About The Company
We are a full-service marketing and advertising agency, based in the Vail Valley and seeking a talented Account Manager to join our team. We are hardworking individuals who love the fast-paced environment of a small agency. Our clients are cool, so we always get to do amazing work. Who doesn’t love promoting skiing, mountain biking, hot springs, luxury hotels…. Just to name a few of our adventure clients. Or breakthroughs in medical equipment, patented technology for global businesses or sustainable farming at high altitude. Every client provides our team members the opportunity to think creatively, differently and really push the envelope in marketing and advertising.
Based in the heart of the Rockies, we take full advantage of our location. It is important to all of us to walk-the-walk and talk-the-talk of our clients and the products we work with. Therefore, we have created a “work hard and play hard” culture. We are looking for someone who embraces the lifestyle, but is accountable to stay on top of client work and not only meet the needs, but continue to exceed them. With long lasting client relationships, there is always the opportunity to do more and think strategically about every piece of marketing material.
Our goal and vision is to continue to be known as a leader in the industry. We are looking for a candidate who can join our team and become a reliable resource for our development and account leadership. Who has experience in an agency environment and able to step in and immediately take the reins with key accounts. We are looking for a driven, self-starting, motivated, individual who wants to continue a career in marketing and grow with the team.
