Meet the Team

  • A company is only as good as its human capital, and Buffalo has nailed it. It’s full of strategic, creative, business-savvy and driven professionals.

    Katie BaronganHuman Resources
  • There’s nothing better than helping a brand you believe in earn the recognition it deserves. That is what I get to do every day.

    Alex BoydSpecialist - Sport
  • Melding data, earned media and analytics is the best of all worlds. When not geeking out, I’m running and hanging with my kids.

    Marnie BoyerMarketing Insights
  • When I’m not sharing new and exciting brands with the world, I stay active playing hockey and golf, or riding my bike or skateboard around DC. 

    Garrett CarterAssociate - Hard Goods
  • When I’m not in front of my computer pushing pixels and designing your latest campaign, you can find me behind the drum kit banging out beats.

    Erik DeanSenior Graphic Designer
  • At Buffalo, we’re teammates and the positive, encouraging atmosphere is a breeding ground for innovative ideas that help our clients grow. 

    Andy DeKeusterSenior Specialist - Resort, Destination, Real Estate
  • I’m a total golf junkie, so obviously I love my job! I also enjoy coaching my daughter’s soccer team and cross-country skiing with my Husky. 

    Bill FeidlerDirector - Hard Goods
  • I love to talk and tell stories, so PR is the perfect career for me. It’s even better that I get to indulge my passions for fashion and pop culture!

    Ashley GallitelliSpecialist - Soft Goods
  • We represent industry leading brands that make great gear for the activities we love, so there’s a truly symbiotic relationship between work and play.

    Ian GilleyAssociate - Hard Goods
  • Buffalo is full of creative thinkers and go-getters, which is why I love the office environment. It’s the perfect blend of experience and energy.

    Tommy GlasgowAssociate - Resort, Destination, Real Estate
  • Whether pitching a journalist on a big story, playing soccer or coaching a boys’ travel team, I’m always working to develop a winning strategy.

    Glenn GrayDirector - Sport
  • As a PR junkie, it’s rewarding to see brands I believe in grow and succeed. To relax, I turn to my favorite wireless handheld device: a fly rod.

    David GriffithDirector - Soft Goods
  • Away from the office, I love taking nature photographs, competing in half marathons and obstacle races and am training for my first marathon.

    Lindsay HankAdministrative Coordinator
  • It’s awesome seeing the hard work we put in day after day pay off in great publicity and social media coverage for our clients!

    Justine HongAdministrative Assistant
  • Buffalo has been wonderful about supporting a real work-life balance and the job allows for the flexibility it takes to be a working mom.

    Jane Milbrandt MacNeilleSpecialist - Resort, Destination, Real Estate
  • The fast-paced environment and sports-centered clients makes every day a new experience. The icing on the cake? Working with awesome people.

    Cassie PhillipsAssociate - Soft Goods
  • I’m always on the go. After busy days at work I love standup paddle boarding, rowing, open water swimming, or uncovering a new adventure.

    Mara RiceAssociate - Sport
  • Like a lot of golfers, I’ve always loved the idea of traveling the world with clubs in tow. Now I get to do it for my job, which is pretty amazing!

    Stephen ReynoldsDirector - Industry, International
  • Whether I’m working, watching or playing, sports are always close to my heart and mind, most notably golf, or rooting for my Texas A&M Aggies. 

    Robert RodriguezSpecialist - Resort, Destination, Real Estate
  • Unlike my golf score, Buffalo’s client turnover is low. This is due to its ‘more, better, faster’ philosophy.

    Anthony ScalaComptroller
  • When someone learns where I work, I inevitably receive compliments about my colleagues and the brands we represent. That’s a great feeling.

    Gary TraskManager - Resort, Destination, Real Estate
  • I’m a tech junkie and so is Buffalo. We commit substantial resources which help efficiencies and, ultimately, results for clients.

    Dave WilliamsInformation Technology
  • My love of travel led me to author “Around the World in 80 Rounds.” I consider my current home, New York City, the best place in the world. 

    David WoodSpecialist - Resort, Destination, Real Estate
