Managing Director, Milwaukee

Trozzolo Communications Group is searching for a Managing Director for its soon-to-be launched office in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

The primary responsibility of this position is to manage the business of this important new venture. The Managing Director will be well rounded, with strong strategic planning and consulting skills across the entire marketing communications spectrum. He or she will be a standout leader – building strategies, managing client and internal agency relationships, and shepherding great work that drives results. Other key responsibilities include business development and leading in the execution of marketing strategies.

Trozzolo’s Milwaukee office is being launched in conjunction with Marquette University and will be the first-of-its-kind student-involved agency. Marquette students will have the opportunity to apply for positions and work alongside professionals to gain real-world experience. Much like an academic medical center prepares medical students through hands-on care, the agency will provide communications students the opportunity to work with best-in-class clients based in the Milwaukee metropolitan area, on real work. The managing director will demonstrate strong mentoring skills, and will work closely with the faculty advisor assigned to the agency by Marquette.

The position reports to the agency’s President & CEO.

Requirements include:

  • 10+ years experience in the communications field – whether in advertising, public relations, or corporate marketing (internal/external)
  • Ideally a bachelor’s degree plus. Master’s Degree is preferred (MBA, Master’s in Communications)
  • Experience leading a team of people
  • Experience mentoring young professionals
  • Strong writing and presentation skills
  • Either existing connections or willingness to become engaged in the Milwaukee business community
  • Demonstrated budget management skills
