Meet Shawn Anne Buttschau!

Client Development Director @ Inmar Intelligence. Member since 2019.

Why did you decide to join AMA MN? I had been involved in the past, but most recently had been working on accounts located outside the Minneapolis area. I liked the thought leadership I was seeing from AMA MN and thought it would be a good way to reconnect with the local marketing community.

Why is being a member of AMA MN important to youIt’s a great resource for insights on current trends from different points of view outside the industry you might be immersed in on a daily basis. It’s a fun way to build a broader knowledge base while expanding your network.

What’s one of your favorite AMA MN events and why? The Super Bowl ad review! I had several CPG clients that were regular contributors to this part of the Super Bowl fun, so it’s a cool experience to hear the different opinions on how the ads were received by consumers, brands and agencies. It’s also something pretty much everyone can relate to, so it’s a fun networking opportunity.

What’s the one thing you wish others knew about AMA MN? What makes it unique? They’ve put a huge focus on the variety of programming, becoming especially creative with virtual networking, breakout rooms, etc. during the pandemic.

What is some of the best advice you’ve received in your career? The most successful people are the ones who put people first. Take care of those who work for you, those you work for and those you work with. Keep your eye on the long game and create something that will survive longer than your own participation and influence.

What do you enjoy doing in your free time? Spending time with my husband and pug (Juelle), running, swimming, cycling, theater, reading/podcasts. I also have 10 nieces and nephews that keep me busy watching sports, dance and their various hobbies!
