Meet the Band… of Email Experts
Why go email alone when you can have a team of experienced financial email experts working with you?
Our talented team members have years of collective experience in financial and email marketing. In addition to sharing a love of music, they enjoy working in concert with their clients to help them succeed.
Ray Parenteau President
Like many company founders, Ray is a long-time entrepreneur. After four years in the Air Force, he completed his Communications degree at Framingham State University, while launching a local consumer magazine. That led to stints in advertising and direct mail sales and eventually, the launch and management of a successful regional real estate publication and a targeted marketing business serving New England banks and lenders.
Direct response has always been a part of the equation, so when email marketing emerged, Ray saw the opportunity to develop solutions for his bank clients. Ray was an early force and presence in the field, speaking at numerous industry conferences and developing best practices that are still the standard today. Heeding peer advice, he has brought in a talented, passionate team that executes the vision every day.
Besides his continued commitment to ClickRSVP, Ray always finds time for his family, including his three cherished grandchildren. He enjoys playing guitar, songwriting, recording, and performing at open mics.
Heather Lewis Senior Vice President, eMarketing Services
As a casual runner, kickboxer, and mother of two spirited daughters, Heather knows how to stay active. She joined ClickRSVP in 2008 and has been actively involved in our success, managing client account implementations, crafting and supporting email program designs, overseeing custom and automation project implementations, while keeping pace with several additional roles.
Prior to joining ClickRSVP, Heather worked as Marketing Services Manager in Interactive for The Boston Globe and in account management with Arnold Worldwide.
She is a graduate of Stonehill College who appreciates coffee, craft beer, family activities, and watching live music with her husband.
James Maguire Vice President, Client Services
James loves to perform. In his spare time, he enjoys singing in his local church and acting in community theater. At work, he always performs for his clients, developing creative ways to help them leverage Click’s suite of services to get results.
James joined ClickRSVP in 2008. Prior to becoming part of our team, he worked at Exlibris, HBM, Mathworks, and Optos, where he was responsible for email and website initiatives, including webinars and events.

Mat Rudd Account Manager/Social Media Strategist
Meet Mat. He’s not a bragger, but he does love to “beat his own drum.” He’s been a drummer for 15 years and a key member of ClickRSVP’s account management team for three. His previous work experience as a Universal Banker with Citizens Financial Group has allowed him to understand financial marketing from the client side and work one-on-one with his clients to deliver solutions that help them succeed.
Though he was born and raised in Massachusetts and doesn’t have a twang, Mat considers Tennessee, where his father grew up, his second home.
He holds a Communications degree with emphasis in public relations and marketing from Worcester State University in Worcester, MA, and the office record for the Most Harry Potter Marathons completed.
