Meet the Dynamic and Dedicated Leaders of the RevC Revolution
Richard Marques, CEO
Richard Marques always knew he wanted to work in the advertising industry. When other kids were watching Saturday morning cartoons, Richard was glued to the TV, watching infomercials. This early exposure to marketing and advertising gave him the background needed to find success in this industry.
Boasting a natural understanding of technology and advertising, Richard graduated with a bachelor’s degree in advertising from the University of Florida, followed by several successful internships in the music industry. He is a distinguished member of the Forbes Technology Council, an invite-only position that is given to highly respected tech leaders and executives in the industry. He is also a part of the Gulf Coast CEO Forum and is a highly sought-after speaker, presenter, and native advertising expert who has shared his knowledge and experience throughout the world.
While his career with RevC began with Marketing & Operations, Richard quickly rose through the ranks, rising from Chief Marketing Officer to Vice President of Marketing before serving as Chief Operations Officer for seven years. Since taking on the role of CEO in 2018, Richard has helped the company transition from being a seven-year-old startup into the tech-driven, native advertising juggernaut it is today.
