What’s an account manager at Brandyard like?

Brandyard account managers are all about communication, understanding and responsibility. As the bridge between client and the rest of the team, account managers must be able to convey both the client’s needs and objectives as well as the team’s intent and solutions clearly. As the key contact for day-to-day management, our account managers can communicate with and adjust to different clients, brands and team members with ease.

Working within a team rooted in design and strategy, Brandyard account managers are mindful of what makes each client special and helps the team strategize on the best ways to showcase it. Armed with the willingness to learn, they are always on the lookout for what’s new, and love to ask how else they can make something better.
