What does your day at Portacool entail?
This really depends on the day and time of year. My day begins by checking emails and then moves on to reviewing my calendar to see what is scheduled for the rest of the day. From departmental meetings, vendor calls, email marketing, and external sales requests, a lot goes into an average day and I have learned to be flexible.

Portacool was a growing company that was globally known for its innovative evaporative cooling products and I was eager to be joining the Marketing department. Upon starting, I immediately discovered that Portacool was a family driven company that strived to create and promote amazing products, not only for commercial, but residential comfort and reliability.

How has Portacool changed and grown over your time at the company?
Over the years, Portacool has grown into a more family oriented, technologically advanced company that takes pride in their employees. The Leadership Team has worked hard to create a culture at Portacool that allows each of us to be confident in our roles here. Portacool has seen substantial growth over the 12 years I have been here and I am proud to be a part of the Portacool Family.
