about kris

 

 

Schooled in marketing, groomed in PR, refined in digital, accomplished in social - Kris Koivisto lives for brand strategy, optics and innovation. 

He’s at his best when facing a challenge, and always believes there’s a more efficient and effective way to do things.

From 2007 - 2017, Kris worked for the NBA’s Portland Trail Blazers. After spending his 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 the next three seasons.

The Trail Blazers won the NBA's Digital Innovator of the Year Award in both 2016 and 2017 and their Twitter account was named #1 in the NBA by Complex in 2015, 2016 and 2017.

In February 2017, Kris was recruited by a social media agency in San Diego. He made the decision to leave the Northwest and move his family to Southern California as the Senior Director of Accounts at STN Digital.
