strategy developer, strategy development specialist, strategy specialist
Explanation:
I have found this definition of Konzepter:
"Niemand weiß genau, was Konzepter eigentlich machen, aber eines ist klar: Sie produzieren dabei unheimlich viel Papier. Angeblich sollen 'Ideen' darin enthalten sein, 'bahnbrechende' sogar. Diese Papiere verursachen auf ihrer Reise überall, wo sie ankommen, Arbeit. Manchmal fließt dafür Geld zurück ins Unternehmen, aber das steht auf einem anderen Blatt."

- which confirmed my suspicions. The first translation that came to mind was strategy developer - but when I wanted to verify it, it turned out that there is a computer called strategy developer.

It might therefore be better to say strategy development specialist or just strategy specialist.

I'm going with this solution because my context didn't show that the person might be a multimedia specialist. Thank you.

multimedia consultant


Explanation:
After an extensive search I could not find an equivalent for the term (which seems to be particulary popular in Switzerland). Following the job description below, however, I think multimedia consultant fits the bill.
