The primary role of the Project Manager is to successfully own both the client relationship and their campaigns/projects, from inception through delivery, on behalf of the client and Quad.
Please note that this is not a technical nor a creative role, but one requiring marketing experience, across all channels, broadcast, print, digital and events. The ability to work cross-functionally within the creative process and speak the language of marketing from a creative and media standpoint is essential.
Quad expects that the Project Manager will act at all times to assure the highest level of ethics, professionalism, and personal performance. She/He will work enthusiastically to meet or exceed all performance goals set by Quad and will contribute his or her utmost to support achievement of stated goals. Quad, Inc. expects all employees, including the Marketing Project Manager, to fully support Quad’s position with its clients.
Quad is a full-service marketing solutions provider supporting some of the world’s most recognizable retailers. With our unique onsite approach, we literally put our associates’ expertise in the client’s hands— and in the client’s environment— working as an extension of their marketing team.
At Quad, we value people and relationships. Going beyond just traditional project management, we offer unparalleled client service that guides not only the functional aspects of a marketing campaign but, as important, builds a foundation of trust.
