Forte- The Collective was founded in 2010 by business partners, Rainier de Ocampo and Mark Quest under the original name, RAINDEO BEAUTIFUL.
Prior to their convergence, each partner had their own independent marketing agencies.
In 2008, Rainier de Ocampo started RAINDEO Marketing Group in Chicago. His focus was on strategic marketing and creative for the automotive, healthcare, education, real estate, sports and entertainment industries.
Based in Los Angeles, owner Mark Quest launched BEAUTIFUL in 2005 which managed marketing and promotional programs for several clients in fashion, sports, music and non-profit.
With over 25 years of combined marketing experience, de Ocampo and Quest also held manager and director-level roles with the likes of The Los Angeles Film School, True Religion Jeans, University of Chicago Booth School of Business, Audiobahn Car Audio, AmeriSource Bergen, ALBA Chrome Wheels and Keep A Child Alive.
When they converged in 2010 and relocated their headquarters to downtown Los Angeles, they combined their marketing experiences under one company and now offer their clients and strategic partners full-scale, comprehensive marketing services.
In January 2012, they officially renamed the company to Forte- The Collective. Their new name is a representation of the continued growth of their agency– a collection of talented, experienced and dedicated individuals who are experts in their fields.
