Meet the Principals of Rich Marketing
M. COURT RICH, Agency Principal
What’s the M stand for? M is for Marketing! Court has spent his entire career in pursuit of marketing excellence. From the client-side, agency, research, and media, Court brings a multi-tiered approach to finding what works. It helps that Court’s an ambidextrous contrarian. While Court’s left brain is crunching numbers, his right brain is making it branded and beautiful. His contrarian nature ensures your campaign will always be a step ahead of conventional wisdom.
Active in the Seattle advertising community, Court has served on the board of directors for the American Marketing Association and Seattle Advertising Federation. Court has an MBA from Seattle University with an emphasis in marketing.
For the record, Court shoots pool left, swings clubs right, paints left, plays tennis right, skis down and across, argues left and right.
KAREN RICH, Agency Principal
Karen is the player that everyone wants on their team. A tireless competitor who can see the whole field based on her journalism, advertising, and marketing background, she’s passionate about helping clients succeed through strategic and integrated media buys based on their objectives and goals. Coming from traditional media — yet an early adopter of social and digital media — Karen knows the tactics and the latest strategies better than anyone.
As a leader in her community, Karen has consulted and served on many non-profit boards in the Seattle area. A member of the American Marketing Association and the Seattle Advertising Federation, Karen graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Communication and Marketing from the prestigious Edward R. Murrow College of Communication at Washington State University where she still advises today.
Karen gets her energy from all things artistic and clever. She’s Sandberg in the office, Martha in the home, Lindsey in the lodge (ask her about Washington’s only ladies’ ski race team), and Ada Lovelace on the field supporting all things STEM as a fierce Robotics Mom.
