Inside E5: Amanda Hotts

Tyler Zenk Sr Designer Heashot

By Tyler Zenk | June 2020

Welcome to our new Blog Series: Inside E5

Each week, we’re going to ask an E5-er some fun questions so you can get to know our team (and our quirks) a little better. Every person at Element5 plays an integral role in the success of our projects and our differences are what makes our team so amazing. So we wanted to take you all behind the scenes so you could get to know each and every one of us better. Psst.. don’t forget to hit play on that Spotify playlist below! We asked everyone to create a playlist with there current favorite song so you could relate a bit more to them. Music tells a lot about someone and how they like to work and spend their time. Dive in below and enjoy getting to know our Managing Partner, Amanda Hotts!

Amanda joined our team in early 2016 with a passion for process and wanted to help our team find one that would work best for us and our clients. Not only is she a Managing Partner, but she’s also the one that keeps every piece of every project on track. She is always the one looking out for everyone on our team and is an amazing Mom outside of the office.
