  • A comprehensive understanding of the dynamics and workings of the agency’s process as it relates to the client’s business/willingness to work to our process and the ethos of how we work with clients.
  • Strong internal relationships
  • A good listener, someone who reads people and those in a room well (and adapts their style and response accordingly)
