As exception services manager at Merkle RMG, I’m proud to be part of a corporate culture that supports its community year round. At Christmas, the company participates in the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program. Every summer, we hold a food drive to feed Maryland children who don’t have access to their schools’ free meal programs over summer break. And with fall fast approaching, we recently came together to help a local church collect school supplies for needy children throughout Washington County, Maryland, where our facility is located.
Every day at Merkle RMG, we’re entrusted with the two most sensitive things in response management — money and data. And we don’t take this responsibility lightly. It’s our mission to maintain the trust and satisfaction
Today, I’m excited to introduce and welcome Amy Bobrick to Merkle RMG as our vice president of strategy.

At Merkle RMG, teamwork and cohesion are vital to making our processes seamless and efficient. Our company is all about strong relationships at every level — not only with our clients and their donors, but also among employees.

Our work at Merkle Response Management Group (RMG) is so much more than the daily operations of our response management services. It’s also about building partnerships and supporting nonprofits in their missions to do good. As an account manager, I’ve grown close relationships with my clients and have come to be truly invested in their causes. Recently, my work with one nonprofit led to the experience of a lifetime – a chance to take part in a mission trip to the Philippines with Operation Smile.
