Additional Posts in New Business. The good, the bad, the ugly.
I’ve been working on a pitch that continues to get delayed and it’s poorly managed. The RFI was due in July. Then days AFTER submission I received an email from the consultant saying we now had until August. End of September rolls around and frankly I had forgotten about this 100-page beast. They want a meet and greet….the following week. The day before the meet and greet we get a list of questions (that aren’t easy softballs). Now 2 weeks later and nothing. What a gross feeling this process is

How do other agencies structure salaries and commissions for new business directors? What commission rate?
Fishies, I am hiring a partner in crime to help me introduce PETERMAYER to the national stage. This isn't your typical biz dev role - it's designed to be a hybrid/cross-discipline role for someone who wants to use their full creative, strategic brain and most definitely NOT stay in their lane. Know anyone that sounds like that, send them my way! (Agency is full-time flex/hybrid, but a desire to be NOLA-based is strongly preferred; however remote may be negotiable.)
Any McCann NY new business fish in here? I see you have an opening and would love to get the inside scoop.
Hi all! Just introducing myself. I’ve become a Bowl Leader here in the new biz bowl. Looking forward to it!

Please comment with a bit about you and your role. Thanks!
