Meet Our Team
Marketing Solutions Group staffs highly experienced sales professionals in strategic locations throughout the United States. Get to know our sales team and how they can sell for you.
Marketing Solutions Group has endured some of the greatest challenges and changes in the industries – distribution, retail, technology, and consolidation. We not only survived, we thrived – by helping suppliers and customers successfully adapt to a complex and dynamic marketplace.
Marketing Solutions Group was founded in 2001 and is the result of a merger between Roy, Gfeller, Rand & Associates (RGR) and Total Marketing. RGR was formed by Howard Roy in 1977 and Total Marketing was formed by Ralph McMurray in 1976, but our founding partners’ industry experience stretches back nearly 50 years. Get to know their stories, and you’ll get to know a little about the experience and innovation that makes Marketing Solutions Group, LLC one of the United States’ premier sales and marketing agencies.
Howard and Ralph have long been retired, but the proud tradition they started was carried on by their successors Randy Roy and Clark Rand. In the fall of 2016, Clark Rand, after a lifetime dedicated to our business, decided to enter the blissful season of retirement. Rex Stephens who had been with the Company for 12 years, has taken over as President and Owner.
Randy and Rex have continued to grow the Company; in 2016 adding two highly skilled sales people with decades of experience in the automotive industry, Calvin Kaemmerer and Rod Post.
In 2021 a consumer products team of six was added to support our national accounts business. As our company grows our focus remains the same to build strong relationships with our partners and to always deliver outstanding service. Today we are stronger and more diversified than ever.
