Black Tie Team Grows By 4

The Black Tie Digital Marketing Team has the great privilege of announcing an addition of four extraordinary new members. Rachel Arthurs, Michael Gualandri, Mohammad Omar, and Rachel Thomas joined the team and brought with them four unique and diverse personalities.

These additions allowed both our business and graphics teams to expand, giving us more man-power to deliver even more original and creative marketing tools to our clients. We are confident that these brilliant minds will exceed our expectations and are looking forward to seeing what great things they bring to the table.

Rachel “Ray” Arthurs

Rachel is a Merritt Island native and a graduate of Southeastern University with a degree in Business Management.

She now brings together her passion for the arts and an extreme knack for organization as the perfect fit for this position. We are thrilled to have Ray on our team as she has become a valuable asset to not only our CEO, but the entire team.


Michael Gualandri

He attended UCF and graduated with a degree in Communications and a minor in marketing. His senior year he discovered his love for the marketing industry during an internship with an Orlando agency. He enjoys the experience of working with different clients and gaining fresh perspectives on business. Besides his love for people and business, his dog is what gets him out of bed in the morning. Literally, she actually makes him get out. We’re glad that she does because Michael is hard at work every day ready to make history at Black Tie.

Mohammad “Mo” Omar


Joining us from the oh-so-very-awesome city of Orlando, Mo Omar is one of Black Tie’s newest Junior Graphic Designers. He is a graduate of Valencia College where he studied Graphic Design and will someday design his own video game. In the meantime, he puts his skills to the test every day in the office, creating anything from new logos to social media graphics. Mo uses every day at work as a chance for him to improve and become better than he was the day before and we enjoy having a front row seat.



Rachel Thomas
