Rauxa Direct Exec Named to DMNews 30 Under 30 List

Gina Alshuler Recognized as Bright Young Superstar in the Direct, Database and Interactive Marketing Industry

COSTA MESA, CA and NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - March 16, 2010) - Rauxa Direct, an innovative direct marketing agency headquartered in Orange County, Calif., today announced that its Senior Vice President of Account Services and leader of its New York operation, Gina Alshuler, has been named to this year's 30 Under 30 list by DMNews. The media outlet's recent issue recognized the best and brightest young superstars in the direct, database and interactive marketing industry for its second annual feature. These successful up-and-comers were judged on their ability to initiate change, drive growth and achieve measurable results for their companies and clients.

In 2001, as a recent college grad looking to earn her way into a Washington, D.C.-based political career, Alshuler took what she thought would be a temporary position as receptionist with a then-new and small agency -- Rauxa Direct. Working closely with Rauxa founder and CEO Jill Gwaltney, Alshuler quickly learned the ropes, demonstrating an innate talent for the direct marketing profession and an exceptional ability to create strong client partnerships. It wasn't long before she found herself moving up the ranks to Junior Account Executive, Senior Account Executive, Account Supervisor and then to her current position as Senior Vice President, Account Services.

"Gina was born to do this and has accomplished more in the past several years than many people achieve in an entire career. A brilliant strategist, visionary thinker and determined go-getter, Gina has the smarts, drive and personality of a seasoned direct marketing professional and a wisdom beyond her years," said Jill Gwaltney, CEO, Rauxa Direct. "We've seen her flourish in this fast-paced business to become a respected leader and knowledgeable expert who believes you can never be too obsessive about client service. This shows in the strong, lasting relationships she's developed with our clients who know that she is always looking ahead to what is best for them, leading the charge to improve results and efficiencies, and driving Rauxa to meet the challenge in the process."

As Senior Vice President, Account Services, Alshuler manages the Account Teams of all four Rauxa offices and has guided the company to $75 million in revenue for an average growth rate of 39% year over year. Less than three years ago she opened Rauxa's East Coast doors with a small New York presence. Under Alshuler's leadership, that office has grown quickly and steadily with 52 employees now handling a number of Fortune 500 accounts and $30 million in revenue, prompting the recent move to its new Manhattan location.


With over ten years in business, Rauxa Direct combines its expertise in Data Analytics, Direct Mail, Interactive, DRTV, Advertising and Multicultural Marketing to construct highly effective, integrated cross-channel campaigns. Innovative and unique in its approach, Rauxa views direct marketing as a creative science that combines imaginative thinking with systematic analysis. Founded by Jill Gwaltney, with the mission of putting client's needs first, this woman-owned business continues to grow, with four offices in the U.S. serving clients in a wide variety of categories.
