This event is organized by the Japan-America Society of Oregon.


Tim Boyle, Chair, President & CEO, Columbia Sportswear

Columbia Sportswear is a public company that is run by the family that founded it 81 years ago.

With Tim Boyle at the helm, Columbia has navigated many rough seas, eventually establishing itself as a family of

brands with more than $3 billion in annual sales and a global leader in outdoor apparel, footwear and lifestyle products. Columbia has a presence in over 90 countries and around 40 percent of revenue is generated abroad, a tremendous modern-day global success.

However, the current global pandemic has deeply challenged contemporary business planning; forcing leaders to re-set their thinking in all areas of operations. From supply chain to overseas investment and manufacturing, employee workfrom-home procedures to customer behaviors and online retail operations, the world is changing. And Columbia aims to keep pace.

Join us for 45 minutes with one of Oregon’s most influential businessmen, with presentation followed by Q&A session.

Immediately following the event will be a virtual networking session for all interested. Bring your own beverage and we’ll mingle using the Breakout Room Zoom feature for small group discussions.
