Microsoft Word - SusanDiamond_Photos.docxPersonal Summary
After my first few years in Peoria, my family moved to Edina. I graduated from Shattuck-St. Mary’s and got a B.S. from the U of M.

8 to 5…
My first “real” job was at Towle Real Estate supporting 11 brokers!  I moved to Marketing Coordinator at Lincoln Centre working with Dave Menke and Tom Threlkeld, which was great fun. (Some of you DLs may be wondering what Towle Real Estate and Lincoln Centre were – now Cassidy Turley and 333 South 7th.)

After Towle, I spent three years at The Ackerberg Group as Corporate Communications Manager where I forged industry relationships that have lasted for years. With the support of trusted mentors, I started Jigsaw in 1997 to provide marketing and event production, primarily to clients in commercial real estate.Microsoft Word - SusanDiamond_Photos.docx

In 2008, economics necessitated that I branch out and I am excited to produce events ranging from small team building events to grand openings, fundraising galas and all-employee meetings for clients like Boston Scientific, Memorial Blood Centers, Dakota Plains and Adoption Option. I’m thrilled to work with long term and new real estate clients including The Ackerberg Group, Stewart Capital Partners, Opus, Metropolitan Mechanical, Christianson & Co., CBRE, RMR, and The Excelsior Group, to name a few.

Microsoft Word - SusanDiamond_Photos.docxIn 2004, I joined the International Special Events Society and earned the Certified Special Event Professional (CSEP) designation.  I’m one of seven people in Minnesota to hold it. This year I was elected to their Board of Directors and will produce the association’s 10th anniversary awards gala at Orchestra Hall.

I’ve been a NAIOP member for a really long time, have loved participating on lots of committees and helping to create numerous Awards of Excellence and Celebrate with NAIOP events. Many NAIOP colleagues have become clients and good friends.

I love spending time with family, enjoying friends, music and sports with my husband, cooking, gardening, and volunteering with organizations close to my heart.
