Aquent, the world leader in digital, marketing, and creative staffing, is seeking a consultative, results-
driven sales leader to maintain and grow deep and lasting relationships within a large key account (think
Fortune 500), while achieving assigned goals for sales(full-time equivalency staffing placements) and
profit growth.

The Account Director (AD) is expected to retain existing business, while pursuing additional profitable
growth opportunities within the key account. The AD is responsible for selling and supporting Aquent’s
complete product and service offering. Focusing on existing and new buyers with high-value, strategic

goal of 1 to 100 FTEs across an enterprise.
