Ritchie Marketing’s roots reach back to 1978 when Tom Ritchie planted a stake in the ground as a non-foods broker in Grand Rapids Michigan. In the last 12 years we have acquired four smaller brokerage firms to expand our sales team and manufacturer base.
As of 2019, we have thirty-nine sales professionals working within our organization. While our main office is located in Grand Rapids, MI, we also have a satellite sales office locations in Detroit, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh and Indianapolis. We also have field personnel in Toledo, Louisville, South Bend, Chicago and Milwaukee.
As of January 2019, we have completed our 13th record sales year in a row!
