Sheila Johnshoy '95
A St. Cloud State promoter
Sheila (Guggisberg) Johnshoy graduated from St. Cloud State and today loves promoting her alma mater.
As vice president of marketing for ePromos Promotional Products, Sheila (Guggisberg) Johnshoy ’95 has worked in large metropolises such as New York City and Boston.
But the Starbuck, Minn., native prefers the energy of Central Minnesota. It's a spirit she was accustomed to growing up and attending St. Cloud State University to major in business management.
Johnshoy started her college career by attending the University of Minnesota-Morris. But it was a tad small for her liking, so she transferred to the Minneapolis/St. Paul campus. But after one year, she realized that St. Cloud State and its business program was a better fit.
And today, the greater St. Cloud area is benefitting by that decision. Johnshoy was instrumental in getting ePromos to open a sales office in St. Cloud in early 2011. Company CEO Jason Robbins liked the attitudes, smarts and work ethic of the Minnesotans Johnshoy hired when working for him in New York.
When the company looked to expand, St. Cloud seemed like a perfect fit. And that was great by Johnshoy, who enjoys living in Minnesota, as does her husband, Michael Johnshoy ’95, who works for Wells Fargo in Minneapolis.
