Rex Raymond

Managing Partner

Rex was born in Sarasota and relocated to Georgia as a teenager. He played baseball at Young Harris College before moving to Athens, GA, to complete his bachelor’s degree, where he met his wife, Merry Beth. 

A creative entrepreneur, Rex has launched numerous businesses over the past 25 years, all deeply rooted in advertising and marketing. His meticulous attention to detail and tenacious appetite for disrupting the industries he works within have earned him a reputation as the no-nonsense go-to person for achieving results. 

“I’m fortunate to have consistently built strong teams around me. I wouldn’t be where I am today without my employees’ hard work, loyalty and dedication. I’m also grateful for long-term relationships with amazing clients, most of whom have been with my agency for over a decade. That’s all the validation I need.” 

With the merger of Demand Exposure and Grapevine, Rex assumes the role of Managing Partner, freeing him from the day-to-day tasks he previously managed. This newfound flexibility allows him to focus on new business developments and undisclosed large-scale opportunities that will undoubtedly manifest into groundbreaking ventures. 

Rex and Merry Beth returned to Sarasota in 2002 and have two children, Trey and Mollie. Rex is a member of the Field Club and actively participates in and supports several local non-profits, with his favorite being Operation Patriot Support.
