Gard’s president and CEO in the PBJ spotlight

She was a professional ballet dancer in Portland and Seattle. She’s a foodie and a borderline Peloton addict. She’s also our president and CEO.

And as of last week, Liz Fuller is officially one of the Portland Business Journal’s Forty Under 40 honorees.

Every year, the Business Journal honors a list of what it calls “innovators, rising stars and well-known names” through its Forty Under 40 program. For this year’s list, the PBJ received more than 300 nominations. Liz, no surprise, made the cut.

Usually the Forty Under 40 honorees are celebrated at a big in-person event. This year, of course, it was virtual, but it was still a great celebration.

The program also includes interviews and profiles with each of the winners published in the PBJ, both online and in print.
