Executive Recruitment in Portland, Oregon

Located at the confluence of the Columbia and Willamette rivers in Multnomah County, Portland is a port city in the U.S. state of Oregon. It is the most populous city in Oregon, with approximately half its residents staying within the Portland metro area.

Portland’s location lends itself to a number of industries. It also boasts readily available resources, relatively low energy costs, substantial marine shipping facilities, international airports, interstate networks running east-west and north-south, and connections to both major west coast transcontinental railroads – all of which contribute to its economically advantageous position.

The technology sector is one of Portland’s main economic drivers, with over 1,200 tech businesses located within the metro. This abundance of tech firms in the Portland area has earned it the moniker ‘Silicon Forest’, a nod to the region’s plentiful trees and Northern California’s Silicon Valley.

Our Process

We commence the executive search procedure by defining the qualities of the perfect candidate according to our client’s requirements. We also draw up an outline of what their duties will be and any potential difficulties they may face should they accept the role.

After laying the foundation of our search, our team can begin searching the market in Portland and the surrounding areas for potential hires. We compile a list of all candidates who meet the preliminary requirements.

Every candidate who shows promise as a match for our client is then rigorously screened to validate their resume and ascertain their fit for the role. Candidates who successfully pass our evaluations will be shortlisted for our client to review.
