Project Manager III


“Man must behave like a lighthouse; he must shine day and night for the goodness of everyman.”
- Mehmet Murat ildan

Like a lighthouse, project management must be unbiased and focused on the task at hand... guiding all xfn partners along a path that results in the accomplishment of business goals through both smooth or tumultuous circumstances. The project manager must remain a firm and reliable partner that all XFNs can depend on to get them to the finish line.


Project managers are the glue that help keep programs and people together across multiple goals and sometimes competing priorities. They are responsible for planning, organizing, managing and executing projects or programs from beginning to end. The program scope can vary from unique single pieces of collateral to multifaceted, multichannel marketing/creative campaigns. Another critical function that project managers play a central role in is data assessment and risk analysis. They must be adept at identifying trends, potential roadblocks related to budgets (where applicable), resources and timelines, and formulating plans of action and reporting their findings and suggestions to their supervisor and/or partners, when necessary.
