Verde PR & Consulting Welcomes New Faces

Verde PR Doubles Boulder Office Staff

Local Colorado PR & Consulting firm, Verde, welcomes action sports industry veterans Meghan Gabrow, Alex Hunt, and Amanda Markert to its Boulder team. The company is excited to celebrate their 11th anniversary this year and continue to shake things up in the outdoor lifestyle market.

Press Release: Boulder, Colo. (June 3, 2013)Verde PR & Consulting has doubled the size of its Boulder office since January, and the agency now employs 22 people between its three main offices.

At 10th and Pearl Street, Verde’s Boulder office is strategically located near watering holes for caffeinating its staff by day and entertaining clients by night. The inspiring Flatirons stand just southwest of its doors and account for a percentage of the staff’s health and wellness quotient; it provides a stress-busting playground for lunchtime trail runs, climbs, and road rides on Flagstaff.

In Boulder, Verde most recently hired action sports industry veteran Meghan Grabow as well as Alex Hunt, who is a former communications specialist and heli-skiing manager at Silverton Mountain Ski Area, in Silverton, Colo.

Verde’s Digital Services and Content Solutions divisions welcomed Amanda Markert, former online editor at SKI and Skiing Magazines. Verde’s Digital Services and Content Solutions divisions provide turnkey content marketing, SEO services, social app development, and community management for clients’ social platforms.

In Boulder, Verde’s internship program has become a sought-after skills building opportunity for University of Colorado students. The internship program recently partnered with Backpacker Magazine’s “Win Your Dream Job” contest, resulting in the hire of winning applicant, Josh Mallin.

“Our Boulder office was a strategic addition for the agency for many reasons, including the fact that many media and influencers, as well as Verde clients, call Boulder home,” said Verde CEO/founder Kristin Carpenter-Ogden. “Our employees live and breathe the active outdoor lifestyle and deliver inspired, creative communications strategies; their passion inspires the entire agency and helps push our industry and clients forward. 

Verde celebrates its 11-year anniversary in 2013 as a leader in the active lifestyle, outdoors, cycling, snowsports, fitness, travel and sustainable-products markets. With offices in Jackson, Wyo., and Durango and Boulder, Colo., Verde’s team lives the mountain and action sports lifestyle with passion and authenticity.
