Cary, NC — July 20, 2012 – As the R+M clock turns 20 this year, the brand experience agency eyes the future by naming Greg Norton the agency’s new president. Beverly Murray, who founded the agency in 1992, will remain CEO.
Norton, previously R+M’s executive vice president, joined the agency in 2004. The change in title indicates Norton’s significant impact on the agency over the last several years, from the refinement of internal processes to the addition of strategic clients. Also, the new title better reflects his evolving role in the agency’s growth strategy.
Although originally focused on a client services role, his responsibilities have evolved to encompass agency operations, client development and strategic planning alongside Murray. Today, the duo’s “divide and conquer” approach is a perfect reflection of their collaborative chemistry and respect for the strengths each brings to the table.
“When Greg first joined R+M, we knew that two factors would be critical to our success,” shared Founder and CEO, Beverly Murray. “First, we shared the same values, and we have allowed them to be our guide even when times were tough. Second, our expertise was different but complementary, and we have trusted those differences down an untraveled path. And, it has been on those factors we have continued to grow the agency. I could not be more thrilled to have Greg by my side.”
R+M creates experiences that get people talking about brands that positively impact our health, well-being and social responsibility. The agency’s whole-brand approach leverages traditional tactics alongside unconventional approaches that connect clients with their customers. Though the agency has garnered its share of local and national recognition, it’s most proud of the fact that 80% of its growth comes from referrals. It’s the result of client partnerships built on trust, going above and beyond, delivering, debating and respect. R+M is proud to be Referral Grown. Get activated at rmagency.com.
