BrightGauge is excited to announce the latest addition to our Growth Team, welcoming Amanda McCluney as Marketing Coordinator!
The early days
Born and raised in North Carolina, Amanda packed her bags and headed for sunny skies in 2008, searching not only for better weather but also a more exciting place to live. But let’s back up for a minute and note that prior to the move, Amanda graduated from The Art Institute with a major in Interior Design. After school, she joined well-known design house Brunschwig & Fils but a few years in the industry came with the realization that she wanted to focus on other career opportunities. After a brief stint with a sports-industry publisher, she hit the road to Florida.
Fast forward to the last few years where Amanda’s most recent adventure was Marketing Coordinator at AFS Acceptance, an automobile finance company in Fort Lauderdale. She loved the opportunity to build their social media platforms, manage internal and external communications and launch their business blog - but she also knew she wanted the opportunity to dive further into marketing. Especially if that opportunity came with a focus on the inbound methodology. Then BrightGauge crossed her path....
A new chapter at BrightGauge
Amanda’s days as Marketing Coordinator at BrightGauge will focus on creating our brand strategy and content. She looks forward to the opportunity to continue polishing her writing skills and helping us achieve our growth strategy. When we asked her about the best part of being a member of the BrightGauge team, it was clear that she’s excited about our close-knit group, learning an industry that’s new to her and also using some incredible resources and tools to accomplish her marketing goals.
On a personal note
Outside of the office, you’re likely to find Amanda making the most of all there is to do in South Florida. There’s always a new restaurant, a beach, an art event or a new wine bar/brewery to check out! Amanda also enjoys donating her time to volunteer efforts in our local community. Her time at home is always filled with entertainment courtesy of her nosy but well-meaning dog, Nina.
We’re happy to have Amanda on board with the BrightGauge team and look forward to seeing her accomplish big things here!
