Hoheisel Joins Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever Corporate Partner Team

He brings extensive experience in marketing and the outdoor industry.

Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever are proud to announce that Shannon Hoheisel will join the organization’s Corporate Partners team as Corporate Partners Manager. In her new role, Hoheisel will drive business development with a specific focus on partnerships, as well as manage the corporate sales representative.

“Shannon will be a wonderful asset to our team,” said Chris Kalis, vice president of corporate partnerships for Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever. “He brings a wealth of experience to his new role, not just in sales and marketing, but specifically in the outdoor industry as well.”

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 she was there, she developed marketing and advertising partnerships for numerous companies and organizations through television, social media, digital, live events and podcast platforms. Prior to joining Ron Schara Productions, Hoheisel worked as the director of events and live experiences at Entercom Radio.

“With my experience building partnerships and events, I am looking forward to working with the Pheasants Forever team to develop lasting and effective partnerships,” he said. “That is always my perspective and hope: to create long-term partnerships.”

Hoheisel grew up in a hunting family in southwestern Minnesota and began hunting herself in college. She now lives in Ham Lake with her son Skyler, 14, her daughter Madelynn, 11, and her GSP Nala. When she’s not working, Hoheisel can be found camping, hiking or traveling, both here and abroad. She is also heavily involved in the country music industry: she serves on the board of directors for the Midwest Country Music Organization and is the director of the LIVIN music festival.

“There is something very powerful and sobering about having the opportunity to care for the gifts that we have been given,” Hoheisel said. “I have a great passion for the outdoors and caring for it for generations to come. That’s something that’s really important to me, and something I’m looking forward to helping achieve with Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever.”
