Our dreamers and doers

We are passionate people–a boisterous blend of seasoned
pros and budding talent. This diverse mixture means we are constantly learning from each other. We keep each other sharp—and grounded.

Every department collaborates on behalf of clients and their campaigns. Despite our different backgrounds, we do have a few things in common, namely our involvement in the community, our appetite for results and our enduring love for birthday cake.

    President – Director of Public Relations

    Chris Holben is a natural born communicator. So it was only natural that in 1991, at the age of 31, he ran for office in his home state of Michigan. And if not for a few hanging chads, he just might have won. Fortunately, he was able to scratch his political itch as a business and marketing adviser to Governor Pete Wilson, whom he also worked for during Wilson’s days in the U.S. senate.

    These days, Chris works a few blocks east of the Capitol building at the RSE offices in midtown Sacramento, where he manages the business and RSE’s public relations team, oversees business development, and provides strategic counsel on behalf of existing clients.
