Founder and Owner
Jean Marie Saidler is founder and owner of JMS Marketing, Inc., a turnkey marketing agency located in Crystal Lake, IL. Born and raised in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Jean Marie is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin with a degree in Business Marketing.
Her career in Marketing began in Milwaukee at the Miller Brewing Company, as Corporate Marketing Coordinator/Bottler Programs and then Assistant Marketing Services Manager for the company. Additional positions within her career include:
Manager, Corporate Trade Shaw and Incentive Programs - Seven-Up Company, managing 76 industry tradeshows throughout the country as well as coordination of both national and regional sales meetings for the company.
Tradeshow & Incentive Manager - ACCO International, managing 47 industry Trade Shows and $8 million Sales Incentive Program.
Motherhood prompted Jean Marie to adjust her marketing career in the late 80’s. To remain “close to home”, she became the Executive Director of the Woodstock Chamber of Commerce and Industry in 1987. There, she became instrumental in the creation of the City’s first Economic Development Commission as well as the development of membership programs which generated a 70% increase in business membership for the organization.
After five years in that position, and with the encouragement a local business owner, Jean Marie returned to her passion for corporate marketing and launched JMS Consultations, Inc. in 1992. The company was renamed JMS Marketing 5 years later to better reflect their true scope of business...marketing.
Now in its 29th year, the company has grown to reflect more than consulting and offers both traditional and digital marketing services for regional, national, and international companies.
