Portland Timbers

Mike Golub, Chief Operating Officer

Chelsey Cossey, Special Events Coordinator

Patti Peters, Executive Assistant

Amber Browne, Premium Service Manager

Anyone who was lucky enough to attend this week’s forum with the Portland Timbers realizes this is much deserved. The Timbers organization exemplified class from the initial scheduling of the event to the remarkable tour of Jeld-Wen Field.  Mike Golub, Timbers CEO, delivered an enthusiast presentation that connected with the audience and made those in the room feel like they were having a one-on-one conversation. Not only did Mike discuss soccer, he was able to effectively communicate the relationship between the Timbers and local government. ELGL sincerely thanks Mike, Chelsea, Patti, Amber and the other Timbers staff who contributed to making this such a memorable event.
