Hi, my name is Jonathan & I am proud to consider myself native to the Jefferson County Area. Both my family & I grew up here, so we all find a special connection to the people here.
Because of my connection to Jefferson County, I decided to attend SUNY Jefferson where I found a love for Marketing & soon thereafter received an Associate's in Business Administration in 2016. During my time at SUNY Jefferson, I worked for the IT Department where I learned the ins & outs of technical problem solving, client relations, & networking.
Since a child, I have had a heart for people & their success. When I am not on the job, I spend most of my time volunteering, fundraising, coordinating public events, & working with after-school & child-development programs. So, when I was asked to join the RBM family as the Client Care Specialist, I knew this career was going to be a perfect fit for me. Utilizing both my desire to see Upstate NY grow & my desire to see people becoming the best they can be has pushed me forward & is my daily motivator.
I look forward to helping you develop your business using creative, innovative, & highly intentional advertising & brand awareness strategies.
Hi, I'm Chris, and I'm a big family guy (father of six!). While my various management positions through the years have had many commitments and responsibilities, my passion in work has always been to build a team that is like family, and not simply a collection of co-workers.
I previously worked for 18.5 years at SpringDrive Graphics, most of it as the Quality Assurance Manager. My focus there was Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM), which included project management, which often involved multiple simultaneous product deployments with companies around the world. Also, I headed up the creation and maintenance of operations manuals, employee training, and customer support, and consulted in DCIM software development.
I bring my blend of passion and commitment to Runningboards Marketing so that, together, we can build a brand driven by community, elevating all who come in contact with us, and having a lot of fun doing it!
