  • Marketing Manager

    (Greenville)

    Cargo, founded in 2006, is a leading North American (NA) marketing agency working with global brands that include Lenovo, Mercedes-Benz, 3M, RBC, and other Fortune500 brands. From the start, Cargo believed creativity and strategy were a mindset vs a department. And ideas can be born from anywhere or anyone at any time. That same problem-solving, passionate, entrepreneurial spirit is what has driven our day-to-day and our growth and is what we hunt for in the people that join the Cargo team.

    This role resides in the Cargo Business Development Unit (BDU) which is solely focused on marketing and selling Cargo to prospective, and select existing, clients. The Marketing Manager (MM) reports to the Senior Marketing Manager (SMM) and serves as the team’s project manager and content marketing campaign specialist. S/he helps direct the development and leads the deployment of content creation and promotional campaigns across a variety of offline and online channels.

    The MM will be based in Cargo’s Greenville office supporting US and Canadian BDU efforts.
