Leadership Portland Spotlight: Brian Shahum
Name: Brian Shahum
Company: Brown & Brown
Job: Producer, Commercial Lines
Why they got involved in Leadership Portland:
I heard from so many past participants that Leadership Portland was a great experience and I really wanted to be a part of it and I hope to make some lasting friendships and connections from my fellow Leadership Portland class and learn more about our City.
Why it’s important:
Leadership development is important in so many facets of our lives, not just work. Portland is my home and I want to make a lasting impact in the community. Leadership Portland gives me the opportunity to be exposed to issues I may not even be aware of.
Why Brian loves the Portland region:
I like the scenery here (the mountains, rivers, bridges, coast, etc.).
I was runner up on a reality television show called America's Next Sports Star!
