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!
Portu Sunberg celebrates Cinco de Mayo! Employees joined together for a happy hour with margaritas, cervezas, and some great Mexican cuisine to celebrate the day.
Kate Kanyusik joined Portu Sunberg in January 2018 as the VP of Human Resources. She’s worked in human resources for nearly twenty years and recently relocated to Minneapolis from Boston. She is a huge fan and collector of anything vintage and has a special love for vintage Pyrex and French cosmetic and fashion ads from the 40s and 50s. Most days, you can find her walking her dog, Fella, who is a black lab and basset hound mix, around her neighborhood.
Meet Anna Conway! Anna graduated from Winona State University with a degree in Public Relations and Communications. Her favorite things to do in Minneapolis are going to Target Field, and attending Twins games or concerts in the summer. (She’s been to see Kenny Chesney 3 times there!) She also loves walking/running around Lake Calhoun and Lake Nokomis. In her free time, you will find her cheering on Minnesota sports teams, especially the Wild!
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.
