Angela joined Bottleneck Management in January of 2010 at The Boundary while searching for her next career move and, lo and behold, Bottleneck posted their first home office marketing position the following summer.
Starting the department in 2011 on her own, Angela was responsible for creating, directing and coordinating all of Bottleneck Management’s print, in-house and digital marketing initiatives. Her keen ability to manage all of these projects, coupled with her creativity, provided Bottleneck Management with an effective marketing leader to help retain existing guests and attract new ones.
Since 2011, Angela has grown the team into a robust marketing arm for the company, overseeing and planning for every property across the country. Angela manages and oversees all aspects including strategy, market planning, ideation, digital marketing, social media, design, branding, web presence, email marketing and anything else that smells even remotely like a marketing initiative. She of course works hand-in-hand with her motivated and creative team as they continuously strive to be best-in-class restaurant marketers.
Angela graduated from The University of Wisconsin-Parkside with a B.A. in Communication and a minor in Graphic Design. She has held various professional sales and marketing roles, coming to Bottleneck from her position with Navy Pier. Her past experience has allowed her to gain experience in graphic/sign design, print production, project and team management, and restaurant management. That experience paralleled with hands-on restaurant experience since the age of 15 allows Angela to have a very qualified understanding and perspective of the marketing needs for Bottleneck Management and its unique venues.
Outside of Work
Angela is proud to admit that family and friends are what makes her world go ‘round and feels very fortunate to be surrounded by such wonderful people. Angela was a collegiate volleyball player and in her spare time participates in competitive volleyball leagues and tournaments. She is a graduate of the Improv Conservatory at Second City, and was learning to play the drums and really thinks she should get back to that. Angela loves traveling to as many countries as she can, live music, doing the NYT crosswords with her husband, interacting with people that appreciate the littlest things, physical activity, and fishing on a lake with her family – beer in hand.
