Dedicated and driven, the Engagement Director provides both strategic and tactical leadership across multimillion dollar engagements, while keeping up-to-date on daily project activities. We need someone who’s able to identify a client’s business needs and work with both the client and various Huge teams to understand, define and build effective and innovative solutions that generate measurable results and drive client success. An Engagement Director is the kind of person who will know what you want — and what you need—before you do. They can take on the point of view of both our clients and our internal teams, and they know exactly how to express those perspectives, concerns and requirements to the other side. They must be prepared to be as much of a leader as they are a communicator and mentor.
