Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever are proud to announce Shannon Hoheisel will be joining the organization’s corporate partners team as the corporate partners manager. In her new position Hoheisel will drive business development with specific focus on partnerships, as well as manage the corporate sales representative.
“Shannon will be a wonderful asset to our team,” said Chris Kalis, Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever’s vice president of corporate partnerships. “She brings extensive experience to her new position, not only with sales and marketing, but also with the outdoor industry specifically.”
Prior to accepting her new position, Hoheisel was a senior sales and marketing executive for Ron Schara Productions, which produces seven outdoor lifestyle television shows across the country. While there, she developed marketing and advertising partnerships for numerous companies and organizations through TV, social media, digital, live event and podcast platforms. Before joining Ron Schara Productions, Hoheisel worked as the director of live events and experiences at Entercom Radio.
“With my background in building partnerships and events, I’m really looking forward to working with the Pheasants Forever team to develop lasting and effective partnerships,” she said. “That’s always my perspective and hope — to create longterm partnerships.”
Hoheisel grew up in a hunting family in southwest Minnesota, and began hunting herself in college. She now lives in Ham Lake with her son Skyler, 14, her daughter Madelynn, 11, and their GSP Nala. When not working, Hoheisel can be found camping, hiking or traveling, both here and abroad. She’s also heavily involved in the country music industry — she serves on the board of the Midwest Country Music Organization and is the director of the LIVIN music festival.
“There’s something very powerful and humbling about having the opportunity to take care of the gifts that’ve been given to us,” Hoheisel said. “I have such a passion for the outdoors and taking care of it for the generations ahead. That’s something that’s really important to me, and something I’m really looking forward to helping accomplish with Pheasants Forever.”
