Account Executive: Publishing and Consumer/Wellness Brands
First, a little bit about us:
Litzky Public Relations is a boutique agency on the Hoboken waterfront (it’s a pretty amazing view). We are a close-knit team of PR superstars known for our results-focused approach and exceptional client services. We are savvy storytellers and media matchmakers; big thinkers and bold doers. We love what we do – and have a lot of fun doing it. And, we’re in search of a stellar Account Executive to join our team and represent key consumer/wellness accounts and the publishing divisions of some of the world’s most iconic brands.
Note: employees must be vaccinated and able to work in the office at least three days per week.
Now, a little bit about you:
You love a good story. You’re a gifted storyteller and relationship builder. You’re dedicated to finding the right contact to cover your clients, and think creatively about how to get them interested. You’re always brainstorming news hooks, creative partnerships, engaging experiences, and smart campaigns for your clients.
You’re passionate about pop culture. You love to get lost in a good book and stay up to date on all kinds of entertainment – movies, TV, and celebrities.
You’d jump at the chance to attend industry events, lead high-profile book launches, and present new plans and PR strategies at client meetings.
You’re social media savvy. From YouTube creators to Instagram influencers to BookTok personalities, you have a knack for discovering social media stars and fostering relationships with them. You tend to know what’s trending before it’s viral.
You’re a self-starter. If you’re a proactive individual who enjoys working independently but values a team environment, this position is for you.
How you’ll make an impact:
You’ll be a leader. You’ll mentor junior staff, counsel your clients, and collaborate with your contacts to get coverage. You’ll work with your account director to develop strategy and oversee execution, managing timelines and budgets to make sure work gets done on time and at cost.
You’ll make news. You’ll develop strong media lists and lead outreach to land top tier media coverage, consistently putting your clients in the headlines – and reporting the results back to share the glory. PR is never one and done; you’ll build long lasting relationships with the press and influencers you work with.
You’ll become an expert at everything. We wear many hats. One day you’re packing up media mailers, the next you’re facilitating a Q&A with a high-profile author and top tier press. No two days are ever the same.
You’ll be part of a team. We strive to provide a collaborative, creative environment where each person feels encouraged to contribute to our processes, decisions, planning, and culture.
You’ll inspire clients. As part of your day-to-day, you’ll be empowered as a voice of authority on all PR-related matters to clients, providing trusted counsel, monitoring competition, and identifying and sharing industry trends.
Why you’ll love it here:
The benefits are great. In addition to a competitive salary base and compensation plan, we offer a great health insurance program. Employees are also eligible for long and short term disability benefits, life insurance, a medical flexible spending account, and a 401k program.
We have an amazing schedule. Hybrid work schedule, flex hours, paid holidays, generous paid vacation time, and time to rest and recharge while the office is closed between Christmas and New Year’s. Oh, and did we mention we close the office at 1pm on Fridays – all year long?!
The perks are pretty good, too. We’re a dog-friendly office with bagels on Thursday. We love to get together in and out of the office and find lots of reasons to celebrate (and eat snacks) throughout the year. A tie-dye themed pizza party, a murder mystery ”date night,” and a holiday cookie swap are just a few examples from this year alone!

We give back to our community. Employees are encouraged to participate in agency-led volunteer projects throughout the year.
There’s room for growth. We invest in our team and are seriously committed to professional advancement. Need proof? The President of our agency started out as an LPR intern.
So, do you have what it takes?
In addition to the above, our ideal AE has:
- Minimum of three years PR experience (agency or in-house), including experience working with publishing and/or consumer brands
- Ability to multitask in a fast-paced environment
- Existing media relationships and experience with trades, lifestyle press, broadcast, influencers, and consumer events
- Ability to manage strict timelines, demanding deadlines, and client budgets
