Street Cred

Meet Allison Kulage-Chaney. Bare Knuckle Marketing's President and CEO. Small in stature, but full of energy and ambition. In certain circles, they call her "Lil Dynomite".

Allison is passionate about what she does, and takes a personal interest in every client she works with. She brings over 15 years of experience to the ring, and a team of talent you won't find in any other arena. But we won't bore you with the details. If you really want to know, just ask and we'll send you her resume.

When she's not delivering killer marketing strategies, you may see Allison on a Harley, spending quality time with her awesome husband and son, practicing mixed martial arts, or being amused by her dogs and cats. Allison also enjoys volunteering for community events, and supporting non profit organizations such as Bad Girl Ventures. She is a supporter of small business startups and entrepreneurs, and enjoys spending her time helping other businesses realize their dreams.


Bryan Smith is the latest addition to Bare Knuckle Marketing. He has a communications background from Ohio University. He has a lot of enthusiasm and a natural curiosity for how things work, especially digital marketing and SEO! Bryan wants to know what you do, why you do it, and how we can help you do it better.

Before joining us, Bryan spent 7 years in banking and branch management. His passion for creativity and outside-the-box thinking drove Bryan to wander from the world of banking and eventually put him in front of Allison. After their first meeting, she knew he was a perfect fit for the Bare Knuckle team! As soon as you meet Bryan, you'll know why he's become such a valuable member of our dynamic team.

When Bryan isn't all up in your business, he is spending time with his wonderful wife and daughter in Cincinnati, Ohio.
