Account Executive – New York

We are looking for an account executive to be part of the New York team. As an account executive you will be part of a team whose main focus is advising global financial services companies on communications strategies that connects them with their audiences.

You will be an important member of that team. Responsibilities for an account executive at Cognito are diverse and unique to each client, where you will have the opportunity to work across the communications spectrum, whether it is working with the financial press on deadline, or putting social media content out into the world on behalf of your client.
