Rachel Strong

CFO

Rachel’s keen understanding of human nature has translated tenfold into her role as CFO at Business Marketing Engine, but that understanding has deep roots.

Pre-BME, Rachel jump-started her career as a corrections officer before working in hospitality management. With such unique insights and intuitive marketing skills from the start, she now works with Gabe as an invaluable asset to BME.

When Rachel isn’t hard at work, you can find her whipping up new gluten- and dairy-free recipes in the kitchen, or walking and hiking in local parks.

Danielle Ortiz

General Manager

Danielle first started at Business Marketing Engine in another role.

Since finding her niche in management as BME’s General Manager, Danielle has since grown into and with her passion– and helped other BME team members explore and grow into their own passions and niches.

Danielle relies on four keys to unlock the door to personal success and professional growth:

Constant learning. Active listening. Putting her best foot forward in all that she does. And the quote: “The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams.”

Alanna Longnecker

Creative Director

Alanna has been writing since she could pick up a pencil, and reading for even longer than that. As BME’s Creative Director, she is thrilled to be able to combine her love of all-things creative by writing, leading and furthering her passion for marketing.

She earned her B.S. in Journalism with a minor in Law & Legal Studies from West Virginia University, where she wrote for several newspapers around the state of West Virginia and even got to work with PolitiFact for several months.

She lives in Boulder County, Colorado and spends all her free time snuggling her 14- and 16-year-old dogs, Rosie and Tiger Lily, as well as reading as much as she can and watching weird movies and TV shows. She’s not what anyone would describe as “good” at chess, but she still likes playing it anyway.

Eunice Arriesgado

Lead Project Manager

Eunice lives by a Lou Holtz quote, both in and out of the office: When you stop growing, you start dying. As Business Marketing Engine’s Lead Project Manager, she looks at every day as a learning opportunity, and every hurdle as a chance to expand her knowledge in finding the solution.

Eunice’s path to becoming an integral part of BME didn’t start at the drop of a hat, though. Before joining Team BME, she started growing her roots in BPO and the banking industry, then in customer service, operations management, vendor management and process improvement.

How does she fuel the dedication that keeps her growing? For Eunice, it’s two-fold: In an endless pursuit of passion in which she takes her time enjoying the curiosities of life; and with a family-motivated mindset.

When she’s not perfecting the art of project management, you’ll find Eunice cooking and baking– discovering new recipes that her husband’s and two lovely kids’ delicate tastes will approve of.
