Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever are proud to announce Laura Wood has been hired as the new corporate partnerships account executive. Wood joins the Habitat Organization as it continues to expand corporate partnerships across the outdoor industry. In her new role, Wood will develop, pitch and close new and renewing business for the Habitat Organization across a variety of platforms.
“As Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever continue to experience vast growth, we’re thrilled to have Laura join our team,” said Shannon Hoheisel, Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever’s corporate partnerships manager. “With the combination of her years of engagement with her local chapter, her depth of sales experience and her passion for conservation and upland hunting, she will be a valuable addition to our corporate partnerships team and our wildlife habitat mission.”
Before joining the Habitat Organization, Woods worked as a beer sales representative for 7G Distributing in Iowa. She has also been heavily involved in her local Pheasants Forever chapter in Johnson County, Iowa for over a decade, where she honed her knowledge of the organization and the outdoor industry in general.
Woods will now help support the corporate partnerships team on a number of different fronts. She will sell print advertising in both the Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever journals, coordinate sales presentations and partnership campaigns, and work with a wide array of businesses to sell over 400 trade show booths and sponsorships at National Pheasant Fest & Quail Classic each year.
“Pheasants Forever and Quail Forever have been a passion of mine for over a decade,” Wood said. “I’m very excited to now use that passion, as well as my experience in the sales world, in a professional capacity with the Habitat Organization.”
