A CPA and always learning, Rick shepherds the “numbers” side of the agency. Apparently his “can do” attitude is a bit contagious … we’ve all caught it! It’s not that the rest of us have mastered scuba diving and karate. (Yes, he’s a black belt; don’t say we didn’t warn you.) But like Rick, we’re intent on discovery…and on using what we learn to impact the market for every EdgeMark client.
Taking care of business. That could be Doug’s theme song. He’s our day-to-day go-to guy. You might find him spearheading a big marketing project or fishing for new business … less often for largemouth bass, or even tuna or marlin. (We won’t mention the golf balls.) Yes, Doug loves a challenge — and if the challenge belongs to an EdgeMark client, he’s hooked…and so are we.
Part printing guru, part quality assurance specialist, Jerry’s in touch with every marketing project from planning to digital art to mail stream. His motto might well be “accept no excuses,” because he simply doesn’t. He keeps after it until it’s perfect — at work, or on the links, the ballfield, or the ski slopes. He makes it right. Our clients expect it. And all of us follow his lead.

Always calm, and attentive to detail, he keeps things running smoothly on all fronts — a quality clients and coworkers alike appreciate!

A process person with a creative bent, Karen’s intrigued with how things fit together to “work” — from DIY projects to anything having to do with words.

And we’re all committed to that standard.
