Senior Account Executive – Consumer & Lifestyle 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 25 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 Senior Account Executive to join our team and represent some of the world’s most iconic consumer brands.
Now, a little bit about you:
You’re an experienced and well-rounded publicist. You have a minimum of five years relevant work in public relations, including managing internal staff and being the primary day-to-day contact for clients. You boast existing relationships with top-tier press and influencers in the consumer/lifestyle space. Agency experience is a must and in-house experience is a plus.
You love a good story. You’re a gifted storyteller and relationship builder. You think creatively and strategically about PR campaigns that will keep media engaged with your clients – brainstorming news hooks, creative partnerships, engaging experiences, and smart campaigns to get results.
You’re passionate about pop culture. You enjoy all kinds of entertainment: movies, TV, sports, streaming, and gaming. You’d jump at the chance to hop on a plane and attend a convention covering any of it (spoiler alert: we travel to many events throughout the year, and you’ll definitely get to).
You’re social media savvy. From YouTube creators to Instagram influencers to Twitch streamers to passionate brand fans, you have a knack for discovering social media stars. You tend to know what’s trending before it’s viral.
You thrive in a fast-paced environment. You diligently meet deadlines, and know how to shift gears when priorities change (which they can, very quickly!) You sweat the small stuff so your clients don’t have to. You’re an energetic self-starter, resourceful problem solver, and in-the-moment thinker.
How you’ll make an impact:
You’ll be a leader. You’ll manage, mentor, and motivate an account team, counsel clients at all levels, and collaborate with contacts to get coverage. You’ll be a thought leader, staying on top of industry trends and sharing your expertise to keep us all one step ahead.
You’ll be accountable. As the primary account team lead, responsibilities include setting strategy, developing and maintaining budgets, and overseeing plan execution to make sure work gets done on time and at cost.
You’ll make news. You’ll land top tier media placements, consistently putting your clients in the headlines – and reporting the results back to share the glory.
Your voice will be heard. Our senior team sets the tone for the agency, from maintaining high work standards to fostering our unique office culture. Across the agency, we strive to provide a collaborative, creative environment where each person feels encouraged to contribute to our processes, decisions, planning, and culture.
Why you’ll love it here:
The benefits are great. In addition to a competitive salary base and compensation plan, we cover health insurance in full. Employees are also eligible for long and short term disability benefits, life insurance, a medical flexible spending account, and a 401k program.
The perks are pretty good, too. We’re a dog-friendly office with yoga on Wednesdays. We love to get together in and out of the office, and find lots of reasons to celebrate throughout the year – from summer happy hours to holiday cookie swaps to National Donut Day (we love snacks, too).

We have an amazing schedule. Flex hours, paid holidays, two weeks paid vacation, summer Fridays, and time to rest and recharge while the office is closed between Christmas and New Year’s.
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.
