BY THE DMA BUSINESS-TO-BUSINESS COUNCIL
NEW YORK, March 11, 2003 – The Direct Marketing Association's (The DMA) Business-to-Business (B-to-B) Council will present Richard Rosen, president & CEO, AlloyRed, with its "B-to-B Marketer of the Year" Award. Rosen will be honored at the Thursday luncheon held during The DMA's Annual Direct Marketing to Business (DMB) Conference, which will be held March 19-21 at the Caribe Royale Resort Suites in Orlando, Florida.
"Richard has perfected the art of integrated marketing that, in many ways, goes against the main stream," said Bernice Grossman, president, DMRS Group, and Chair of The DMA B-to-B Council. "He is a true pioneer in the refined art of direct response advertising and justly deserves this recognition."
An internationally acclaimed authority on customer acquisition and retention, Richard Rosen founded Rosen/Brown Direct (now AlloyRed) in 1990. As President & CEO, Rosen created brand building and direct response marketing campaigns for clients such as Primavera Systems, 3M, Lucent, IBM and TaylorMade Golf. Under his direction the agency has evolved and refined the methodology they have termed Brand-Interaction Advertising. This model proved to build brand and demand faster with less money.
Prior to starting AlloyRed, Rosen held various marketing positions at Kawasaki Motors, Unicover, and Lanier Business Products.
He is a frequent speaker on marketing and return on investment in terms of sales and brand equity at direct marketing events, and a sought-after consultant for businesses around the world.
Rosen also is active in community and supports nonprofit organizations such as the Clackamas Women's Shelter and Committed Partners for Youth. He also serves as an advisor to the Jewish Federation of Portland and is a former board member of the Oregon Humane Society and Vision Northwest.
