Overview

At Page, we promise design that makes lives better. We’re actively seeking talented people to join an empowered employee environment. With offices in Albuquerque, Austin, Dallas, Denver, Dubai, Houston, Mexico City, Phoenix, San Francisco and Washington DC, Page provides architecture, engineering, interiors and consulting services on large, complex projects around the world. We credit the success of our projects that build communities to the global diversity of our people’s backgrounds and experiences. By following our core values in the delivery of our services, we’ve become – and remain – a vital and respected firm. We’re seeking highly creative, committed team members to help us deliver on our promise of making lives better through design. As our market sectors and services grow, we continuously add new opportunities. Will you join us? 

Responsibilities

We are seeking an experienced B2B Communications Director for a growing team that is responsible for protecting and promoting Page’s reputation through storytelling that emphasizes our people. The position holder will collaborate with several other internal team directors to implement a new organizational design with some shared resources. The role requires vision for meeting a rapidly expanding firm’s communication needs with finite resources, experience with metrics to prove the team’s value to the firm’s bottom line and commitment to meeting agreed-upon business goals.

 

This position marries strategy, collaboration with other directors and management of employees executing multiple communication elements. It requires the expertise to guide lower-level staff in effective execution of traditional and digital media; external stakeholder and employee communications; website and intranet management and content strategy and development. A process-oriented mindset will serve to oversee other aspects of Page’s reputation such as award submissions, top tier project photography process management and cultural content.

 

The ideal candidate possesses a track record of managing a virtual team and collaborating across offices and business sectors. They should understand how B2B marketing and business development activities intersect and align with the spokes of a corporate communication umbrella. Multiplatform campaign experience from concept to completion is a plus; architectural industry experience is not necessary but a fresh perspective on distinguishing Page within a crowded industry would then be expected.

 

Responsibilities will include: 

  • Develop and implement a comprehensive communications strategy to increase the visibility of Page’s market sectors, practice areas and thought leaders in an equitable way;
  • Develop corporate programming and executive visibility strategies encompassing media, thought leadership, events, and influencer engagement to build reputation;
  • Oversee external communications for the firm including media relations for corporate announcements, social media engagement, proactive storytelling, and awards;
  • Challenge and inspire collaborative Communications, Marketing and Business Development teams to think differently and generate ideas around communication channels, platforms, and storytellers;
  • Identify and measure KPIs and goals for our work;
  • Provide sound media counsel to our firm’s leadership.

Qualifications

  • Bachelor’s degree from an accredited university in communications, public relations, journalism, or related field;
  • 15+ years of experience in B2B marcom experience in a multidisciplinary corporation;
  • Agency experience preferred;
  • Account management a plus:
  • Knowledge of communications methodology in Latin America preferred;
  • Experience with EDI communications is a plus:
  • Diplomacy and tact required as the role will interact with Board members, Pagers at a variety of levels, in addition to industry partners;
  • Knowledge of media and communications principles, ethics, practices, and techniques as well as technical applications;
  • Exceptional written and oral communications skills including editorial experience;
  • Experience tracking industry and competitor best practices and determining suitability for application at Page;
  • Experience with staying atop evolutions in digital media platforms;
  • Strategic thinker with an integrated perspective including digital, social, influencers, strategic partners, and experiences;
  • A keen appreciation and understanding of the narrative and storytelling focus about the people who make architecture, engineering, design, and related consulting practice areas successful;
  • Strong interpersonal skills and the ability to communicate plainly and directly – with empathy and insight;
  • Unimpeded by challenges and able to provide many dynamic solutions.

 To apply, please submit a resume and cover letter summarizing your interest and experience.
