Our Region Stands Out

Oregon's Willamette Valley is our home and our team is dedicated to helping it thrive.
We know the land, the people, the obstacles, and the opportunities. We see how everything fits together to create a beautifully intricate value-add economy.

Wine alone supports dozens of industries and thousands of jobs. Here in the Willamette Valley, we can grow over 200 of these specialty crops! 

We Show Up. We Listen. We Transform Opportunities Into Reality.

When local businesses expand, when they hire new staff, when they become more productive and efficient, we celebrate. When cities thrive and communities prosper, we celebrate. When optimism grows for the future of our whole region, we celebrate.

THE IMPACT IS REAL

Multiplier Effect

According to the well-established multiplier effect, for every traded-sector job created, 2.5 jobs are also generated in the local, non-traded goods and services sector.

Good-Paying Jobs

Traded sector jobs are stable, pay above-average wages, offer competitive benefits, and since many local businesses try to expand within the region, allow employees opportunities to grow within the business.

Stable Tax Revenue

Many county and municipal budgets rely on the taxes generated from traded sector businesses. This tax revenue support vital services like roads, water treatment systems and sewers, public schools, and police and fire services, all of which make our communities safe, livable, and lovely.
