  • Work closely with Group Agency Manager to maximise the revenue opportunity within the agency group to meet and exceed targets and objectives
  • Work alongside our industry leading internal teams (Data Science, Marketing and the newly formed internal Creative Agency) to create and deliver pitches to potential clients to obtain new, or repeat, business opportunities. 
  • Develop and build key relationships with existing agencies to secure repeat business
  • Fully manage the sale process and agency/client relationship from brief to execution
