Role of the Associate Director
The Associate Director is responsible for the overall delivery of MediaCom’s planning output and for continually improving our client relationships. It requires a combination of strong strategic and client servicing skills with the ability to lead and inspire a multifunctional team and local markets to deliver brilliant work.
