Sara Hordyk Portner and Amanda Dudek Recognized as Top Women in Construction Honorees


Since 2020, Finance & Commerce has been recognizing outstanding women in Minnesota's construction industry by publishing a special issue of Top Women in Construction and hosting an awards event where they announce the winners. Ironmark is proud to share that our very own Controller, Sara Hordyk-Portner and Director Of Human Resources, Amanda Dudek were among the honorees of 2021.

"In our second Women in Construction awards, Finance & Commerce is proud to recognize women who have made their impact in a male-centric field," said Joel Schletter, Editor of Finance & Commerce. "From laborers to leaders, the awards recognize achievement in six categories for innovative approaches to industry development, community involvement and business integrity." 

Sara Hordyk Portner was a finalist in the Professional Services category at the event. With over two decades of industry knowledge, Sara has been a tremendous leader at Ironmark. In her first year at Ironmark, Sara has transformed its financial forecasting and led a team of Project Accountants to a better work/life balance. Outside of work, Sara also volunteers with Academy of Holy Angels High School.

Amanda Dudek was a finalist in the Outstanding Industry Leadership category. Amanda brought 15+ years of Human Resources experience with her to Ironmark and has been a great addition to the management team since joining in 2019.
