Dawn Claymore, President/CEO
Dawn hails from Wisconsin and is a self-professed “cheesehead,” but we don’t hold that against her! The founder and President of Midwest Marketing, Dawn is the rhyme to our reason and the reason to our rhyme.
Dawn is one of the most respected marketing professionals in the region, for good reason. Holding three marketing degrees and a wealth of experience, she pursued her dream of being an agency owner. That dream came to fruition in 2005 when she opened the doors to Midwest Marketing. Her first client? The automotive company she was working for at the time.
Dawn has served on numerous non-profit boards including, the Black Hills Works Foundation, the Rapid City Rush Foundation, United Way, and Youth & Family Services. She was also was the first female board member on the Rapid City Chamber of Diplomats Board. Giving back to the community is something Dawn believes strongly in and focuses on.
Outside of work, Dawn is always on the move. Her and her husband Troy love to travel, spend time on the lake, biking and hiking. Dawn and Troy have three adult children and one granddaughter.

Is a hot dog a sandwich? If so, why?
Technically yes because it comes in a bun, but…I eat mine Chicago style with no bun so I’d say it is not a sandwich, it is a type of sausage.
If you owned a bar, what would you name it?
The Bluffside Inn, because in my early youth, my parents did own a bar by this name.
What is the dumbest way you’ve injured yourself?
I tore my achilles dancing at my daughter’s wedding.
