RIESTER Employees Surprise CEO with Collective 'Look' for Agency 25th Anniversary

PHOENIX, March 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- RIESTER, a full-service creative agency, was pioneered 25 years ago today, by President and CEO Tim Riester at the ripe age of 22. From day one, Tim has inspired and energized everyone who has crossed his path. Today, RIESTER's more than 100 employees affectionately suited up in 'RIESTER red' to express their admiration, respect and love for the man whose pursuit for excellence and optimal client service is contagious.

Employees applaud Tim Riester for 25 years in business.

The appearance of every 'RIESTERite' in the same attire took Tim by surprise and inspired an impromptu speech. "I dreamt we would do great advertising, but I never dreamt we would do this much great advertising for so many amazing clients," said Riester. "My goal is to continue to try to create the place that gives the opportunity for you to learn more about the business and do even better work on behalf of our clients. I owe it to all of you to make sure you continue to do great things, in the same way that you've helped me build this wonderful company over the last 25 years."

Over more than two decades, RIESTER has evolved into a full-service digital marketing, advertising and public relations firm providing a complete range of integrated services in brand planning, web and mobile marketing, advertising, media planning and buying, social media and public relations. The agency started in Phoenix but today has offices in Los Angeles and Park City, Utah.

As a testament to Tim's leadership and the agency's excellence, last month RIESTER was honored at the 2014 Addy Awards, bringing home 11 Addys for work in a variety of disciplines including video production, outdoor, promotional materials, social media, mobile applications and websites.  This annual celebration is hosted by the American Advertising Federation and is the premier industry honor recognizing creative excellence in the art of advertising.

RIESTER is the agency of record for multiple regional and national clients including; McDonalds, Gilead Sciences, Herdez, Idahoan Foods, La Victoria, Medicis Pharmaceutical Company, MidFirst Bank, PacifiCorp, Pfizer, Veterinary Pet Insurance, Voskos Greek Yogurt and Zeltiq Coolsculpting.  

RIESTER has been recognized again and again by the American Advertising Federation, named the fastest growing, privately held advertising and public relations agency in the country by Inc. Magazine four consecutive years. Creativity Magazine listed RIESTER among the Top 20 Creative Agencies to Watch in America. In 2012, RIESTER was listed among Forbes' Top 100 Global Agencies that Know Social Media and Google.
