Business Development Director

BrandLinkDC is hiring a Business Development Director to join our growing team and to help maximize the rising interest in BrandLinkDC’s unique approach and successful agency model. This is not a traditional sales job, as we are not a traditional agency. We are looking for someone who is obsessed with creating long-term meaningful client relationships and not just hitting short-term sales goals.

The Biz Dev Director will oversee business development initiatives from the opportunity phase through the contract phase. The Biz Dev Director will work closely with the VP of Marketing and Co-CEO to develop strategy, create proposals and maintain communications with prospective clients. The Biz Dev Director will be given quotas and new client acquisition targets, and will work closely with internal teams from each department to craft customized proposals and improve outreach strategy. This candidate will be required to develop a deep understanding of BrandLink’s core values and mission in order to identify the ideal new business targets.

The successful candidate will be motivated by a passion for our success, our client’s success, and their unique role in driving the agency forward.
