As President and Managing Partner of HomeRun Creative Services in Buffalo, New York, Annette Herrman takes an active role in guiding the progress of each client’s journeys through the maze that is today’s advertising.

Annette’s job is to know enough about all her clients’ products and services, as well as their business plans and goals, to advise and communicate their messages to their target audiences.
Annette’s business partner, Ryan Robe, and she formed HomeRun Creative Services in 2009, but they have worked together since 2004. Anecdotally, the “H” is Herrman and the “R” is Robe in “HomeRun”. Ryan briefly played pro baseball and Annette is apt to say corny one-liners like, “We try to hit a homerun every time!” That’s how our company name was born. Annette has been in advertising, mostly television, since 1981.
