Editor to depart Oregon Business magazine


Robin Doussard, the editor in chief at Oregon Business magazine, is leaving for a non-profit job, reports Andy Giegerich of the Portland Business Journal.

Giegerich writes, “Doussard will become communications director for The Children’s Institute, which works with Oregon’s at-risk children. Doussard had worked for the monthly magazine since 2006.

“‘I have followed the work of (Institute) CEO and President Swati Adarkar and her organization since the beginning and I am excited to be a part of such a critical effort to improve the lives of Oregon’s at-risk children,’ Doussard said in a statement. ‘I am also gratified to work for children’s issues, an area that has been a longtime passion of mine.’

“Doussard starts her new job next month.

“Adarkar said Doussard’s ‘experience as a strategic thinker and organizational leader will be invaluable to our organization.’”
