President Tells Why Campbell Global Earns Top Workplace Honors Four of Past Five Years
Campbell Global, a leader in sustainable timberland and natural resource investment advisory services, is doing a lot of things right. Built on a foundation of quality service, expertise, and integrity, the company brings more than three decades of experience and industry knowledge to its clients, and has enjoyed sustained growth both domestically and internationally. In addition, it has been a Top Workplace for four years running.
Angie Davis, the Portland, Oregon firm's new President, has worked for Campbell Global for 16 years. She recently shared her thoughts on being a Top Workplace.
Campbell Global has been named to The Oregonian's "Top Workplaces 2016" List. What does that mean for the company?
It is an honor to receive this award. We focus on providing employees with a challenging and meaningful work environment, and a family-supportive organization. We believe this environment benefits our investors through superior knowledge, low turnover, and the commitment of our employees.
What is Campbell Global's approach to working with clients?
Our clients are first and foremost our partners. We engage with them from a standpoint of integrity, honesty and as trusted professionals. Our clients' needs are varied and a unique relationship is developed with each of them to align with their organizational structure and requirements. We also encourage clients to get as involved as they want in every step of the investment lifecycle.
What are some highlights from the last year?
It's hard to pick just a few! Grow the Good is always a favorite, which is our way of giving back to local communities by supporting nonprofits. Since the campaign's inception in 2008, we have generated approximately $750,000 per year to the benefit of our local communities.
Last year's partner organizations included working with Project Lemonade in Portland to support confidence-building in foster youth; Great Northern Services (McCloud, CA) to distribute food to seniors and low-income families; Rainbow Room of Sabine County (Jasper, TX) to provide essential home supplies to case workers working with local families; and general support for Habitat for Humanity.
We also partnered with a number of conservation groups. We worked with Pacific Forest Trust and Blue Source on the issuance of forest carbon credits in California. And we worked with the North Carolina Land Trust to protect a parcel of land along the Waccamaw River Blue Trail.
And on behalf of a client we acquired a new property in King and Snohomish Counties in Washington State. Finally, we closed on almost $250 million under our global strategy, which is focused on seven core countries in Latin America, Australasia and North America.
