Headquartered in St. Louis, Raleigh and Sherri Ragan lead a dedicated team of talented professionals who make marketing and corporate communications EASY for companies all over the country. Our decades of expertise, full-service solutions, and rapid turnaround times help companies succeed.
Raleigh brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise in graphic design, corporate communications, and project management. For more than two decades, he has led the team at The Ascend Group and served as President & Chief Miracle Worker, helping clients bring projects to life, often on impossible deadlines.
When he’s not busy working on client projects, Raleigh likes to spend time with his family or recharge by running or mountain-biking through the woods and fields of a nearby 550+ acre park. A film buff and lover of the written word, Raleigh writes novels in his spare time and is currently shopping a thriller.
Sherri brings more than 20 years experience in advertising, marketing, and corporate communications in areas such as packaged goods, services, and nonprofits. She has served in leadership roles in international advertising and marketing firms for fortune 500 companies and nonprofits such as M&M/Mars, AT&T, and Missouri Botanical Gardens. Most recently, Sherri served as the Director of Strategic Marketing and Communication for a private school where she developed and implemented new brand messaging along with comprehensive recruitment marketing and communication plans. Through this work, her team helped grow enrollment 38%. 
In her free time, Sherri likes spending time with family and friends, gardening, walking in the woods, biking, trying new recipes, spending time on her standup paddleboard, reading a good book, and relaxing.
