Our client, Skip, launched in Portland this week and was featured in several publications including TechCrunch, GeekWire, and The Oregonian. Skip’s CEO, Sanjay Dastoor, stated, in a feature on Portland’s local ABC news station, KOIN: “Different operators have approached city relationships in different ways ... We're the only operator that's never been issued a cease-and-desist letter.”

In launching, Skip adds Portland to its list of scooter-friendly cities and allows Oregonians to experience a this new means of transportation. As the scooter for real people in real cities, Skip is excited to make Portland more accessible, safe and sustainable. Great job to teammates Martha, Kat, Katie and Nicole for their hard work during Skip’s Portland launch!

Our client, the Presidio Trust and the Fort Winfield Scott project, was featured in the San Francisco Chronicle this week in the piece by John King, “Fort Scott -- Restoring Presidio’s Hidden Gem.” The article highlighted the organizations currently vying for the opportunity to redevelop Fort Scott, one the Presidio’s few untouched structures remaining.

In the piece, Jean Fraser, the trust’s chief executive officer said, “One of the challenges is that Fort Scott is a massive preservation project, the landscape as well as the buildings... We want the very best thinking for this remarkable space.”

Awesome job showcasing the work Presidio Trust and Fort Scott Project is doing to the San Francisco Chronicle, Kat!

Key team member Zenetta celebrated her 25th birthday this week! Never passing up an opportunity to celebrate, the team began the work day with a 90s jam session in Zenetta’s honor and later surprised her with a birthday lunch. Katie, Martina, Nicole, Hannah and Zenetta took a trip across the street to the Ferry Building and enjoyed Mexican food from Mijita. Zenetta said, “I Had a great birthday with my wonderful team! Still have ‘She’s So High Above Me’ stuck in my head. Ultimate birthday gift!” (Which Nicole and Martina did an excellent job singing. If PR fails, they can always start a band). Happy Birthday, Zenetta!
