Account Executive – Partnership Solutions
WQED Multimedia champions communities by telling stories and creating experiences that educate, entertain and inspire our neighbors and friends in Pittsburgh and across southwestern Pennsylvania. Seventy years ago, we launched the country’s first community-supported television station—a forerunner to PBS. Fifty years ago, our classical radio station went on the air. Looking forward, we aim to become known as more than a broadcaster as we enrich communities through education and storytelling.
COMPENSATION & BENEFITS
The annual compensation band for this full-time position is $45,484 to $68,225 base salary, plus commission, commensurate with experience. Total on-target earnings are ~$85,000+. This position is also eligible for performance bonuses as a reward, based on overachievement against goal and/or key milestones. Employer-sponsored benefits include health insurance via UPMC’s Business Advantage plan ($500 deductible, with premiums on a wage-based sliding scale). WQED pays 100% of the premiums for: Delta Dental PPO, long-term disability insurance from The Hartford, and basic life insurance at 1.5X salary. We offer optional vision insurance through Vision Benefits of America. After 12 months, WQED also contributes 5% of employees’ salary to a 403(b) retirement plan managed by TIAA-CREF.
WQED Multimedia is seeking an Account Executive for its Partnership Solutions team to initiate, develop, nurture and grow partnerships with local and national corporations, community arts & culture organizations, colleges & universities, nonprofits and other entities seeking to celebrate, champion and positively influence communities across southwestern Pennsylvania.
This role is distinctly unique from traditional media and agency RFP selling. Success in this role is driven by proactive outbound creative concept selling, appealing to social responsibility budgets.
Under the leadership of the Head of Partnership Solutions, you will be accountable for your allocated goal and contribution to growing what’s currently ~$4 million in non-membership revenue. This is a mix of broadcast advertising, promotional partnerships and trade agreements, and underwriting sponsorships intended to accelerate the impact of various programs and other initiatives.
This is a hybrid role that’s expected to commute to and contribute from WQED’s offices in the Oakland neighborhood of Pittsburgh at least three days per week.
