  • Existing network of marketing and communications leaders a plus

Atlantic Media Values:

  • Force of Ideas:  At the center of Atlantic Media work are the ideas within our writing.  We believe that ideas – to the good and not – have consequence.  Our highest work is bringing rigor, insight, intellectual integrity, to that ultimate purpose of separating the bad from the good, and giving voice to the latter.
  • Spirit of Generosity:  Atlantic Media seeks in its ranks those with natural disposition toward service and selfless conduct.  Atlantic Media writing should be cut from the same cloth – critical on the merits, but informed by charity and forbearance in measuring motive and personal character.
