Amy Johns-Ikler

Our Team


Senior Account Executive

With an academic grounding in economics and biology, Amy Johns-Ikler’s incisive analytical skills and ability to absorb complex materials have made her a fast study throughout her career. As a senior account manager at Purpose Brand, she calls on her background as a marketing master, brand builder and imaginative problem-solver to activate campaigns, exceed objectives and build businesses.

Amy’s areas of expertise include branding, positioning, data analytics, customer profiling, experiential marketing, niche marketing, email marketing, social media and website development. Over the past three decades, her broad skillset and extensive experience in all facets of marketing have helped her translate organizational goals into solutions that deliver results. She has worked for iconic brands, including Anheuser-Busch, AT&T, FTD, Hammacher Schlemmer, Abby Medical, Johnson & Murphy, Kohler, Kmart and Sears.

Before joining Purpose Brand, Amy led a cross-functional team of agency experts and outside resources in the development and execution of integrated marketing programs that spurred growth. Earlier in her career, she simultaneously managed multiple client relationships that generated agency revenues exceeding $6 million annually.

A strong believer that visionary brands work at the intersection of doing good and doing well, Amy is committed to stewarding, promoting and invigorating brands—especially those that have purpose-driven missions. She is obsessively organized but finds a bit of chaos can provide that inspirational push to find new ways forward. Self-admittedly, she believes her greatest strength is being a “boot-strappy self-starter.”

Amy earned her Bachelor of Arts in economics and biology at Albion College. In her off hours, she loves to walk the family pooch Remy to the lake, cook scrumptious meals that rarely yield leftovers, row to music with a good beat or chat it up with neighbors. Her family and friends are what make her tick and impromptu dinner gatherings are her specialty.
