Leslie Silverman

From the urban jungle of NYC, via Boulder, Leslie settled in Steamboat and found it to be the perfect place to raise children. After 18 years, she decided to expand to the Front Range for access to travel, and more concerts, of course.

Her 25-year diverse marketing background includes print ad sales for major mags like Harper’s Bazaar and Condé Nast Traveler, and New Business Director for a funky Soho Ad Agency.

In 2016, after a decade freelancing in Steamboat’s marketing scene (did Steamboat have a marketing scene?), Leslie found her dream business partner in Daniel, and Hive 180 was born.

The two have continued to partner with an array of prestigious businesses, and still like drinking coffee together.

Her gregarious personality and keen perception bring honest, creative, and focused direction to all of Hive 180’s clients and project management.

Plus, she has cool hair.

Daniel Sanders

After moving to Colorado in the winter of 2010, Daniel quickly adapted to mountain life and has called it home ever since. Originally from Texas, he now resides in Fort Collins, where he enjoys the abundant breweries and fly fishing opportunities.

With an eclectic career background that includes titles such as camera operator, video editor, audio production specialist, lighting designer, photographer, web coder, graphic designer, and marketing specialist, his Hive 180 hats change daily. As do his actual hats. Bald heads get cold in the winter.

He is a certified FAA Drone Pilot who remains more comfortable behind the camera. While a man of few words, those he opts to share can often be snarky. But hey, marketers are always up for some good ole snark.

Daniel’s broad expertise, calm demeanor, and creative clarity make him a valuable asset to Hive 180’s clients.

Industry Associates

Hive 180 has a host of trusted partners that we recommend when relevant for our clients. These include, but are not limited to, printers, sign-makers, Google Adwords specialists, Facebook and Instagram retargeting companies, and hair stylists (just making sure you’re paying attention, but we’ll refer them as needed). We don’t list them here, nor do we include our pets on our team page (nothing against dogs, we love them!). 

When you work with Hive 180, you communicate with the owners. You receive direction and feedback that is specific to you.
