For a decade Oregon Consular Corps, Governor’s Office, City of Portland, Port of Portland, Nike, Hoffman and our distinguished partners (US Commerce, Oregon Business, Oregon Dept. of Agriculture, et. al.) have presented business awards. A representative jury of 10 considered and chose WSO as the 2019 Leadership awardee.
The criteria for the Leadership Award is as follows:
Open to any Oregon company or individual who has impacted Oregon’s International trade. This award celebrates Oregon’s highest performing companies and recognizes those that have exceeded initial targets for growth and financial performance; best demonstrated an understanding of their competitors, customers, and the new markets into which they have expanded; and have foundations in place for continued commercial success, and/or an individual who has supported local companies in achieving those goals.
