A business broker with 40 years of merger and acquisition experience, Linn Crader helps corporate clients align their professional and personal interests as the president of Business Transition Services on the west coast. Linn Crader also belongs to the Portland Business Alliance, the Chamber of Commerce chapter for the Greater Portland area. The organization administers several programs for leadership development including Leadership Portland.

Leadership Portland provides business leaders with the opportunity to broaden their perspectives on critical issues affecting the region by increasing their awareness on the relationship between business, government, and community sectors. The program deepens understanding on how these sectors collaborate to achieve common goals. It also enables participants to develop advanced skills such as problem-solving and team management. In addition, business leaders will engage in initiatives that better the community by completing team-based Impact Projects.

Program sessions begin in September and conclude in June the following year. A two-day retreat kicks off the program, followed by full single-day monthly sessions from October through May. Business leaders who complete the program may participate in the graduation ceremony in June. Successful completion of the program requires participants to attend all sessions and remain employed by an Alliance member business in good standing.
