Kate is a familiar face to the St. Cloud Norsemen with Trois and also as a billet. We’ll let Kate get settled in and get you a full bio soon!
Mark Harstad comes to the Norsemen with many years of professional sales experience and a true passion for the game of hockey. Mark has extensive experience in the food service, food brokerage, and food distribution industries. During his career, Mark worked throughout Minnesota and the Upper Midwest. Mark loves to talk hockey and is a student of the game. He’s also a proud “sports Dad” as two of his sons played junior and college hockey while the third played college football.
Mark graduated from St Cloud State University where he majored in Physical Education and earned a minor in Vocational Education. After college, before embarking on his sales career, he taught business & life skills and coached at Sartell High School for three years.
