Welcome to RT. Please stay awhile. Whether you want to work with us or for us, sticking around is something of a tradition around here. Since 1996, we’ve cared about the work as much as we care about each other.
MEET THE TEAM
Chief Executive Officer
Andrew joined RT as CEO in 2017, taking the baton from founder Tim Rodgers. A 20-plus year veteran of agencies, he’s led Effie-winning, cross-functional teams for TBWA\Chiat\Day, Wunderman, Carmichael Lynch and Leo Burnett. His varied experience gives him a particular understanding of the tension between speed and craft inside a modern creative agency. He’s the father/chauffeur/fan of two very active sport-boys and husband to a very patient wife.
Collectively, Mike’s been crafting work at RT for over 20 years, with valuable stops along the way at Publicis, Cramer-Krasselt and McGarrah Jessee. Growing up in Texas and schooled at Atlanta’s Portfolio Center, his work has been recognized by all the biggest shows from New York to Cannes. His love of writing continues a great tradition of RT wordsmithing. When he’s not leading RT’s talented team, he’s directing and negotiating with twin girls at home.
A 15-year veteran of RT, Laura brings 20-plus years of advertising and digital marketing experience. Her passion for creative problem-solving and innovative advertising has kept her leaning in and fully engaged over the years. She’s also a master practitioner of the lost art of listening. But when the bell rings, the great outdoors are Laura’s playground for biking, hiking and snowboarding, with a particular passion for being in the mountains.
A well-seasoned multi-category expert, Eric leads RT’s engagement planning, data analytics and tactical delivery across all media channels. A native New Yorker, he’s spent over 20 years in the industry working across categories including travel, CPG, retail, agriculture, healthcare and utilities. His experience includes large media-focused agencies such as Initiative and MPG and full-service agencies like Osborn + Barr and R&R Partners. When not in the office chair, he’s most likely to be found at dance competition or studio with his kids.
Carrie has been in the advertising and creative industry for 20 years, spending the last eight years leading every RT people initiative. She’s responsible for attracting, retaining and developing talent in addition to employee engagement and community outreach. Some might even say she’s fiercely protective of our famously family-like culture. When she’s not working for the people of RT, she’s spending time with her fun-loving family or running the trails of St. Louis.
J has been with RT for over 14 years and has over 30 years of financial accounting and reporting experience with both public and privately held companies across a variety of industries. That background makes him perfectly equipped to manage an independently minded agency operating within a global network. Outside of RT, he’s a lifelong musician, the No. 1 fan of his two college-age girls and an avid hiker, backpacker and outdoor sportsman.
