It’s not every day that we take the time to talk about what’s happening here at the Hipbone Headquarters (because we’d much rather be talking about what’s happening with you and your stores), but every now and again we have some exciting news to share!
Thanks to the continual support, referrals, and positive word of mouth from the best Partners a Marketing Agency could ask for (that’s you!), Hipbone has grown by 5 new Partners and 3 new team members in 2018!
We’d like to think our passion for resale, knowledge/experience of the brands, and kick-butt creative ideas have something to do with it, too 😉
Without further adieu, and in no order of importance…please join us in welcoming our new recruits!
Okay yes… technically Brittney is Kevin’s wife, and Kevin is Tara’s brother, and Tara is married to Scott. BUT if nepotism brings us team members as amazing as Brittney then we say, “GIVE US MORE” because Brittney is freaking fantastic.
Brittney primarily works for Scott and Tara on the retail side of the business, but with our recent company growth, we solicited her help with social media management. She is now the primary responder on your Facebook and Instagram accounts as she handles all incoming customer questions, comments, and complaints.
In summary, Brittney is da bomb. She’s an insanely quick learner, her responses are a trifecta of fast, accurate, and personal, and her involvement with Hipbone has been a huge plus for our team and our Partners.

It’s no secret that we pride ourselves on our combined years of brand experience here at Hipbone. And now that Kayla has joined our team, our impressive resume has grown again!
Before Hipbone, Kayla was the Assistant Manager at Scott’s Plato’s Closet Manchester store! Thanks to that experience, she’s been able to jump in quickly here at Hipbone and get to work creating fresh new ideas for social media, posting the approximate 40 pictures a day for Partner’s PC Instagram accounts, and updating the rest of the team about current trends and styles 🙂
When asked, Kayla says her excitement for working at Hipbone is “an 11!” on a 1-10 scale 🙂
Her passion for PC and her enthusiasm for marketing shines through everything she does here at Hipbone. Whether that’s arriving to work early every single day, contributing new brand initiatives, or calmly responding to crazy customers online, Kayla is awesome and we know you’ll think so too!
