sabre Awards as “Boutique Agency of the Year,” downtown St. Paul-based Kohnstamm Communications has accrued a dynamic portfolio of national clients and attracted a committed team of PR pros with deep agency experience from across the country. Here, we work to bring out the best in each other in a professional environment focused on client and team excellence. The marketing industry is taking notice, and we’re looking for intensely focused, smart, independent-minded, PR-savvy individuals – with a sense of humor and appetite for adventure – to help us continue to grow.
