Portland Business Organization Appoints Stephen Green as Executive Director

A Portland business organization has announced that Stephen Green will continue to serve as its executive director on a permanent basis. Green, a seasoned entrepreneur, took on the role interim executive director earlier this year and has since expressed his passion and commitment to the organization.

Green’s Background and Expertise

Green’s experience as an economist, business owner, and vocal advocate for BIPOC-owned local businesses makes him a valuable asset to the organization. As a founding member of Business for a Better Portland and with previous work in the city’s economic development arm, Prosper Portland, Green brings a wealth of knowledge and connections to his role.

Focusing on Small Businesses

Established in 2017, Business for a Better Portland aims to promote engagement among business leaders in public policy conversations. The organization facilitates connections between members, city leaders, and philanthropists. It also offers education workshops to enhance members’ skill sets and provide them with useful tools.

Green’s Vision for the Future

In his more permanent role, Green plans to rally the local business community in finding solutions to the challenges facing Portland. He aims to make the organization a credible voice for local businesses of all sizes, advocating their concerns and ideas when shaping policies through discussions with the city.


Stephen Green’s appointment as executive director of Business for a Better Portland represents a significant step towards strengthening the voice of the local business community in shaping the city’s future. With Green’s expertise and passion, the organization is poised to make a positive impact on Portland’s economic and social landscape.
