Biography

Jimmie Ruggerio specializes in helping commercial and non-profit organizations of all sizes, from start-ups to Fortune 100, meet their marketing and communications objectives. Over the last four decades, he has guided thousands of high-profile IR and corporate projects to successful completion.

Spending the bulk of his career in the communications industry, Jimmie offers a wealth of experience in the energy, AEC (Architecture, Engineering & Construction) and legal sectors, as well as transportation, healthcare and non-profit organizations. He joined Origin as Founder Jim Mousner’s first partner, ready and willing to help guide a young staff and manage the growing firm’s client relationships.

Over the past 15 years, Jimmie has played the role of partner with aplomb. Equal parts papa bear and good ol’ boy, his strength and integrity are an example to Origin’s people and a benefit to our many long-term clients.

Jimmie’s illustrious career includes more than 40 years of sales management in the typography, commercial printing and design industries. He is a proud graduate of Stephen F. Austin State University and a strong supporter of the SPCA and the TKE Education Foundation (you can see his paddle in his office). And his loyalty to the St. Louis Cardinals reaches back to the Houston Buffs—the championships-winning farm team that fed the Cards. Jimmie is a non-hunting gun aficionado who loves his kids, most people, all animals and golf.
