We have a 10-minute profile that helps us do just that.

Account Executive

MadAveGroup is adding an Account Executive to its team. This business development role has two focuses. The primary is the development of new Key and Major Accounts. The secondary focus is the penetration and retention of existing Key and Major Accounts.

You should be an intelligent, goal-oriented, driven, strategic thinker who exhibits great communication skills. You should also be an expert at moving prospects and clients efficiently and effectively through their buying cycles. The goal of the quintessential MadAve Account Executive is to be perceived by the majority of his/her clients, not as a vendor, not even as a marketing consultant, but rather, as a trusted advisor.

We’ll expect you to come with 2-5 years of selling experience, professional selling skills, and a successful history of developing large accounts.

MadAveGroup is a dynamic family of marketing agencies. Named "A Top Workplace" and "One of the Best Employers in Ohio," MadAveGroup provides a fun, family-oriented (yet politically incorrect) corporate culture that fosters creativity, camaraderie and personal growth.

We believe our employees come first, their families come second and work comes third.

We emphasize personal and professional growth, providing a minimum of four hours of personal development training each month.

Our team members can work out for up to an hour each day in our company gym and, if they’d like, with our personal trainer. They can also earn bonus money by participating in our quarterly Fitness Days.

Our employees receive membership in the on-site MadAve Social Club, which features chess and poker tables, shuffleboard, darts, foosball, crokinole and a fully stocked bar.

Compensation includes base pay, benchmark pay and the popular President’s Club - an all-expenses-paid vacation to an exotic locale. Some roles are also eligible to receive commission, overrides and other performance bonuses.

Other benefits include a 401(k) retirement plan, generous vacations, regular work-related social events and flexible work arrangements. Health, dental and life insurance coverage options are also provided. We believe decisions regarding personal healthcare can only be made by each individual.
