Posted On February 1, 2018

RjM, a marketing agency based in Jackson, Michigan, was recently presented with 18 prestigious advertising awards at the 2017 Marketing Communications Agency Network (MCAN) annual ceremony held on January 20, 2018 in Daytona Beach, Florida. The awards were granted for marketing & advertising projects encompassing a variety of categories including radio, publication, print advertising, websites, business-to-business and business-to-consumer campaigns.

The esteemed recognition demonstrated RjM’s diverse skill set and ability to grow customers 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 historic brochure, and Modern Machine Tool’s website.

Several of their distinctions were for work completed for businesses and organizations in the Jackson area. Accolades for Experience Jackson’s responsive website and interactive campaign featuring the trail system in Jackson County were among the awards.  

RjM was also honored for work done outside of the Jackson community. Several accolades for projects completed for Union Bank were received, including a gold award for a direct mail piece that was part of the campaign to launch their newest branch in Ada, Michigan. A number of awards were taken home for projects RjM completed for Maryland-based continuing care retirement community, Broadmead. Distinctions included multiple direct mail and email pieces created for their expansion campaign.

“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.
