Vice President Marketing/ Sales
Amanda Dumont joined the Brooks organization in 2003 on a $30 million dollar development at 305 Dutton Street in Lowell, MA. It was here that she sharpened her expertise in property management and project-based sales and leasing – outperforming market expectations by reaching full occupancy of the 135 unit historic rehab well before projected and at an exceedingly high rate of return.
In 2005, Amanda began overseeing aspects of the Atlantic at Marina Bay development where she was responsible for over $35 million in sales. In the ensuing years, she has assumed roles on more than 2 million square feet of development in various aspects. She has become known for her sales ability, project and asset management of large scale projects throughout the New England area.
Prior to Brooks, Amanda worked for several years at Boston University as a Site Manager, overseeing their prestigious Waltham, MA campus. Her group was best known for being the world’s leading provider of IT Training and personally recognized by Bill Gates as such in the peak of the Microsoft boom.

Her charitable commitments include her long-standing relationships with the Big Sister Organization of Greater Boston, mentoring and her passion for educational programs related to children’s reading and healthy eating.
