Creative Director; Hartford, CT area - relo available

Creative Director; Hartford, CT area
Relo assistance available


Our client is the newly established in-house marketing arm of a large retailer with over $50 billion in sales last year. They are not an advertising agency, but an in-house agency. The company is pre-IPO, so this is a great time to join them.

We are seeking a hands-on, integrated advertising Creative Director with a strong art/design background to help this company build an in-house creative department with the goal of taking all their advertising in-house.This is a great opportunity to build and manage a team and its related processes from the ground up. You will also be doing an entire corporate re-brand once your team is in place.

The work will be integrated - print, direct mail, collateral, broadcast (TV/radio, online video) and digital. There will be a major re-branding effort in the future. Things move along at a steady, reasonable pace here (not crazy OT, nights or weekends) - and the work/life balance will be a big improvement over the agency world. 

The ideal candidate will have 10-15 years' agency experience, 5 at the CD level, with a strong integrated portfolio, a hands-on personality (not apposed to pitching in to get the job done) and some retail account experience. Qualities they are seeking in candidates: good management, team building and hiring experience, "pitch in and get the work done" mentality and must be able to play well in the sandbox -at all levels of the organization.

Personality wise, this person will need to play well with an employee base that is of the "salt of the earth" variety. This is a great opportunity for someone who has always wanted to build their own team or division, and is seeking a better work-life balance in their next position.

Salary $150k range + bonus + pre-IPO benefits!!!
