Tell us more about a day in the life of an Account Executive at Reynolds-MacKenzie?

The day normally begins with media monitoring and reviewing key tasks to be completed for the day. As an Account Executive I’m responsible for the day-to-day building blocks of account management such as updating status reports, managing cost trackers and providing support on deliverables. Normally, I will work on a number of different things in a day. No two days (or even two hours sometimes) are the same! For instance, some of my time may be spent developing social media content for a client’s social media channels, other times I will work on press releases and backgrounders and there are times where I might be working on disease awareness projects. There is so much variety to the job.
