Account Executive, Business Development

Reports To: President



Do you love working with people? How about building new relationships and fostering existing ones? Do you love to see a plan come together with an A-team of specialized creative forces?

Locations:  In Office at Pekin, IL HQ, Hybrid or Remote

Remote location preferred to be in either in Milwaukee, Minneapolis or Chicago to increase business in those markets.

At McDaniels Marketing, we’re looking for an energetic, organized, and driven Account Executive to oversee acquisition of new business for all divisions within McDaniels Marketing and our digital division, McD Digital. Of course, selling traditional marketing agency services — including marketing strategy, branding, advertising, public relations, marketing research and exhibits is a big part of this role. However, it’s your ability to establish burgeoning relationships with exciting new clients across a spectrum of industries that is the key to success. You’ll research potential new clients, reach out to them through mail, phone calls, or personal solicitation, and work closely with the entire marketing team to craft a marketing strategy that prompts an audible, “Wow!” from the client, or maybe a gasp or “whoa” — we’re not picky.

Client Service & Advisory Role

Account Managers are assigned to each account we land. That means you stay on the client team during the first year of the account, after which time you may remain on the client service team or move on to focus on even more business acquisition — which, judging by the fact that you’ve landed this new client, is clearly one of your strong suits. So, while you won’t be tied up in the day-to-day details of project management, you will be onboard to provide advice and input on strategy and execution.

Education & Skills Needed:

Compensation & Benefits

McDaniels Marketing (origin 1966) and McD Digital (origin 1998) are proven to drive results for clients in agriculture, tourism, healthcare and finance, as well as industrial and consumer products and services.
