Account Executive

View All

The Account Executive plays a media focussed and team support role. The role requires the ability to handle a number of projects at any one time as well as being able to respond quickly to journalist and team requests. The Account Executive will develop a clear understanding of the team’s requirements and objectives, be proactive in attitude and supportive to the team at all times.

About us:

We are an entrepreneurial integrated communications agency that has gone from start-up to multi-national in twenty years. We have entered the world’s top 30 agencies and have ambition to break the top ten by 2020. We have 27 offices, 600 employees and revenues of $65m and rising. Our success is due to a combination of organic growth and strategic acquisitions and is reflected in being named PRCA’s International Agency of the Year for 2015. 

Central to our growth has been our policy of reinvestment, with the majority of profits returning to the company to propel development, including our Rise training Academy.  We are the fourth fastest growing agency in the global top 50. What makes us different is that, not only are we independent, but we are 100% employee-owned.

As we rapidly scale the business, our challenge is not to lose any of our character. We must establish a clear and visible brand in the marketplace. We must be seen as entrepreneurial, agile, creative, credible and professional. We believe that we are on the cusp of something truly remarkable in our industry.

About the role:
The Account Executive role at LEWIS Kuala Lumpur rewards a proactive nature, enthusiasm and drive. Your professional skills will be enhanced every day you spend at the company, and you’ll be working with a team that has your back.
You will play a key and visible role in the execution of integrated marketing programs for a range of B2B and B2C clients at LEWIS. You will receive intensive training on what it takes to be a successful PR professional and primarily be focused on proactive engagement and relationship building with media, bloggers and social media influencers, leading to positive awareness and coverage for each client.

The account executive is effectively the press officer on a PR account. He or she is responsible for day-to-day media liaison, fielding journalist enquiries, managing resources such as photos and press kits and preparing materials for reporting back to the client

About you:
You’re bright, personable and technology-savvy, with a passion for both traditional and social media, and a broad range of experience and interests. You will need a university degree in a related field with above average scores, knowledge of technology (both enterprise and consumer tech are important) and have excellent multi-tasking/organizational skills. Usage and an avid interest in social media channels will also get you through the door.
We’d love you to have 1-2 year's PR experience and hope you will be articulate, detail-oriented, creative, energetic and ambitious. Oh, and a strong sense of humour is key.
You should preferably be a Malaysian citizen residing in Kuala Lumpur.
