Job Description

The Product Marketing Manager will develop and execute multi-channel marketing initiatives to drive optimal guest and revenue yield for their product portfolio, overseeing Galapagos, Amazon and Peru. Galapagos alone represents nearly one-third of LEX’s annual guest count and nearly 25% of annual revenue, and is a key destination for first-time expedition travelers.

The LEX Marketing team is fast-paced, dynamic and creative, comprised of several Marketing Managers driving all prospecting/lead generation, retention and reactivation initiatives across multiple channels. Reporting to the CMO, the Marketing Manager will oversee all revenue generation and marketing expense management for their products. This individual will be hands-on, detail-oriented, highly-analytical and an integral part of the Marketing team, working in close collaboration with Product Development and Creative teams to effectively differentiate and communicate LEX’s offerings in the consumer and trade marketplaces.
