Where a project manager oversees specific projects and specialized teams, a Campaign Manager oversees all of the different projects and provides general direction for the teams involved within a campaign. They work in many different industries, including marketing, advertising, retail, and politics. Regardless of the industry, Campaign Managers’ business and marketing decisions always revolve around the goal of the campaign while ensuring that the client’s brand and identity is upheld.
Campaign Managers are expert strategists, strong problem-solvers, critical thinkers, and negotiators. They must also be exemplary leaders and elite communicators, able to foster a positive and successful work environment where employees feel guided and supported.

Excellent verbal and written communication is a must-have for Campaign Managers, as they meet and negotiate with company executives, business partners and investors who can make a major impact on a campaign’s resources. Excellent communication is also needed to lead their teams in solving all technical and business problems through innovative solutions. Presentation and professional speaking skills may also be important, as Campaign Managers manage stakeholders, deal with client facing teams and business leaders.
