Hunzinger Welcomes Maggie Pinnt as New Business Development Director

Maggie Pinnt is our new Business Development Director who comes to Hunzinger Construction from a nontraditional route. She began her career spending 5 years building brands and working on the advertising campaigns of large iconic SE Wisconsin companies.

After working at marketing and advertising agencies, she went to work for BizTimes Media, where she spent the next 7 years working with a variety of Wisconsin based firms strategizing content and helping companies tell their stories, specifically focusing on Construction, Manufacturing, and Hospitality. She credits her experience at the BizTimes for giving her the most valuable learning and working experiences, opening the most doors for her, and providing deep knowledge of the SE Wisconsin business community.

Maggie was born and raised in Stone Bank, went to Carroll University, currently lives in Hartland, and is a fixture all around the Lake Country. At Carroll, Maggie studied public relations and communications with an emphasis on business management. She serves on three advisory boards GPS Education Partners of Waukesha (one of Wisconsin’s oldest work-based learning programs), CVI (Center for Veterans issues), and the Milwaukee County War Memorial. In her free time, you can find her in the gym, singing with one of the two bands she performs with, or outside with her German Shepherd.

If Maggie could leave you with one thing it would be, “Success to me is having the reputation of being a good person who had a tremendous amount of accountability.”
