My name is Amber Frankhuizen, I’m the Founder & Chief Strategist at AFMKTG. AFMKTG is a boutique agency. I keep our team and client list small on purpose, because I only want to work with people and brands I believe in, and I want to give them all of my attention.
In my previous life, I was VP Sales/Marketing at a San Diego-based real estate development firm, where I directed creative teams, public relations firms and digital marketing teams to drive strategy while overseeing $500 million in assets and supporting the sales team in closing over $250 million in sales. Prior to this role, I was a sales manager and coach, pre-selling multi-family real estate while under construction.
I eat, drink, breathe and dream of marketing, branding and sales. My superpower is taking a big problem and breaking it into bite size bits, so my phone rings every day with a business owner asking for advice on how to scale, how to pivot, or how to lead. I’m fascinated by human behavior and psychology, which is the basis on which successful marketing plans are built. It’s a balance between art and science, and I’m now lucky enough to be growing brands and businesses across multiple sectors including real estate, architecture, yachting, luxury travel, self-development and professional athletics.
I graduated Cum Laude with a B.S. Business Administration, Marketing from San Diego State University and currently live in North County San Diego, California. Outside of AFMKTG, I coach and mentor college students and recent graduates through professional and personal development and am developing an app that will help high-achieving millennials stay committed to their self-development practices.
