Meet the Rocket Fuel team.
Amanda was head of marketing for Mindbody during the company’s most pivotal and explosive growth stage, from $20M to $200M, including its initial public offering. While at Mindbody’s helm, Amanda built a demand generation pipeline that increased leads by 300% in less than a year, fueling the company’s exponential growth. She also expanded the marketing team by 5 times, launched the consumer app and brand, and created the BOLD Conference, which not only grew from 200 to 2000 attendees but also attracted Michelle Obama and Magic Johnson as speakers. Amanda has a wide range and depth of experience helping companies at every stage, from Seed to IPO, with growth rates between 40-100%. She’s eager to accomplish goals like this for your company.
Senior Account & Program Manager
Nicole is a strategist, a collaborator and a get-it-done-er. Before joining Rocket Fuel Labs, Nicole worked on the experiential marketing team at Mindbody where she spearheaded a wide range of global events, developed and implemented innovative marketing plans, and managed event budgets, logistics, content, strategic alignment, sponsorship sales and post-event metrics. This California native and Cal Poly grad is passionate about wellness, sustainability and personal development, all of which she pursues by being active, cooking, traveling, spending time with friends and family, and exploring San Diego’s beaches.
Digital Marketing Strategist
We’re not positive, but we’re pretty sure Jake’s middle name is Digital Marketing Guru. Before joining the Rocket Fuel Labs team, this marketing aficionado and UCSB grad served tech startups at a full-service digital marketing agency and in-house at a software company focused on lead-gen. Here he uses his paid media experience across display, social and search to deliver results for our clients. When he’s not working, Jake runs. Not surprising, since he runs circles around the competition.
Director of Strategy & Accounts
Look up “overachiever” in the dictionary, and you just might see Brittany’s photo. With nearly a decade of experience in B2B marketing, this high energy leader makes it happen, whether that “it” is, developing high-performance campaigns, building programs that nurture leads and create engagement, or enacting processes that leverage technology to drive results. Britt’s experience covers a wide range of industries with a focus on innovators and startups in various stages. Her hobbies include travel, hiking, golf, snowboarding and thinking about clients’ success in her sleep. (We’re just guessing on that last one.)
Sr. Revenue Operations & Data Manager
Kristine is the queen of all things numbers, from leading revenue operations to streamlining workflows to everyone’s favorite: providing actionable insights based on bona fide data. Born and raised on the island of Guam, Kristine has spent more than a decade helping fast-paced SaaS companies soar. When she’s not crunching numbers (and crushing goals), Kristine loves traveling, hiking, jiu jitsu and hitting the beach.
