Who we are: bread & Butter is a hands-on communication company with a fondness for all things food, drink and travel. Started by two people with one vision - to fill a gap in a market that is missing a fresh, honest and innovative approach to communications. B&B partners with people, brands and destinations that continually challenge us to think big but act small. How We Make the Dough: We only partner with inventive businesses that inspire us and practice what we preach in our focus on hospitality. We are Southerners at heart, always saying, "Please" and "Thank You," and hustlers by trade. We listen to our clients and work with them to create bespoke campaigns tailored to their vision. We have honest, long-standing relationships with media based on mutual respect and a passion for the industry. For us, there is little difference between work and pleasure because our work is our pleasure. We're Looking at You! We've got an eye out for a rising PR star with experience specific to the travel & hospitality industry with the media knowledge to match. An Account Executive with Bed & Butter - Bread & Butter's travel division - is a go getter, creatively curious and a many-hat wearer who is ready to roll up your sleeves and get to work. When you're not planning an unforgettable trip for a journalist, you're fueling your wanderlust by working with writers to tell the story of the next big trend or what's new in the world of travel. Or, you're reading the headlines and the latest issues of Conde Nast Traveler and Travel + Leisure. You're the account dynamo, helping to meet client goals by building media relationships, crafting strong pitches, and consistently offering creative ideas and on-point deliverables. A proverbial eager beaver, you meet or beat deadlines, stay ahead of trends and always look for a new way to skin a cat. You like to go big - because going home isn't an option. You're learning to be a problem solver, and you value the relationships you're building with media and industry friends. A Bed & Butter AE should be thoughtful, creative, a collaborative worker and strong writer, possess an almost obsessive attention to detail, and is the first to get in the mix when helping means the chance to learn more. Available Opportunity: An Account Executive for Bread & Butter is responsible for managing and answering the needs of the client on a daily basis. Account Executives serve as representatives of the company and as liaisons between the company and the client. Account Executives report to the Account Supervisor or Director.
