About the Owner

For nearly 20 years, Rick Laney (@ricklaney) served as director and vice president of two Chicago-based holding companies where he successfully launched new companies and products, more than doubled market share and revenue for existing companies, and engineered marketing and investor relations strategies for successful initial public offerings (IPOs) on NASDAQ. As a client, Laney managed multi-million dollar advertising, marketing and public relations budgets and worked with some of the largest ad agencies in the country ̶ but he always felt as though those agencies had no idea what it was like to be a client. After a short stint as vice president of a public relations firm, he realized the traditional agency model was outdated and broken. "I started Rick Laney Marketing because there was a need for a new kind of agency - the kind of agency I had been looking for but couldn't find because it didn't exist," Laney said. "We built Rick Laney Marketing from the ground up around the needs of the customers we serve. The entire business model is different - we don't bill hourly, we meet deadlines and we adhere to budgets - things you would expect but rarely see in the agency world." His approach to marketing struck a chord with companies and organizations looking for tangible results from their marketing investments. Today, Rick Laney Marketing’s clients include McGhee Tyson Airport, Knox Area Rescue Ministries (KARM), Magnum Venus Products, Protomet, Copper Cellar Family of Restaurants, Home Builders Association of Greater Knoxville, RDI technologies, PTM Edge, Senior Home Assistance and many others. "Rick Laney Marketing helps clients thrive," Laney said, "and who doesn't want to thrive?"
