DEG Account Coordinator in Overland Park, Kansas

DEG is seeking an Account Coordinator to support the Account Service team. The Account Coordinator provides administrative and coordination support to the account group for activities related to approved projects and programs.

Account Coordinators are given the latitude to think of new ways to make our clients more money and improve on their marketing. Account Coordinators work with several departments here at DEG, giving them insight into many of our disciplines.

Our highly entrepreneurial, collaborative, and dynamic environment is the perfect place for smart, motivated people to make an impact. With competitive benefits and a dedication to work-life balance, we are also a great place to come work.
