The Opportunity

We are looking for a dynamic leader to drive strategy, messaging and growth in our Media & Entertainment and Telecommunications segments. As the head of our M&E industry strategy, you will partner with sales leaders to deepen our value proposition and enable a coordinated go-to-market strategy. You will also engage regularly with C-level executives as an ambassador for our industry vision. This high-visibility role resides within the Americas Enterprise Sales organization and reports to the VP of Digital Strategy & Solutions.

Develop Adobe's point-of-view on M&E and Telecommunications. Build a vision and competitive positioning for the industry that resonates with executives. This will address, for example, what are the major industry use cases for Adobe Experience Cloud? What does "amazing" look like for digital customer experience, and what tactics are needed for to maximize the return from digital programs? You will have opportunities to collaborate with digital strategists, technologists, data scientists, and other specialists to craft a powerful point-of-view. Drive a coordinated strategy to grow the business. The Adobe M&E community extends across sales, marketing, pre-sales, customer success, product, professional services and our partners. You will monitor the performance of the overall Americas M&E business and drive long-term growth by orchestrating our strategy across functions. Typical activities include convening the industry ecosystem on a regular basis, working with sales leaders on go-to-market planning, advising marketing teams on industry messaging, enabling the field on how to present our M&E point-of-view, advocating with product teams on M&E customer requirements, and aligning with partners on delivery of industry solutions. Engage with senior executives as a thought-leader. Present our industry point-of-view to senior customers and prospects in account meetings, CxO roundtables, Adobe conferences, and industry events. This is a role for someone who enjoys building C-level relationships, opening new doors, speaking at conferences, and advising business leaders how to achieve success on their digital initiatives.
