Cincinnati, OH, May 5, 2021 – Donnellon McCarthy Enterprises (DME), and Affinity Business Communications, publisher of ENX Magazine and ENX The Week in Imaging, announce that Rich Brandenburg, Senior Vice President of Sales, has been selected as a 2021 Difference Makers. A profile on Brandenburg, and 83 other honorees are included in the May issue of ENX Magazine.
The Difference Maker recognition program, now in its seventh year, provides the opportunity to salute the men and women of the office technology dealership and imaging industry—at all levels of an operation and across the full spectrum of providers (dealers, manufacturers, suppliers, consultants, technology, and solutions specialists, etc.)—for their efforts in helping to deliver on the values and ideals of their companies.
Each year, ENX Magazine solicits nominations from its readership and selects those individuals who embody the spirit of what a Difference Maker represents. This year’s class of 84 honorees is the largest in the history of the program.
“During a period in which businesses have made tremendous sacrifices to reconcile this new normal, the role of a Difference Maker is more keenly felt than ever,” said Susan Neimes, managing editor of ENX Magazine and ENX The Week in Imaging. “As businesses are asked to do more with less, it is individuals who are willing to do whatever it takes, oftentimes beyond typical work hours, that has enabled companies to survive, and even flourish, under the most difficult of circumstances. We salute their efforts.”
Added Erik Cagle, editorial director of ENX Magazine, “The pandemic certainly brought to light the need and value of Difference Makers. This year’s class offers some incredible tales that underscore their willingness to go above and beyond to ensure their companies are delivering on the core mission of quality technical and customer service. From executives in the boardroom to leaders on the warehouse floor, ensuring client and partner satisfaction is a value shared by all.”
Why Rich Brandenburg is a Difference Maker:
During his three-year career with Donnellon McCarthy Enterprises, Brandenburg’s impact has been keenly felt.

A graduate of Thomas More University who has played for the school’s football team, Brandenburg is active in the community for a local school varsity football team. Brandenburg is on the board of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Cincinnati and serves as a mentor.
“Rich is a true leader on and of the field. He enjoys growing teams while taking a humanistic approach. Rich is never too big to roll up his sleeves and help. His love, not only for his own three children but for every child, is something to be proud of.
