Based in Los Angeles, Kimberly Island-Johnson joins as Amplifyer’s Regional Vice President of Sales and Head of West Coast. Prior to joining Amplifyer, Island-Johnson held senior sales positions at Quantcast and ADARA, where she worked alongside Amplifyer CEO and Founder Mike Aronow.
Rachel Saunders joins Amplifyer in Boston as Senior Sales Director. With over two decades of digital sales and marketing experience, Saunders has held leadership positions at Winstar as SVP of National Sales and FUOR Digital as COO/Managing Director before it was acquired by Kelly, Scott and Madison. She also co-founded the Chicago Interactive Marketing Association and worked within the sales organizations of CNN, Gannet and Questech.
