Seeking a strategically-savvy New Business Director for a true “Hunter” role — not a pitch manager; pitches are handled by others with this person’s input.

  • Research, identify, and prioritize target markets/companies based on who the agency is and where they can be most successful
  • Conduct strategic outreach to high priority prospects –
    • Prospects who have engaged with the agency as a result of marketing activities, i.e. signed up for the newsletter, engaged with content, visited the agency site, etc.
    • Prospects in target vertical markets, who are going through an inflection point, i.e. M&A, Spin-off, new CEO/CMO, etc.
    • Prospects the agency is reaching out to via targeted email marketing campaigns
  • Get to know industry movers and shakers through associations, events, networking groups and trade shows in target vertical markets
  • Pitch agency leadership for speaking engagements, participation in discussion panels and committees, joint research initiatives, etc.
