Travis Pearson honored at PBJ Forty Under 40

Yesterday we joined more than 400 others at the Hilton Hotel in downtown Portland for the Portland Business Journal's Forty Under 40 celebration, honoring 40 young, distinguished Portland-area leaders, including DePaul Industries President & CEO Travis Pearson.

This year's celebration featured a high school theme, so you can see the award winners in their glory days (as well as in the present day) in a special section in today's paper. Travis, a football player and wrestler in his younger days, discusses how he came to DePaul after serving in the military for 11 years, and how his cat got a very unique name. 

A few photos we took are below, and the PBJ has an online album with more images of the day.
