OBM-April-2012-400px Oregon Business is the only business magazine in Oregon with a statewide reach and dedication. Our readership includes 30,000 top-level business executives, nonprofit leaders and policy makers, representing the highest level of  decision-making.

The magazine's investment in high-caliber, in-depth coverage means that readers don't just scan the headlines — they have a relationship with the magazine, spending an average of 41 minutes with each issue.

Oregon Business was founded in 1981. The magazine reaches business, political and civic leaders across the state. It reports on a wide range of big-tent business topics.

In addition to the print magazine, the OB editorial staff produces a Monday-Friday e-newsletter and edits oregonbusiness.com.


The signature project of the magazine is the 100 Best Companies to Work for in Oregon, and its two companion projects, the 100 Best Nonprofits and the 100 Best Green Companies.

In addition to substantive analysis of statewide business issues and compelling features, the magazine each month looks for stories in these departments:

  • Regional Reports: focuses on a specific city's or region's business issues
  • Industry Updates: inside the challenges and growth of specific sectors
  • Launch: profile of a start-up company
  • Input: a survey of what OB readers think about current topics.
  • Next: innovations from every sector
  • Tactics: interviews with CEOs about what it takes to thrive and survive
  • Powerlist: our ranking of the top companies in dozens of fields
