We believe in bringing out the best in people, which is pretty easy to do when you’ve already got the best people.

Investing time and resources into the professional growth of each team member is a major part of our model. We empower, nurture, and challenge our team, and the results speak for themselves. We’re a close-knit, bad ass, fun, and diligent group with an affinity for Beer:30’s (perhaps you know them better as happy hours), and conga lines. You’ll love working with us, because we love working with each other.

Chad Bauer

Managing Director

We haven’t officially received confirmation from scientists, but we’ve got a theory that Chad is proof the advertising gene exists. After earning his B.B.A. in Marketing, Law, & Social Responsibility from Loyola University Maryland; Chad spent the early part of his career working for Hearst Television’s Baltimore flagship station, WBAL-TV 11. After years of being in the corporate world, his entrepreneur mindset drove him to SR&B where he now leads as Managing Director; with plans of growth and expansion for our firm. Chad’s passion for his work is rivaled only by his love for his wife, two sons, family and friends.

Chad has executed over $350 Million in Media Spend over the past 20 years across traditional, experiential, and digital media… and has the network to prove it.
