Portu Sunberg joined the global celebration of International Women’s Day (“IWD”), highlighting the social, economic, culture and political achievements of women. We hosted a variety of events throughout the week aligned to the 2018 global theme, #PressforProgress, culminating in a discussion and lunch with Dr. Rose M. Brewer from the University of Minnesota for employees, their families, clients, and vendors.
The PS team remains committed to supporting our communities. We recently partnered with Catholic Charities and spent a day assisting in a large-scale warehouse clean-up and move.
When March Madness comes to Portu Sunberg, we get into the spirit with a little friendly competition of our own! The annual March Madness ping-pong tournament provides a chance for us to let off some steam, show off our skills, and one lucky winner wins bragging rights for the entire year!
Meet Jordan Cespedes! Jordan attended the University of North Dakota and enjoys watching college hockey (as long as the Sioux are playing). She enjoys going to local different breweries, especially if her dog can tag along. In her free time, she likes to go to new walking/hiking trails, read, listen to music, go to concerts/shows and re-watch episodes of Parks and Rec. Fun fact: In college, she planned a concert for Wiz Khalifa.
Sandy Krause celebrated 35 years with Portu Sunberg on April 25, 2018. Sandy is currently an Executive Account Manger working with multiple vendors and retailers. Her expertise and leadership continue to be an invaluable asset to the PS team, and we are proud to celebrate this important milestone with Sandy.
