The Creative Asset Manager handles everything related to marketing assets, including acquiring, cataloging, and protecting them. You will be responsible for coordinating and maintaining all brands assets as well as maximizing the value of the DAM by promoting its benefits and effectively streamlining the ways of working, across several systems and departments. This could include video and audio files, pictures, creative work, artwork, etc. It could encompass financial data, intellectual property, or marketing materials.

Here’s where you’ll be focusing:

Creative Asset Managers, as you might imagine, are responsible for handling an organization’s marketing assets. This could include ensuring digital files are named and stored appropriately in a digital library. It also typically entails developing strategies for managing these assets. But the role also entails managing how these digital assets interact with employees and the public, including keeping file permissions and usage rights up to date.
You will utilize a digital asset management platform to manage files or other digital assets. Think of the Asset Manager as a librarian for digital files – but that is only a part of the role. The role is highly collaborative; you will work with marketing departments, banners teams, martech, media, IT, end users, and other interdepartmental teams.
You will manage more than just the technology, also the people and processes that interact with our creative assets.
