Kohnstamm Communications - Consumer Account Executive



POSITION SUMMARY
Looking for a career working with fast-growth, mission-driven organic and natural food companies? Kohnstamm Communications, rated among the top 10 agencies for both food and bev PR and CSR communications by topPRagencies.com, is looking for consumer PR pros to elevate the national reputations of our newest CPG clients. Kohnstamm has represented more than 75 such “health and wellness” brands over the past 15 years, and is a nationally recognized agency at industry conferences like the Natural Products Expo, the largest global conference for natural, organic and better-for-you CPG products.
If the work sounds appealing, let’s talk culture. Do you thrive in a fast-paced environment? Understand the health and wellness consumer space? Have the poise to work directly with clients and meet their sometimes insatiable PR expectations? If you have at least 2-4 years of hands-on PR experience in an agency or client setting, then we want to speak with you ASAP.
We are seeking an Account Executive (AE) craving an opportunity to work closely with cutting edge, on-the-move clients and generate outstanding results at a boutique agency like ours.
Our AE will be part of  two- or three-person teams, support four client accounts at a time, and be responsible for driving client projects that directly generate transformational outcomes for very entrepreneurial natural product companies. Duties include media relations outreach, driving social media programs, and developing crisp, effective written content. Our AE needs to have a nose for being on top of our clients’ competition and industry landscape and to acquire solid knowledge in current and future food and nutrition practices and trends. A demonstrated ability to work quickly but carefully on multiple fronts, while meeting high client expectations and creating value amidst ambiguity, are key attributes for success. 
In addition to advanced communication skills (written, verbal, presentation), our AE must possess a demonstrated self-directed nature, skilled time management, and an ability to work seamlessly as part of a cohesive team. Kohnstamm is fortunate to have created a very healthy, enlivened, empowered, inclusive and upbeat group — yet to uphold this great  environment, we need to add individuals who can carry their weight — and much more.
A 25-year, 12-person PR agency located smack in downtown St. Paul, Kohnstamm Communications is committed to creating a “Best Places to Work” environment for its dedicated staff, including competitive health and dental benefits, paid downtown parking, flex time, jeans everyday, profit-sharing bonuses, and more.
