Our Executive Recruitment Services 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 the state, 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 the city’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.
