Job Description for Account Executive, Advertising

An account executive’s role varies widely across industries. An account executive at an advertising firm is focused on client relations and acquisition. At larger advertising firms, an advertising account executive may hold only one of two roles, acquisition of new clients or maintenance of existing clients; however, at a smaller company, a single executive may perform all functions. The account executive serves as the direct link between the agency and the existing (or potential) client. Thus, strong interpersonal skills are required, since customer service and satisfaction is used to determine the success of an executive. Other job functions may include contract negotiation and interfacing with distributors and media outlets for advertisement placement.
