When Tommy Ramey founded The Ramey Agency in 1985, he launched more than a marketing firm. He created a culture. Tommy didn’t just seek out talent, but talented people who loved working together. But that people-first dynamic still drives everything at Ramey. That’s why nearly half of our tightly knit staff has been at Ramey 10+ years. From our client work to community service, we reach higher together.
Tommy wanted to ensure that his people were empowered to not only do good work for our clients, but also good works in the community. In addition to generous vacation time, each full-time employee gets 40 hours of paid volunteer time.
The Ramey Foundation was created to foster the next generation of talent in both marketing and the culinary arts. This $1 million endowment has awarded scholarships to dozens of motivated students at Mississippi State University, Jackson State University and the University of Mississippi for more than 20 years.
We also encourage our own employees to pursue their dreams (or conquer fears) outside of the agency. Ramey Reach Higher Grants fund impassioned employees to achieve meaningful milestones from serving children in Haiti and Kenya to becoming certified sailors and yoga instructors.
