Posted On March 10, 2020

RJM, a marketing agency based in Jackson, Michigan, was recently presented with several prestigious advertising awards at the 2019 Marketing Communications Agency Network (MCAN) annual ceremony held on January 20, 2020, in New Orleans, LA. The awards were granted for marketing & advertising projects encompassing a variety of categories, including television, radio, publication, print advertising, and consumer direct mailer campaign. In all, RJM was recognized for marketing efforts in 16 different categories for clients throughout the United States, including Broadmead, County National Bank, Experience Jackson, da Vinci, and others.

RJM was also honored with the Herbruck-Fritsche award for their nonprofit work for the Barkley & LuLu Foundation. The award is presented each year to an advertising agency that does exemplary work in their community for a nonprofit organization. RJM partnered with the Barkley & LuLu Foundation because they believed in their mission to save the lives of animals in need of life-saving treatment. RJM helped to amplify their presence in the Jackson community by creating new branding, a responsive website, a brochure, business cards, and a logo.

The esteemed recognition from all the awards received demonstrates RJM’s diverse skill set and ability to craft communities for their clients, regardless of the marketing medium leveraged. This was exemplified by the awards received for projects as diverse as Broadmead’s direct mailer campaign, Experience Jackson’s television campaign, da Vinci’s bus wrap design, and County National Bank’s business-to-business magazine ad campaign series. “We are honored by these accolades and thank our clients for the continued privilege to provide them with award-winning work,” said Donovan Cronkhite, president of RJM.
