Congratulations to Eric Schubert!

Eric Schubert, Ecumen’s Director of Communications, was honored as a 40 Under 40‘ by Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal.The ’40 Under 40’ compiled annually, credits accomplished professionals in the fields of business, government and non-profits who have yet to reach 40 years of age.Says the Journal,‘Schubert began his career with an ambush. After returning to Minnesota following a brief internship with a PR firm in Atlanta, Schubert waited outside the WCCO Radio Building in downtown Minneapolis while ad man Dave Mona and Star Tribune sports columnist Sid Hartman were winding up their Sunday talk show. When Mona emerged from the office building, Schubert pounced and gave a 2-minute sales pitch while Mona walked to his car. Shortly after that, he was hired.’Schubert later spent eight years working at Himle Hormer, a Minneapolis based communications firm before joining Team Ecumen three years ago. Since then, he has received the 2005 Citizens League Civic Leadership Award for efforts to address statewide issues in a bipartisan manner and has frequently contributed to the Star Tribune & Pioneer Press opinion pages.Quotes Schubert to the Journal regarding his work Ecumen, ‘Our focus is on changing the experience of aging by helping people live where they want to live. I never thought I’d find myself here, but it’s very rewarding.’Congratulations again, to Eric Schubert! We are extremely fortunate to have you on our team.
