Meet our new board members

We bring Oregonians together to safeguard the water, air and land we all love and share.

Oregon Environmental Council is governed by a volunteer board of directors who each serve for two-year terms. Our current and former board members include a diverse community of stakeholders, from professionals, academics and experts, providing a range of expertise from conservation, to climate, to finance, and forestry.

This spring, we are pleased to introduce two new board members, volunteering their time to protect what we love here in Oregon.

Marissa Madrigal

Marissa Madrigal is the Chief Operating Officer of Multnomah County, Oregon. She directs the day-to-day operations of Multnomah County, Oregon’s most populous county which includes the city of Portland, the Portland International Airport and the scenic Columbia River Gorge.

Marissa oversees and manages county corporate initiatives and seven county departments. She advises the elected Chair on operational and countywide decisions including the creation of the executive budget; serves as primary liaison between county departments and policy makers; ensures efficient, effective and transparent use of public resources for the public good; and works closely with the Multnomah County Chair and Board of Commissioners to operationalize board policy and initiatives.

Marissa lives in southeast Portland with her two children. She is currently enrolled at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California and will earn a Master of Arts in Security Studies in March 2018. She loves to hike, walk, run, write and cook.

Peter Koehler

Peter H. Koehler, Jr., is the principal of Koehler ADR, LLC, which offers arbitration and mediation services for commercial and sports-related business disputes.

Peter retired in October 2014 as Vice-President, Legal, for NIKE, Inc., where he managed the global Legal Department and advised the business. Prior to NIKE, Peter was a partner with Tonkon Torp LLP, Portland Oregon, including serving as the Managing Partner from 1997–2002.
