One thought on “JOB ALERT: Account Supervisor (NYC)”
  1. I represent a NYC law Firm in advertising. We are thinking of taking a different tack. Would one of your owners care to give me a call to discuss my objectives, your resources and the kind of money we are going to have to invest.

    Thank you
