Tim Reeves, CEO
A former journalist, Tim was chief communications advisor to Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Ridge from 1995-2001. He oversaw the press and marketing strategies that helped to make the Ridge Administration one of the most successful in Pennsylvania history. Tim joined Neiman in 2001. He became president in 2004, CEO in 2008 and majority owner in 2010. Tim led Neiman’s Philadelphia migration, and along the way helped to craft noteworthy communication and business strategies and won national awards. But his greatest pride is the caliber of people— professionally and personally—who have joined Neiman from across the nation. Tim is honored every day by their personal and professional commitment to Neiman’s quest to build a great national agency. Tim’s unique history makes him a sought-after advisor to prominent executives and public figures, and his confidential strategic business and PR counsel is available on call to Neiman’s clients. They have Tim’s cellphone number— and they use it.
Amy Muntz, President & Head of Strategic Planning

Digging, studying, analyzing, interviewing, watching, learning—all in an effort to uncover essential truths, insights that form the basis of powerful brand engagements that resonate with consumers. Amy brings over 25 years of brand marketing experience and, most recently, she’s led planning efforts for Capital BlueCross, Insight Pharmaceuticals and the Pennsylvania Department of Health.

Mike Raetsch, VP, Director of Client Services
After spending 15 years in New York and Chicago, it was a homecoming for this eastern Pennsylvania native—Mike grew up in Reading. Mike came to Neiman from leadership posts in some of the world’s largest agency networks, most recently as SVP, Group Account Director on the Verizon business at McCann Erickson New York. During his time on Verizon, Mike enjoyed a dynamic five year run through the thick of a wireless revolution, helping to oversee a $1 billion marketing budget that spanned across promotional, brand, entertainment/sports content and B2B messaging. Additionally, Mike was at the center of Verizon’s agency partner network, helping to lead and facilitate collaboration across 14 partner agencies. Prior to McCann, Mike was instrumental in helping to lead the Wrigley business as VP Account Director at Energy BBDO. Mike’s passion lies in driving powerful brand experiences that deliver results. In addition to Verizon and Wrigley, he has helped to do just that across a dynamic group of brands including Microsoft, Bass, Rolling Rock, Dos Equis and Black & Decker. Neiman recruited Mike from New York in May 2011.

Rich Wakefield, Executive Creative Director
He is a self-described Army brat. Rich’s father is a retired three-star general, and Rich learned some of his most valuable agency skills as a child, moving into new communities every few years with his military family.

Rich has worked in places like Vancouver, San Francisco and Atlanta, for clients such as Kia Motors, Humana and Dell. Before his stint in Cairo, Rich was an Executive Creative Director at BBDO on AT&T. Rich’s Neiman tenure has included oversight of creative campaigns for Sunoco, Dietz & Watson and the National Constitution Center. Rich came to Neiman in September 2011.

Jen Gordon, Group Business Lead
Jen joined Neiman Group in November 2010, after a year on the broadcast side at Blue Visual. Prior to her production gig, she was an account director at both STICK and MOVE and Red Tettemer. It was while leading accounts like Simple Shoes and The Jersey Shore Alliance that Jen really honed her skills as an “all around account gal,” handling everything from strategy to media planning to the occasional copywriting gig. While at Red Tettemer, Jen initiated a merchandising program for the Commonwealth’s Tourism Campaign, and actually sold 18 dozen “Ready/Set/Go.” t-shirts during her very first meeting with HMSHost at a Burger King on the turnpike. Before Philly, Jen got her education on the NY ad scene. Her fascination with NY started when she spent the summer after her junior year with a fake ID and an internship at Maury Povich. From then on, it was all about NY. But after 10 years at shops like Ogilvy, Draft and Grey Entertainment, and working on brands like HBO, Showtime and Bravo...it was time to come home. Jen joined the Neiman team in 2010.
