Business Develop­ment Associate

Hanson seeks to hire a full time Business Development Associate (BDA) with excellent communication and organizational skills who is willing to aggressively generate qualified leads that produce net new business. In most cases the BDA offers the prospective client an initial impression of Hanson and our culture, representing our experience and engagement with world-class brands (think HGTV, Kwikset, Pfister Faucets, Thirty-One Gifts, KeyBank, Worthington Industries and more).

Based out of our Columbus, Ohio office located in the vibrant Short North area, this person will provide day-to-day support for the New Business team and will champion prospecting, lead generation, outbound communication, introductory calls, presentation/pitch development and more.

You don’t have to be expert in brand and marketing strategy, web development, application design or our other agency disciplines – but you do have to demonstrate interest in our model and the “hustle” of selling marketing solutions that great brands desire.
