Potter comes to Backbone with over 10 years of corporate agency experience, most recently having worked in new business and marketing at one of the largest and fastest growing media agency groups in the country, Carat, an Aegis Media company. There she worked on high profile wins for the agency such as Diageo and the retention of the Pfizer account, and was instrumental in Carat’s recognition as “Agency of the Year ” in 2013. At Backbone, Potter will provide counsel on brand marketing and client development strategy to maintain the agency’s growth and momentum in the active lifestyle space.

Prior to working at Backbone, Amanda Boyle was the snow sports marketing lead for Google, where she built connections and engagement with brands, athletes and ambassadors via Google Hangouts and Communities. Amanda joins the Backbone team full-time after being on contract the past three months, and will work to assist key clients in expanding their social share of voice and develop Backbone’s overall social media management strategy.
