Al Ries & his daughter Laura Ries have been working together as focusing consultants for 18 years.

Ries & Ries was founded in New York in 1994. Three years later, Al & Laura relocated to Atlanta, Georgia.But the Ries team spends most of its time on the road consulting with top corporations around the world from Microsoft to Ford, Disney, Merck, Frito-Lay, and many others.

The dynamic duo and bestselling authors have been profiled by Business Week, Marketing News, Advertising Age, The Wall Street Journal, Atlanta Journal-Constitution, and countless other domestic & international publications.

Al first rose to fame in 1972 when a series of three articles on a new concept called “Positioning” authored by Al Ries & Jack Trout appeared in Advertising Age. The positioning idea took the ad world by storm and was voted by AdAge as one of the 75 most important advertising ideas of the past 75 years.

In 1981, the Positioning book was published and has since sold well over 1 million copies. The book has sold over 400,000 copies in China alone. The two authors also wrote Marketing Warfare, Bottom-Up Marketing, Horse Sense and The 22 Immutable Laws of Marketing.

More recently, Al & Laura have written six books together and have continued to rattle the establishment by breaking with traditional conventions.
