Marketing Director

D Magazine Partners seeks an experienced individual to help manage marketing and event programs driven by our clients. A successful candidate will have deep knowledge of marketing strategy across a variety of industries, specifically as it relates to advertising, events, media, and online platforms. Ideally, the candidate’s experience should include working with sales leadership to understand market and client needs, leadership and management experience, strong organizational skills, promotion and events experience, and a demonstrated ability to work with cross-functional teams. Copywriting skills are also a must.

Successful candidates will be excited and motivated by work that involves driving results by enrolling the commitment and buy-in of others. While the job requires strong initiative and self-direction, results are only achieved with and through people. A critical key to success in this role is the ability to grasp and to quickly react and motivate others to adapt to the changing circumstances. Initiating projects and processes beyond established organization practices will often require training and developing others, and enlisting their support by using a “selling” rather “telling” communication style. The job has variety of tasks and is dynamic and changing. Because goals and desired results can quickly change, the job requires regularly meetings and pro-actively establishing relationships with internal teams and stakeholders. In general, the core of this position requires a motivated and motivating team builder and organization developer, with strong attention to detail. This is a player-coach role; those only interested in managing and not executing need not apply.
