Serve as senior role model within the company. Mentor members of the assigned project teams. Help identify, hire, and retain designers, copywriters, and other creatives. Foster a collaborative creative environment within the company.
Required Qualifications:

Excellent communication and problem-solving skills. Ability to clearly articulate messaging, design, content, or experience related dilemmas, and offer multiple solutions, for both internal and external audiences.
