Who’s your favorite young business professional?

The Outlook is interested in doing monthly stories on the best of the best young managers and staff members of businesses in East Multnomah County.

If you own, operate or are a customer of a business in Gresham, Troutdale, Fairview, Wood Village, Corbett, Boring or Damascus, and know of an exceptional employee under the age of 35 who you think warrants some recognition, please let us know by contacting Business Reporter Anne Endicott at aendicott@theoutlookonline.com.

These should be people who are at the top of their game. We’ll need a short description of why you think this employee deserves the recognition. We’ll feature these people in our “Who to Watch” segment that will appear on our business page.

Adventist was selected based on independent evaluations of the hospital’s quality of patient care and treatment in cardiac surgery, stroke, joint replacement, spine surgery and gastrointestinal care.
