Account Executive - Public Relations

Brian Communications · Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Department Brian Communications
Employment Type Full-Time
Minimum Experience Entry-level

Fast-paced, creative and passionately focused on elevating the organizations, events and leaders that make the Philadelphia region – and beyond – go, Brian Communications is seeking an Account Executive to help deliver strategic, dynamic ideas (and high-profile results), which are the hallmark of a Brian Tierney-led agency.  


The Role:  

Relationships Matter: Account Executives are asked to build and maintain relationships with clients and the media.  These are delicate and important relationships but in different ways.  The successful candidate can respond to the different needs of these critical agency constituents and find ways to support both with strategic, winning ideas.   

An Ace Pitcher:  Channel your inner Aaron Nola here, friends.  It’s all about crafting a creative pitch, finding the hook and giving a reporter a fantastic story to tell.  Media relations, especially pitching, is a core responsibility for Account Executives.  You will draft key media materials (press releases/statements, media advisory, fact sheet, reporter backgrounders, etc.) and concentrate your energy on securing media placements at the national and regional level for our diverse client base.  

The Engine that Can: In support of agency leaders and account teams, help oversee efforts – and Assistant Account Executives as well as interns – in identifying logistical support/vendors and crafting smart budgets.  A new vendor?  A more cost-effective option?  A different approach to solving a problem? This role helps to bring the big ideas to life by creating the foundational support to make it happen.   

Basic, But Next Level:  We don’t mean “basic” in that way.  We mean that you’ve begun to master the core skills upon which a strong public relations career is built and you’re taking it up a notch.  You deliver media analyses/reports, build comprehensive media lists, create background materials as well as flag key industry and client-related media placements.  But now, you’re seeing how the pieces come together and you’re generating new ideas based on these, which create new opportunities for clients and the agency.  

The Ideal Candidate Is…   

  • An active listener and synthesizer of information across various accounts and industries  

  • A good writer and critical thinker, open to feedback and willing to “take another run at it” when asked 

  • A detail – and deadline – oriented individual with a love of learning (Nope. It doesn’t end with graduation) 

  • A hand raiser.  Be the kid you always wanted to be (or were) in 2nd grade.  We love it.  

  • Passionate about the work – whatever it may be – and the agency.   

  • Respectful of clients, colleagues and the media.  We’re all in this together. 

  • Genuinely, nice to be around.    


  • Bachelor’s Degree: Communications, Public Relations, Journalism, English, or a related field. 

  • Full-time professional experience:  1-3 years.
