Douglas M. Risch founded DMR Events, Inc. in 1987, becoming the starting point of this journey specializing in Front of House Temporary Staffing. In 1993, DMR expand the staffing model to include Culinary Back of the House Staffing; which then bloomed to include Professional Chefs. Today DMR represents some of the most qualified hospitality professionals in the St. Louis Metropolitan Area. Working with the majority of area Food Service Management companies and 50 self-managed corporate accounts, DMR is recognized as the premier supplier of hospitality staffing talent as we finish 2017. And 2018 is projected to expand our local and national footprint of these services.
Beginning in 2013, fueled by the love of music, DMR partnered with Avery Risch Artist Management, to showcase his ability to identify talent and the organizational expertise to be a catalyst to an artist’s success. Recognizing that major pop entities began moving their writing and publishing business units into Nashville, we moved this entity there in 2016. Risch Group, spearheaded by Avery, is quickly becoming a force in the emerging artist field of pop music.
As 2016 began, some major changes to DMR Events brought another alignment to the ever-expanding reach of Risch. Owner/Founder Douglas M. Risch, acquired all outstanding stock of DMR Events, Inc. to assume complete ownership of the 30-year-old company. This returned DMR full circle and back to private family ownership.
2017 saw what is believed to be the culmination of the planning of the previous 4 years. Douglas stepped away from the day-to-day operation of DMR Events, Inc. Douglas assumed the Managing Partner position of all companies under Risch Group llc, as Avery stepped away from Risch Group to take the position of Personal Assistant to Pat Corcoran, CEO of Haight Brand Management. Haight is the driving management of Chance the Rapper based in Chicago.
