Ever since his junior year of college, Kris Koivisto has been entrenched in the marketing and communications world of sports and entertainment. Now, ten years into the workforce, Kris is currently the Senior Director of Accounts at STN Digital, a full-service creative agency headquartered in San Diego, California.
Prior to joining the team at STN, Kris worked for the NBA's Portland Trail Blazers from 2007-2017. After spending the first seven years working in the team's award-winning PR department, he made the jump to digital in 2014, overseeing the team's social media strategy for three years. Over that time, the Trail Blazers won the NBA's Digital Innovator of the Year Award twice and @trailblazers was named the NBA's #1 Twitter account three consecutive years by Complex. Kris also co-hosted the podcast 'The Trail' and filled in as one of the team's photographers during his final three years in Portland.
Ambitious and curious, Koivisto is as competitive as they come. He finds himself at his best when facing a challenge -- and always believes things can be done better.
Kris and his wife Chrystal live in Happy Valley, Ore. with their two kids, KJ (6) and Presley (3). A native of Portland, Ore., Kris attended Clackamas High School and Western Oregon University. He does not have any free time, but if he did, it would be spent on home improvement projects, trips to the Oregon Coast, catching up with friends, playing basketball, or working out.
