One of the best‑of‑the‑best in B‑to‑B

We’ve been relevant in B2B since 1997.

But don’t just take our word for it.

    Again, your team has been amazing. We've been very pleased with the team members, quality and creativity of the work. This has been one of the best partnerships for ECO in my five years.

    Everyone (including myself) is excited about the work you're doing. You're showing us that B2B can be sexy, and I have no doubt that will continue to open doors for you.

    SCHERMER is an organization that will exceed your expectations, as it did mine. We had an RFP out that SCHERMER participated in. While they were the incumbent, we brought in 3 additional agencies to the final proposal stage. It was my expectation that these larger, national firms would simply outshine SCHERMER. However, I was wrong. The SCHERMER proposal was not only immensely creative and rooted in fact, but it also best leveraged the strengths of our organization.

    As a B2B marketing agency, SCHERMER understands the complex relationships between a manufacturer, the channel and customers. As we developed campaigns to engage prospects and create pull, SCHERMER ensured that my sales team and distribution partners were supported with compelling content that they could actually use.

Jen Alstead

What do whip-cracker and whip-smart have in common? That’d be Jen. Prior to SCHERMER, Jen led project management at tech companies and agencies like Fallon and Gage, where she managed large-scale brand and digital initiatives for clients such as BMW, Nikon, Microsoft, 3M and Honeywell. Jen artfully and diligently manages our agency’s personnel, processes and projects, ensuring we consistently run like a well-oiled App.

Mariann Hohe

VP, STRATEGY & PLANNING

Want to know what your buyers want and brand needs? Ask Mariann. A truly unique marketer, she boasts an MBA, a sixth sense of buyers, and a sick sense of humor. (Sick means good, right?) She’s built brands at companies such as Nabisco, Pillsbury and Land O’ Lakes, as well as at Food and B2B agencies before SCHERMER. Excelling in both creative and analytical thinking, she provides clients with buyer-driven insights and business-building strategies that span GTM, brand, content and digital.
