Lininger joins Oregon Iron Works
Oregon Iron Works announced on Tuesday that former Clackamas County Commissioner Ann Lininger will join the company in February as general counsel and vice president for compliance and strategic initiatives.
"Ann brings expertise in contract negotiation, project finance, and construction and development issues to this role," said Corey Yraguen, president of the Clackamas-based company that employs 400 people. "A business lawyer and former elected official, Ann has the experience to help our company comply with complex contract requirements and meet the needs of our public sector clients."
Lininger will be working on various legal and contractual issues, company officials say, but will not be doing any work with her previous employers, including any advocacy work with Clackamas County.
"I am thrilled to join the Oregon Iron Works team," Lininger said. "I grew up in a family construction business that produced concrete pipe and median barrier. I know how important manufacturing jobs are to our community and to local families. I am excited to help this important company thrive and grow."
