Financial Services Public Relations-SAE/AS Level (San Diego, California)

Our client is a boutique financial/technology services PR agency (about 10 people). The Principal lived in New York, was very successful in financial PR (I met him back in 2006) but decided he longed for the Southern California lifestyle and moved there at the end of the last decade. His company is looking for a Senior Account Executive or Account Supervisor with about 4-8 years experience. Ideally most of your experience is in financial services pr. Technology pr or professional services pr would work also as long as you have a very strong interest in financial services public relations. Must have knowledge of financial media and financial terminology related to publicly traded companies. Should have a proven track record of media results success on both a local and national level. This position is open due to growth. 

It’s a fun, creative atmosphere in the Little Italy area of San Diego with lots of bars and restaurants nearby. Some of the team has come from large companies but they all now work in an entrepreneurial, hands-on atmosphere with strong growth potential. Their office environment is a laid-back, fun setting but make no mistake, even though it is in San Diego they work hard and play hard! Expect a fast paced day and plenty of opportunity to shine and be rewarded for your hard work. About 10%-20% overnight travel.

Their ideal SAE/AS is a news and PR junkie, who loves the thrill of pitching top-tier business media, writing a timely blog post and managing client PR campaigns. Pitching the Wall Street Journal?
