Employee Spotlight: Martin Upton
Can you tell us more about your role at Acceleration Partners as Associate Account Manager and what that involves?
I sit on our key accounts team and get to support some great clients. My day-to-day involves a good bit of reporting, as well as pulling important strategic insights from those reports and communicating them to the client in easy to digest stories.
I also connect with quite a few partners on a weekly basis to screen them for unique opportunities that might be suited for my clients.
In your role, which aspects do you enjoy the most?
Not going to lie, I like the holiday madness.
What attracted you to working at Acceleration Partners?
Originally it was the remote work environment, bring-your-own-device, and unlimited PTO. Now that I have been here for a while, I can easily say my favorite part is the great people I get to work with every day.
Having worked in affiliate marketing for almost three years, what excites you most about the industry?
I believe that affiliate or partnership marketing will absolutely eclipse traditional digital marketing in the years soon to come.
What’s the best piece of career advice you’ve been given?
As a fellow Denver employee, what’s your favorite thing to do/see in the city?
Ace Eat and Serve restaurant is probably my only favorite thing to do IN the city. Most of the time, I am in the mountains hiking, mountain biking, camping, snowboarding, or climbing.
What is something about yourself that might surprise people?
I almost became a river guide when I graduated college instead of joining the corporate world.
