Robyn Sachs named to “Top 25 CEO’s You Need to Know” by Gazette of Politics and Business

ROCKVILLE, MD – September 5, 2008 – Robyn Sachs, president and CEO of RMR & Associates, has been chosen as one of the leading CEOs in Maryland by the Gazette of Politics and Business’s “25 Top CEOs You Need To Know” list. The special report, which appeared in the Gazette of Politics and Business’s today’s issue, profiles executives from across Maryland who have been outstanding examples of top performing CEOs. Sachs’ recognition helps to illustrate that women can rise through the ranks and become leaders in the world of business.


Sachs began her career in 1984 as the first account executive of a small, retail-focused agency called RMR Advertising. With assistance from her family, she bought the agency in 1987, became its president, added a public relations element, and refocused its mission to serve clients in the business-to- business and tech arena.


Under Sachs’ direction, RMR & Associates Inc. has become an award-winning, dynamic, and consistently successful integrated marketing and public relations firm who has gained significant recognition within the metro Washington, DC area. The majority of RMR’s work over the past twenty years has been within the business-to-business market. The Washington Business Journal has consistently recognized RMR in its Top 25 Public Relations Firm listings from 1991 to 2007. October 2007 marked the official 20-Year Anniversary of RMR, and aside from award-winning client service and creative work, this includes nearly 400 corporate roll-outs that RMR has implemented.


“It is a great honor to be recognized as one of the Maryland’s leading CEOs,” Sachs said. “I have been in this business for over 20 years and have definitely overcome many challenges as a business owner. But hard work, dedication, and a positive attitude have helped me to succeed.”


Sachs has won many awards, including the prestigious Entrepreneur of the Year Award in 1998 and The Washington Business Journal’s Top 25 Woman Business Owners every year since 1991. Robyn has achieved significant success in the business arena, while also continuing to be active in both her community, larger Montgomery County, and the state of Maryland over the years. An example of this is Robyn’s position as an appointed Mentor by Montgomery County.
