Account Executive

San Diego

At VITRO, We Steal Share. We aren’t an agency as much as we are a gang of thieves. We’ve been helping our clients grow for over 28 years. We change consumer perceptions, change customer behavior, and change culture at large. Because, by doing so, we change our clients’ businesses and their place in the market.

VITRO was founded in sunny San Diego, and maybe growing up so close to the ocean has helped us maintain a certain vibe and culture. We believe in having fun, because perpetual optimism is a force multiplier. We believe in courage, because true creativity isn’t afraid to stand up and be counted. And we believe in integrity, because building trust creates high performing teams. And, while it’s possible to fail by yourself, success requires teamwork.

Our Client Service Team is responsible for maintaining the relationship between the agency and the client. Client Services are the liaison between the client and the creative team to ensure the client’s needs and goals are being met on every project. An Account Executive (AE) plays an essential role within Client Services Department. An AE manages/supports the execution and production of creative ideas across all media types and generally handles several non-competing client accounts at a time.

We are looking for an individual to take initiative in learning our agency processes and who has the ability to form positive working relationships across all departments.  We want and cultivate advertising junkies; who keeps up to date on the industry, client news and emerging technology.
