Founder and Chief Imagination Officer
In the industry for over 30 years, Connie has perfected the right marketing mix for success: strategic thinking, a smart game plan, with the right skilled players in place. She has grown Mantooth into a valuable agency for local businesses, and has made it a place for creative, ambitious minds to work. (The fab outings and swag help too!)
Connie provides leadership on all Mantooth accounts, starting with her ability to quickly assess clients’ objectives, infusing her thorough knowledge of the local marketplace and of course–putting her imagination to work to develop winning marketing programs. For Connie, Mantooth has truly been a culmination of her love for the community and bringing great ideas to life.
Outside of Mantooth, Connie shares her talents and passion with many worthy causes. Currently, Connie serves on the Fort Collins Habitat for Humanity board of directors since 2014, including holding the role of board president for two years, and she advocates for women’s educational success as a member of United Way of Larimer County’s WomenGive program.
Connie has received many accolades as a result of her continual dedication, including “MS Hope Award” by the MS Society of Northern Colorado & Southern Wyoming in 2013, “Outstanding Mentor of the Year” by Northern Colorado Women of Distinction in 2010, “Woman of Influence” by Northern Colorado Women of Distinction in 2009 and 2010, Community Innovator by Style Magazine in 2014, and Northern Colorado SuperWoman by the Fort Collins Coloradoan in 2016.
In addition, Mantooth Marketing Company has become an inventive, forward-thinking agency that has earned its own accolades, including: “100 Fastest Growing Companies in Northern Colorado” by BizWest in 2013-2018, “ Top Twenty Largest Women Owned Company in northern Colorado” by BizWest for the past seven years and “Top Ten Advertising, Marketing and Public Relations Firms in northern Colorado” by BizWest for more than eight years, and “Small Business of the Year” by Fort Collins Area Chamber of Commerce in 2014. In 2018 Mantooth Marketing was named a 2019 Top Company by Colorado Biz Magazine.
When she’s not manning Mantooth, Connie likes to:
• Travel! (She has visited 12 countries and 42 of the 50 United States)
• Perfect her knack at being a “Google-Farmer”
• Read ten or so books a month – and yes, at least one is on marketing!
• Binge on Netflix
• Play golf. Hang on a beach. Hike.
