Marketing director, Colie McManus is responsible for delivering membership growth, improving awareness and increasing donations for the 21 Boys & Girls Club of Truckee Meadows sites across northern Nevada. Earlier this year she and her team secured the Club’s second Gold Award for Best Comprehensive Marketing Strategy in the United States from Boys & Girls Club of America. When she’s not at the Club, she’s in the gym leading high-intensity boot camp classes, and spinning sweat sessions. Colie has a passion for youth development and athletics so she marries the two by coaching youth soccer. “Calmly teaching someone else’s nine-year-old how to keep both feet on the ground during a throw in, may be one of my life’s greatest achievements.”She has served on several non-profit boards, but her longest tenure is with the American Advertising Federation of Reno, where she served as President in 2016. The organization prides themselves on their ability to award university scholarships for young adults pursuing journalism or marketing careers. Colie believes the best way to spend a paycheck is on concert tickets and travel.
