There are many moving pieces to take care of when you work in an agency.
Think about it; the marketing team generates to go to the sales team. The sales team draws attention to leads and closes them as customers. The finance team takes care of invoicing and ensures that the client pays the bills promptly.
Then the creative work begins. Account managers ask clients to complete briefs, and marketing/digital experts collaborate on the project. Throughout the process, account managers interact with customers and make sure everyone is happy.
