When choosing an agency partner, it's critical that you work well with the team. After all, our work comes directly from the talents of the staff. Our connections are not only to our clients, but to our community and each other. We're big enough to bring the skills you need, small enough to maintain nimble response times and that personal connection. We like it that way. And we think you will too.
Meet The Team
As the next President to take over the helm at RJM, Donovan is looking towards the next 40 years. With a background that blends both the strategic and the creative, he continues to oversee the work within the agency. Starting his career at RJM, he’s been involved in award winning campaigns for clients such as the Michigan Department of Corrections, County National Bank, Great Lakes Caring, and Broadmead, among many. A Jackson native and father of two, Donovan gives back to his community by serving on a variety of boards over the years such as Junior Achievement of the Michigan Edge, MCAN, and MIS Cares. Even with a background in web design and development, Donovan maintains an undying love for manual transmissions.
Having worked at RJM since 2008, Andrea serves as our Marketing Specialist – our jack of all trades – thanks to her extensive background and experience in the advertising industry. Andrea spends the majority of her time handling Google Analytics, managing digital advertising across multiple media channels, and curating content for clients like Broadmead, Krupa’s Boat Mart, Jackson Oven Supply, and TAC Manufacturing. Her analytical skills come into play when she creates monthly reports gauging the effectiveness of digital campaigns and providing strategies for improvement. When not working, this long-time resident of Jackson’s countryside enjoys spending time with her family, including her husband, daughter, and four “fur babies” – all of which are rescues.
Rebecca is the Financial Controller at RJM. She has a background in business management and accounting, with a concentration on finance. She began her career in the field of manufacturing and process control, and made the switch into advertising in 2017. Rebecca has worked with the Michigan Department of Transportation and has done volunteer work at Cascades Humane Society and the Jackson Interfaith Shelter, as well as serving as Treasurer for the Grass Lake Sportsman’s Club. The mom of three German Shepherds and a tortoiseshell cat, she practices throwing frisbees and tennis balls on a daily basis. In her free time, you can find her cooking, working on her fitness, or practicing her aim with her Glock.
As the copywriter for RJM, Katelyn has a knack with words that has brought many gold awards home to RJM. Her previous experience at Heart of America Group in Moline, IL prepared her well for the transition she made into the advertising field with RJM. With Heart of America, she managed social media campaigns and organic social content, as well as developed print and radio campaigns for a number of in-house restaurants and hotels. A Michigan transplant, Katelyn has quickly grown an appreciation for the Jackson community, so much so she adopted the highway that runs along her family farm.
As the graphic designer and videographer for RJM, Erica has a creative mind that penetrates all forms of media she produces – digital, print, and video. Having graduated from Grand Valley State University, she is well versed in website design, typography, and digital photography. A strong supporter of the Jackson community, Erica enjoys attending local events and learning about the rich history of the area. When she’s not exercising her creative abilities, Erica is probably spending time with friends, family, and her two dogs, or visiting her mom in Florida.
Digital Media Coordinator
As the Digital Media Coordinator for RJM, Alyssa serves as a key part of the digital media team. She helps to strategize and place media across all digital channels – social media, Google, Bing, Pandora, Spotify, and digital billboards. Alyssa’s biggest strengths are her ability to analyze campaign data to make strategic changes to messaging, audience, and placement to ensure the best outcome for RJM’s clients. When she’s not executing impressive marketing campaigns, Alyssa can be found playing water polo, discovering the best iced coffee in Jackson, or adding to her incredible vintage clothing collection.
