Amber Dunlap Marketing Coordinator

Amber Dunlap
Marketing Coordinator

As GLP’s Marketing Coordinator, Amber is responsible for putting together the social media and digital marketing copy behind many of GLP’s film campaigns and she serves as GLP’s daily social media voice for both trade and consumer channels. Occasionally, she also steps in to pen a few of GLP’s research articles. In other words, she’s wearing many hats under the “marketing” umbrella at GLP Films.

She has a passion for travel and immersing herself in other cultures, so much so that she’s made her “office” South America since 2016. Cusco, Arequipa, and Cartagena have all served as home base for her as well as the inspiration for her other part-time gig, freelance travel writing for travel agencies.

 
Jen Leong Business Development Manager

Jen Leong
Business Development Manager

Jen's role with GLP is to cultivate relationships with partners around the globe who have unique stories to tell, and a need to create content and have it distributed to both consumers and trade partners.

Jen got bitten by the travel bug at the ripe young age of 16, when she went on an exchange program to Bolzano, Italy. She followed it up with a study abroad program in London, and spent the next ten years in the travel industry, working for destination management companies in Europe. She took a brief hiatus from the industry to sink her teeth into her other passion - food - and worked both in catering and on the board of Slow Food Urban San Diego. Inevitably, she missed the travel industry, and reunited with GLP this year. Fun fact: Jen was GLP's first official employee back in 2008!

Jen is constantly wandering; she has lived in Buffalo, Boston, London and San Diego. She currently resides in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, in Salida, CO. Kayaking and rafting on the Arkansas River is her jam when she's not working with our partner DMO's or slinging craft cocktails at the local distillery. Jen does have the "gift of the gab", so start talking about food, wine, travel, adventure, or the Boston Red Sox, and you'll be instant friends!
