Founder + Managing Director
How does a music producer, singer-songwriter transition to founding vanguard content marketing agency, Freshwire, sell it to global marketing giant Omnicom within three years, then build a globally connected digital content studio for communications giant, FleishmanHillard before deciding to return to "making stuff?"
Considered an “up and comer” by Forbes magazine, Shawn Amos, son of Wally Amos (Famous Amos cookie brand), attributes his diverse background to growing up in the colorful Hollywood landscape. As a contributor on Bloomberg West TV, Amos is known today for his expertise in brand marketing. In a world of 24/7 media, people and companies are having a difficult time competing and standing out in the marketplace. Amos speaks to the need for content mindfulness, creating a storytelling culture, and authenticity in the 24/7 real-time race for relevancy. TEDx, Abbvie, AT&T, Devries Global, and Gallo are among the brands that have invited Amos to speak and lead workshops.
Prior to entering the marketing world, Amos was an A&R executive at Rhino Entertainment and vice president of A&R at Shout! Factory, where he produced and recorded multiple Grammy-nominated projects. He produced broadcast, DVD and audio titles for legacy artists ranging from Heart to Quincy Jones, for whom Amos later ran the Listen Up Foundation. He serves on the board of directors for Santa Monica performing arts center, The Broad Stage and South Los Angeles social & economic activist organization, Community Coalition.
Amos describes Put Together Media as more of a collective than a company. It is a collaborative association of creators, thinkers, doers who come together on a variety of consultative, curatorial, and/or production projects. “What’s fun for me is to mix and match teams as the needs of an assignment dictate. The media landscape changes too fast to become married to a fixed infrastructure and team. Build a team that will inspire one another, let them be creative, then let them move onto the next adventure.”
Shawn has also received critical and popular acclaim as international touring blues singer, The Reverend Shawn Amos.
