Hawthorne to serve as RACC Interim Executive Director
The Regional Arts & Culture Council (RACC) has named Jeff Hawthorne as the executive director on an interim basis, effective July 1 until the new executive director is hired. RACC's current executive director, Eloise Damrosch, retires on June 30.
As a 15-year veteran of the organization and RACC's director of community engagement, Hawthorne is responsible for securing a large majority of the organization's public and private revenue each year. He supervises RACC's advocacy efforts, research activities, communications strategies and fundraising campaigns. Among his accomplishments at RACC, Hawthorne designed and implemented the state's first United Arts Fund campaign (Work for Art), and secured funding for RACC to launch a new arts integration program in classrooms in 2007 (The Right Brain Initiative). He co-authored the region's 2009 cultural action plan, Act for Art, which laid the groundwork for the city's arts tax. In 2015, he received the Michael Newton Award from Americans for the Arts in recognition for his innovation in developing private sector partnerships and funding for the arts.
Hawthorne is expected to serve in this role for at least three months; he is not a candidate for the position permanently. The search for the new executive director is being managed by the RACC-appointed search committee.
Logical Position on Best Workplace list
Logical Position (LP), a Lake Oswego-based digital marketing agency, was named one of Inc. Magazine's 50 Best Workplaces. Coming in third on the list among large businesses, LP was the only Oregon-based company to be named in the top-50 awards. Accolades are not unfamiliar to LP — already an Inc. 500 company, a Portland Business Journal Fastest Growing Company, an Oregon Business 100 Best Company and most recently a Microsoft Growth Channel Partner of the Year.
To qualify for Best Workplaces — which was released online and will appear in the national magazine's June issue — companies must be U.S.-based, independent and privately owned. Candidates also must have been in business for at least three years, employ between five and 500 full-time employees and have revenue exceeding $2 million in 2016.
Of the more than 500 companies that submitted applications and employee-administered surveys for Best Workplaces, only 50 were chosen. Submissions were audited by Inc. and evaluated by Quantam Workplace, an employee engagement firm. Judges ranked applicants based on workplace factors like company management practices, employee recognition, performance communication, benefits and other elements of the employee experience.
