Our Leadership Team

Our founder, Ethan McAfee, grew Amify into the top 1% of resellers on Amazon over the past eight years. We’ve taken our extensive knowledge of selling on Amazon to become a complete strategy, management, and operational partner for brands that sell on Amazon Vendor Central and Seller Central.

Our executive team has decades of experience in eCommerce strategy, direct-to-consumer marketing, analytics, and operations. Unlike most agencies, we are led by executives who have run brands and managed P&Ls. We bring that expertise to develop your Amazon growth strategy.
