Serino Coyne - New York, NY

Job Description:
We are a full-service marketing and advertising agency that marries the human stories of our clients with storytelling, art, data, and conversations that are smart and compelling. That’s Serino Coyne .

We believe in the transformative power of a shared live experience. No matter where people buy a ticket – the theater, an attraction, a museum – we’re there because we know what it takes to connect creators with seekers. We are makers and thinkers, analysts and storytellers, artists, and filmmakers. We make meaningful connections that inspire. We create. We innovate. We nourish.

Our employees are our best investment. We value and celebrate each person’s worth, purpose and identity because that’s how our family flourishes. An inclusive and diverse workplace is a powerful workplace, and we strive to reflect and support equity and opportunity in all we do. We’re continuously learning and improving because that’s how thoughtful change happens.

We are recruiting for an Events Manager , who will execute various special events with an emphasis on Broadway opening nights, entertainment-based galas, the Tony Awards, and various corporate functions. You will manage all the production elements of events, coordinate event details, develop and maintain relationships with clients, venues, and vendors, manage budgets, and keep all information regarding each event recorded and organized. You are acutely aware of the needs of clients/guests and are able to anticipate them. You oversee the support staff at these events in a clear, communicative, concise, diplomatic, and respectful manner. You are fanatical about follow-up; you are proactive with regards to ensuring all “I’s” are dotted and all “T’s” have been crossed.

You follow-up with clients, and with the agency’s senior leaders; you also have demonstrated experience at successfully handling a wide range of administrative support events-related tasks; you’re proactive in initiating or responding to status inquiries, and you’re extremely competent at working independently with little or no supervision. You are exceptionally well organized, flexible and enjoy the dead-line driven challenges, un-scheduled event changes that are a part of this “world”, but you approach these scenarios with considerable effervescent aplomb. YOU are the personification of patience and smiling while effortlessly providing discrete support to our clients.
