Mary Kay Greer

Mary Kay leads RMS’ marketing and communications efforts, which entails overseeing media relations, public affairs, internal communications, philanthropic initiatives, academic and community relations and special events. She also directs the firm’s global corporate marketing and branding activities and manages its digital and social media platforms. Among her varied responsibilities, Mary Kay provides marketing communications support to the firm’s business development, client relations and forest sustainability teams. This entails contributing and developing both design and print collateral, thought leadership materials, educational and promotional videos and a variety of communications relating to RMS’ environmental, social and governance agenda including its annual global sustainability report. She also organizes the firm’s annual client meetings and oversees both the RMS “Forester of the Future Fund” program, which is operated in conjunction with North Carolina State University, as well as “The Craig Blair – RMS Forestry Scholarship”, through which the firm partners with other universities that offer forestry as a field of study. The two programs are key elements of RMS’ diversity, equity and inclusion initiative. They provide funding and paid internships to forestry students with a particular emphasis on members of demographic populations that historically have been under-represented in the profession. Mary Kay also manages RMS’ Community Roots program, including its partnership with Habitat for Humanity, which builds homes for families in need in areas where the company has operations. In this capacity, she manages RMS’ project-level funding commitments, organizes employee volunteers to help with home construction activities, and leads efforts to generate additional financial and in-kind donations through a variety of forestry partnerships. Prior to assuming her current role, Mary Kay directed RMS’ client relations, client servicing and investor communications functions. She has more than 26 years of progressive experience in institutional timberland investment client relations and marketing. Mary Kay is active in a number of local charities in the Birmingham, Alabama area and attended Auburn University of Montgomery.
