Amy Delgrande was first introduced to Big Sky while working as a nanny for a Southern California family with a house in the Yellowstone Club. She’s now back in southwest Montana and working as Outlaw Partners’ new marketing coordinator.Delgrande started with Outlaw in late December, helping the sales team lead initiatives with clients and marketing accounts. She says she’s excited for the challenge and believes her background will be an asset to the company.
“I feel like I can bring a different perspective coming from California, a new pair of eyes, [and] a different perspective not being from Montana,” Delgrande said. “That’s my goal.”
Working from 2013-2015 as creative director for Kin Los Angeles, a high-end fashion boutique on Sunset Boulevard, Delgrande focused on photography, design and e-commerce.
Delgrande grew up in Torrington, Conn., a town in the northwestern corner of the state. She received an associate’s degree in film and animation from Northwestern Connecticut Community College before moving to California and earning a bachelor’s in advertising at the Art Institute of California-Orange County.
She met her fiancé Eddie Hafemeyer during one of her nanny trips to the Yellowstone Club – Hafemeyer has been a snowboard instructor at the YC for more than a decade.
They spent a summer together in Big Sky two years ago, paddle boarding the Gallatin and Madison rivers, enjoying live music, camping and hiking.
“Big Sky really has a great community feel,” she said. “The summer time is pretty amazing around here.”
Delgrande found Outlaw while job searching more than six months ago. “It was rated one of the top agencies in Montana,” she said, and was impressed with the company résumé once she did some more research. “All that you guys did … a magazine, a newspaper and an agency – whoa!”
Delgrande will be responsible for a host of tasks with both the marketing and video teams, including managing video content, scriptwriting and supervising social media outreach. Her strong background in film and advertising should serve her well in the new role.
“We’re excited to have Amy on board to help give another level of service to our clients,” said Outlaw COO Megan Paulson. “Her expertise in advertising and marketing within high-end boutique markets is a great fit for our team.”
Delgrande says she also hopes to manage as many projects as possible with Outlaw, her “ideal position in a company,” she said.
“I’m really excited to be a part of Outlaw.”
