The team at Concept Envy are thick as thieves. When we decide to add new employees to our Milwaukee or Florida offices, we search high and low for people who are never satisfied, who never settle for mediocre. As we started to plan to hire a Business Development Manager we were hoping to find someone with a spark and excitement for the possibilities that lay in front of them at Concept Envy.
And we found that in Rachael Ruggles. Rachael’s warm, energetic and over-achiever personality fits in perfectly with the Concept Envy crew. We’re thrilled to have her as Concept Envy’s Business Development Manager and invite you to learn more about the pure awesome she brings to our team below!
Let’s start easy, what do you like about working directly with clients?
I love that I get to be the face of the company and go out into the world to be a solution provider and problem solver, representing our brand. Whether it is B2B or B2C I get the opportunity to build relationships with people and help to bring value to their cause. No matter what the end solution is for a client, my goal is always the same – happy customers.
How does working in the home build industry compare to working at a digital marketing agency?
In the building industry, I had the chance to make someone’s dream home a reality, which was pretty spectacular. However, in the digital marketing world, I’m only really switching gears slightly. Now I have the opportunity to help businesses across many industries build a dream marketing campaign and watch them succeed doing their dream work!
So, why marketing, specifically?
The heart of a business’s success truly relies on around how well they market themselves. We inspire the ideas to help businesses create an ongoing strategy to engage audiences into forming and maintaining a relationship with their brand. We build incredible content to accompany it, representing who they are and what makes them different than their competition. Every day I get to be a part of a new idea, a new cause, and a new mission – one that is unique to every business. One that will help a business to thrive, grow and expand. No one day is the same. But that’s what always keeps me learning!
Alright – let’s have some fun. If you’re not at work, where are you?
In the Summer, I prefer to be on the lake boating/kayaking. Elkhart Lake is one of my favorite places to escape on the weekends. I also love to golf, run along the lake with my pup, and sip cocktails with friends on a patio. In the winter I love my kettlebell gym and snowboarding (when I can get out West).
Who is someone you look up to either personally or professionally or both?
Hands down, my dad. Personally and professionally he is my rock. My favorite quotes of his that I still live by today: “Any decision is better than no decision”, “nothing changes if nothing changes”, and “repetition is the motor of learning”. Good man, my daddio.
Alright, so as we wrap up, what are you excited about as you take on your new role at Concept Envy?
This team rocks. We may be small… but dammit we are mighty (can I say that on here?). I am blown away when I sit in on our team’s creative meetings. It truly is incredible how they think and the awesome ideas they come up with! The team at Concept Envy does not settle. They’re always pushing each other to take an idea or a campaign to the fullest. It’s cool to watch.
I’ve been struck by the team’s dedication to work that is honest and really geared at delivering the best for each client. I am thrilled to be a part of this team.
