kim Kimberlie Ritter-Vice President, Business Manager, Account Executive, Creative Direction, Copywriter – Suffice it to say, that I, like many small-business owners, wear many hats. My quick-wit and clever antics give way to some pretty grabbing headlines and great story lines. Copywriting comes very naturally to me, as I have always been a very apt writer and clear and concise speaker. I definitely do not have difficulty getting my point across, and that has come in handy in the business.

I do, however, put my accounting degree to the test day in and day out managing the financial aspect of the business. Although my personality and that of the typical number-cruncher don’t really jive, I am able to put my social skills to use in the account executive position.

I value my team – my designers, my producers, my vendors and my customers. Without these people, my job would be meaningless. I know this and try to convey this every chance I get. Whether its through my attitude or my appreciation, my guys know how much they mean to me and know that I will work as hard for them as humanly possible. After all, I’m only human.
