We’re Looking for a Senior PR Account Manager!

About the Agency:   

Grady Britton is a Portland-based full-service creative branding agency and a proud certified B Corporation. This nonprofit-led, independent certification means GB voluntarily invests in meeting significantly higher standards of sustainability, governance and giving back to the community in our daily operations. It stands for “Business as a Force for Good” vs. a belief that business exists only to generate profit. Now more than ever, we want our time and talent applied toward greater purpose.   

Our mantra, “Leave today better than yesterday” is a simple, North Star sort of an idea that brings us in everyday: improving, inspiring, challenging, creating for better. Our community, relationships, strategies, processes, the work— and especially, ourselves. It’s what motivates GB’s difference: building business for brands that put people first.
