Cramer Creative Director/Events in Norwood, Massachusetts
The Creative Director will have responsibility for development of creative concepts and ideas for a wide variety of events, meetings and conferences -- virtual, hybrid and face-to-face. You will help sell your ideas and approaches into our clients and then manage them through creative execution.
We have a long history as a face-to-face event industry leader and have managed to pivot this year to focus on virtual and events and live broadcasts for our clients. We see hybrid and a return to more face-to-face work is in our future as we get into fall of 2021 and beyond.
Cramer is fast moving forward-looking organization that is always looking for innovative new solutions for engaging audiences. We push for fresh, relevant and brand-appropriate ideas. Your focus will be on event ideation, audience engagement and creating live experiences that could take place in a variety of venues including our broadcast studios, virtual platforms and soon again... ballrooms, arenas and large theaters. Ideally, you have some experience in all of these.
You will know what it means to be the "lightening rod in the ballroom," to be both the keeper of the event vision and provide the creative leadership needed by our clients as well as our technical and production teams. Broadcast and virtual event direction experience are a big plus -- because right now, we're doing a lot of it.
The good news for you, is that we have an amazing 70,000 square foot facility outside Boston that now includes four broadcast control rooms, two studios/sound stages, two audio suites, 7 edit suites and a whole lot more. Including some talented resources at your disposal in all those positions.
