regional director

What we are looking for

Want to be part of the team revolutionizing the out-of-home(OOH) industry?

Billups is the largest independent OOH media specialist agency in the country, blending the power of a large company with the freedom of a small one.

We’re looking for someone to join our team as regional director and deliver incredible results. Whether it’s traditional OOH, DOOH or experiential, you’ll be working directly with clients at the forefront of a company dedicated to changing the OOH industry.

Ambitious? Well, yes. That’s just the way we like it. We hope you do, too.

As a Billups regional director, you’ll be part of a team that’s delivering innovative planning, direction and oversight for out-of-home executions. You’ll be responsible for providing both strategic and tactical leadership in the region. This role is as much a leader as they are a communicator and mentor. The ability to read between the lines and hear what is not being said is at the core of this role; and an ability to solicit information and transform it into a meaningful action is a key skill.

You’ll work directly with clients to nurture long-term relationships as their partner, helping them with strategy, planning, purchasing and sometimes pitching OOH options to their client. And as part of Billups, you’ll be on the cutting-edge of innovation as an early user of Boohma, a revolutionary planning software from our sister company Boohma Technologies.

When you get right down to it, we’re looking for someone who fits our core values. You should be inspired, collaborative, relentless, innovative, authentic and empowered. If this sounds like you, if you know the OOH industry cold and if you’re looking for a new adventure, then you might be a good fit for the Billups team.
