Sales Department

Alyssa Backus

Hi all! My name is Alyssa Backus, I am known around here as the "A" in A&M Aquatics. My parents, Bill and JoAnn are the owners and have raised me right alongside this business. I have worked here on and off since I could scrub a fish tank at the age of three (I obviously had a super fun childhood). I am now taking a more prominent role as a member of the sales team. A little background on me: I recently graduated from Michigan State University with a supply chain management degree. Like most of you, I am extremely passionate about the ocean and all of the creatures it holds. I also have a strong interest in business and fully understand what it takes to run a small business. I have seen A&M Aquatics grow from a one-man operation to the awesome company it is today. I look forward to applying the business knowledge I have to help YOUR business in any way that I can. I look forward to talking to you all soon. Please call or email me anytime with questions, concerns, or just to chat. I would love to hear from you!

Brian Dowling

Hello! My name is Brian Dowling. I've been in the aquarium trade for a little over seven years, four of those years in retail, both as a store owner and an employee, and the other three years at the wholesale level packing and selling fish. I am married and will be moving back to Michigan from Florida to be near family and pursue my career. While I owned a retail store I dealt with A&M and I'm excited to now be a part of their team. If you need anything at all, don't hesitate to email or call.
