Account Executive - Lamar Advertising Company (Posted 1-12-19)
Are you a dynamic sales rep interested in helping local businesses with innovative billboard advertising campaigns? If so, we’d love to have you join our sales team as an Account Executive! We need someone who truly appreciates the connection between marketing and sales, someone who genuinely gets excited with each and every sale – big or small. Our Lamar office in Lincoln is now hiring a new Account Executive (salary + commission) to help us bring outdoor advertising campaigns to life for brands in Lincoln and the surrounding communities.
Our new team member will be intrinsically motivated to succeed, highly organized and a strategic thinker. He/she will be able to cultivate client relationships, identify potential growth areas and produce new accounts. The ability to juggle fluctuating workloads and fast paced deadlines is a must, while easily adapting to new apps as they are introduced and working with our CRM platform (Salesforce).
Bachelor's degree preferred. Previous sales or media/marketing sales preferred, but not required.
Lamar Advertising is one of the largest outdoor advertising companies in the world. Lamar offers advertisers a variety of advertising formats, helping both local businesses and national brands stand out from the competition. We live by the Golden Rule, and we operate with honesty and integrity in every aspect of our business. We are open with our employees, transparent with our customers, and loyal to the communities in which we serve. We have been in business over 100 years, and we have stayed true to our mission and values. While Lamar is a large company, each office has its own culture and family atmosphere, making employees feel connected both locally and nationally.
We offer a highly competitive and comprehensive compensation & benefits package for all full-time employees. Some of our benefit offerings include, but are not limited to, multiple medical plan options, dental and vision insurance, paid time off, 401k plan and incentivized wellness programs.
This is a rare opportunity in our Lincoln office as we add an additional sales position to our team. Realistic first year earning potential would be $42,000-$55,000; subsequent year earnings would be determined by ability and growth in sales. We do not cap commissions. We are a stable, proven company with established products and markets.
