Pionaire Chris

Chris Tuff

Co-Founder & Head of Marketing and Monetization

I fell into internet marketing after graduating from Vanderbilt in 2003. I had one of the first viral videos of my engagement to my wife in 2006 landing me on the front page of the Wall Street Journal and was one of the first marketers to work directly with Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg around the same time. I then went on to grow the social media and digital content practice at 22squared in 2008 and helped grow that into one of the largest growth and profit centers for the firm whilst becoming one of the youngest partners in our 100 yr history. In 2019 I published my national bestselling book “The Millennial Whisperer” landing me at companies like Nike but also teaching me how to scale impact. It was soon after this book success that Bert and I were sitting at a bar talking about his future where Pionaire was unlocked.

Pionaire Amy

Amy Howard

COO/Chief Operations Officer

I’m Amy Howard and I handle everything Operations related – I’m detail oriented and am an expert in adapting to fast paced, growing environments.

I started off my career modeling for brands like JCPenney and Bloomingdale’s, then transitioned into event management, handling over $1 million annually in sales. After 20 years in the hospitality industry, I converted those skills into Executive Assistant and Business Management roles in an industry in which I had no prior knowledge. Over the years, I’ve become a specialist in the management side of the radio and podcasting industries and I’ve had a ton of fun doing it.

I love watching and going to sports events (I’m a diehard FSU Football fan!), reading thrillers and historical fiction, and when I’m not working, you can find me traveling anywhere that includes a beach (tiki bars are always a plus!)

I’m excited to be a part of Pionaire from the ground up and bring my expertise and perspective from both the talent and management sides of the business not only to the team, but to your podcast, too.

Cassie Young

Chief Client Success Officer & Head of Media Operations

I’ve been in radio for most of my career, the podcasting space for half of it, and digital is my big specialty.

When it comes to the radio and podcasting industries, I’ve worked both behind the scenes as well as on the mic, so I understand everything from creating content and producing to audio editing, marketing and the technical side of things. I’ve gone viral a few times (for shutting down a rude personal trainer and dancing to Britney – yup, love me some Britney Spears), and was named one of Emory University’s 40 Under 40.

I’m a creative at heart – I’m also a photographer who loves music and books. I love Cajun food, own way too much striped clothing, care a ridiculous amount about environmental issues and love being outside – either on the water somewhere, biking, or hiking down some hidden trail.

I’m a big believer in that you really can use your voice for good, whether that looks like entertaining people, sharing ideas, or creating change, and I’m super excited to help make your vision for your podcast come to fruition.
