He’s driven measurable results for small, medium, and large B2B and B2C brands such as USA Swimming, Trimble, YMCA of Metro Denver, Red Robin, Jenny Craig, and Dish Network.

Brett McKay

Account Manager and Lead Digital Producer
Brett McKay found Boulder during a cross-country road trip and decided to make it his home. Given his degree in math analysis and applied math, he was a perfect fit for Grounds for Promotion to help turn campaign strategies into results. He’s great with numbers, and is key to creating campaigns that blow the socks off our clients.

Lindsay Nason

Lindsay studied marketing at the University of San Diego then moved out to Colorado to be closer to her sister. She also lived two years in Nicaragua as a Peace Corps volunteer training high school teachers, and co-teaching the entrepreneurship class. She’s a great team member at Grounds for Promotion contributing as an account manager and digital producer, which is catch-all phrase for media buyer, campaign strategist, responsible for campaign builds, tracking, and reporting.

Kim Inman

Creative Lead
Kim Inman is our creative lead and produces display ads, logos, and brand standards. She’s managed the creative department that worked for brands such as Adidas, Progressive Insurance, Pepsi, Hormel, Evol, Izze, Naked Juice, Jim Beam, Veuve Clicquot, Ford, Lincoln, Nissan, and Yamaha. Kim is the design muscle behind ads that not only look great, but convert. Plus, she’s a pleasure work with!

Commitment to Craft: Work done the right way—on point, on time, with great attention to detail.

Community: We are lucky to live and work in Boulder and endeavor to give back. This includes doing discounted work for Adoption Options to help provide kids with loving homes, helping Community First Foundation maximize charitable donations for Colorado Gives Day, and pro-bono work for the  Boulder Mountainbike Alliance.
