EAG promotes its former vice president of planning and performance to CMO as agency momentum surges.
EAG, an award-winning advertising & marketing agency located in Kansas City’s Crossroads Arts District, announces Jeff Randolph is promoted to chief marketing officer. This new role recognizes Jeff’s contributions to our agency and to our clients over the past six years.
Jeff will continue being a major contributor to EAG’s leadership team, overseeing the expansion of EAG’s footprint throughout Kansas City and beyond. His drive to not only meet, but exceed our team’s and clients’ expectations is completely aligned with how EAG advises and delivers value to our marketing services.
“From day one, Jeff has embraced his role as a passionate brand advocate, storyteller, team player and purpose-driven marketer, dedicated to bringing the best of EAG to our clients and industry partners,” said Michele Markham, EAG’s president and CEO. “He embodies our values and has played a pivotal role as a magnet, attracting people and clients who share our mission and values. Now as CMO, Jeff is the ideal person to usher our brand into this next stage of growth.”
Jeff has held strategic marketing positions in both large and small advertising agencies, with clients ranging from restaurants and entrepreneurial ventures to multi-national telecom and regional banks. Prior to joining EAG, he oversaw global marketing efforts as the CMO for ARMA International and national brand marketing as the CMO for Camp Fire. Working with these nonprofit organizations let him showcase his talent for doing outstanding work and award-winning campaigns with few resources. Jeff’s the first to unabashedly admit data makes him giddy.
He earned his marketing-focused MBA at Avila University in Kansas City and continues to teach marketing at the graduate level as an adjunct professor. He’s a past president of the Kansas City chapter of the American Marketing Association.
Jeff says, “EAG is an incredible marketing resource for our business-owner clients. I’m so proud of the work we do and results we achieve on their behalf. In my role leading the charge for client planning and performance, I am continually inspired to see our clients’ marketing programs deliver for them. I’m looking forward to doing more of the same for both clients and our agency as we continue shared growth.”
