DESCRIPTION

Amazon Advertising is dedicated to driving measurable outcomes for brand advertisers and their agencies. Our ad solutions—including Sponsored Ads, display and video advertising, and custom programs—leverage Amazon’s innovations and insights to find, attract, and engage intended audiences throughout their daily journeys. With a range of flexible pricing and buying models, including self-service, managed service, and programmatic ad buying, these solutions help clients build brand awareness, increase product sales, and more.

We are expanding our Global Accounts team to further advance our headquarter-level relationships with some of Amazon Advertising's top clients. Therefore, we are looking for a Global Client Lead.

The Global Client Lead will work directly with Global Media VPs and their teams, global e-commerce leadership, global brand teams, as well as our client's media agency(ies) – to develop global Joint Business Plans, operationalize the global relationship, drive inclusion of Amazon Advertising inclusion in key brands’ global media planning, interface with programmatic and ad tech teams, and help solve clients’ marketing and media challenges with the breadth of our analytics and insights offering.

Longer-term, this role will require business travel to client and Amazon offices in the US, across the EU and new locales from the Americas to Asia, projected to be one week per month on average.

Educate the client’s e-commerce, media and marketing community, develop relationships with the client’s global brand teams

Interface with decision makers and influencers at the clients’ media agency(ies)
Develop and close a global media agreement delineating key global workstreams, resources and an annual spend commitment

2) Enable local account growth through internal leadership

Create incremental local sales opportunities by building a well-connected community of local account executives across North America, EU and Asia
Remove blockers that hold back client spending by influencing internal Amazon teams
Monitor and benchmark local account performance

3) Build efficient global-local processes for Amazon Advertising

Continue improving global-local sales processes, templates and tools that drive global consistency and transparency
