B Corp Oliver Russell Targets Portland for Expansion on Path To Become World’s Best Social Impact Branding Agency
Boise, Idaho-based agency to join Oregon’s strong B Corp Community
Social impact branding agency Oliver Russell has just announced its expansion to Portland with a new office. The office shares space with B-Line Urban Delivery, a fellow B Corp, in the Redd. The Portland office will be overseen by Oliver Russell’s new Business Development Director Morgan Rider. Morgan has been a familiar face in the B Local PDX community, and leads the ABC - Sustainability & Impact Reporting group (part of our Always B Collaborating series) for B Local PDX, sharing her knowledge and expertise around the subject. Morgan says:
I couldn't be more excited to be expanding Oliver Russell's reach beyond Idaho to Oregon, Washington and California. My focus will be on cultivating new opportunities with businesses and nonprofits that share our vision for positive world change. Portland is home to many purpose-driven brands, and Oliver Russell’s expertise in branding and marketing helps organizations across the Northwest achieve their goals with a strong sense of values and purpose.
Rider is a stalwart conservationist, serving as Board Chair for The Climate Trust, as a board member for The Wetlands Conservancy, and as the Community Chair for the Portland Advertising Federation. She sees big potential for Oliver Russell in the booming B Corp environment the greater Pacific Northwest has cultivated.
Founder and President of Oliver Russell Russ Stoddard believes Portland is the perfect stepping stone for the agency’s growth ambitions. He says:
Oliver Russell wants to scale the social impact it creates in the world, and the way we do that is by growing our business and the success we generate for our purpose-driven clients. The Portland community feels like the right first step—it gives us access to change-making B Corps and future-thinking nonprofits, with better proximity to similar clients in Seattle, as well.
With its freshly minted presence, Oliver Russell offers a friendly request: come meet us and see what we’re all about.
“We’re a passionate group of smart, creative problem solvers eager to help businesses elevate their impact,” said Stoddard. “Good work starts from the ground up.”
