Get to Know Brian
Lake One adds Brian Potter to our team as a Digital Marketing Account Manager.
Brian joined Lake One in April of 2022, where he quickly immersed himself in the day-to-day hustle and bustle of client services. Before Lake One, Brian worked in the financial sector for four years. He then started freelancing, consulting soccer players, and creating highlight videos for their college submissions. After realizing his passion lies within marketing, he made the complete switch to a Digital Marketing Account Manager at an agency in Maine.
With an insatiable self-starter drive, Brian left Maine and moved to Denver to join a sports tech startup as CMO. Later, joining an agency that specialized in the energy category. When he’s not nurturing client relationships or drawing up marketing strategies, you can find him coaching soccer as a Director of Goalkeeping for the Colorado Rapids, or playing soccer, and watching soccer. Anything soccer-related, Brian is here for it!
“It’s only been a few weeks at Lake One, but everything has been great. Everyone has been very welcoming so far,” said Brian. “I can tell this is a place I want to be long-term. Lake One has grown a lot over the past few years, and I’m excited to be a part of the growth and success to come!”
I sat down with Brian and did a few rounds of rapid-fire questions so we could get to know him.
L1: If you were famous, what would you be famous for?
Brian: Professional soccer, of course. Specifically goalkeeping.
L1: If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you choose?
Brian: England, because you can watch soccer pretty much anywhere at any time, but the digital nomad life is also cool. I would love to travel and stay at multiple locations for a few months at a time.
L1: If you could trade places with anyone in the world, who would it be?
Brian: Probably the Manchester City goalkeeper, Ederson, so I can live out my dream of playing professional soccer.
L1: Soccer seems to be the underlying passion here, so what got you into it?
Brian: I have just always played soccer from a young age. I played on travel soccer teams and was always a goalkeeper. The team I was on would destroy everybody, and I barely got any action, so I don’t know how I enjoyed goalkeeping so much. I got good at it over time, and soccer quickly became my best sport. This lead to a successful college career, before getting into coaching.
During his time at Lake One, Brian has not hesitated to jump right to work. His personable nature allowed him to start developing relationships with clients and fine-tuning marketing processes quickly. We cannot wait to see what’s in store for his future at Lake One!
