The Assembly is hiring an Account Executive in partnership with The Charlotte Ledger to manage advertising sales for their core newsletter products as well as additional products and event sponsorships.
This person will be responsible for developing and maintaining strong relationships with partners and potential advertisers across the state of North Carolina, as well as with large national brands and organizations.
The position will work closely with the director to jumpstart a paid events strategy, bring in robust advertising revenue and launch several new products with advertising backing behind them. The account executive will also work with The Charlotte Ledger’s team to sell and improve existing newsletter sponsorships, help develop a revenue strategy around a budding event program and brainstorm new revenue opportunities.
The ideal candidate is a go-getter and a creative thinker, comfortable with taking initiative, with business and social smarts.
