Jon Isaacs, the public face of Uber throughout its often contentious tenure in Oregon since 2016, will join the Portland Business Alliance later this month as the group's lobbyist.

Isaacs previously served as chief of communications and public affairs for Portland Public Schools, executive director of the Oregon League of Conservation Voters, and state director and campaign manager for U.S. Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.).

"We are thrilled to have Jon's talent on board as we work to build a more equitable economy and resilient business community for our region and beyond," says Andrew Hoan, president and CEO of the Portland Business Alliance.

Isaacs is also enthused.

"After three successful years working to build a culture of cooperation and service at Uber I am excited to join new CEO Andrew Hoan's team as he writes the next chapter for the Portland Business Alliance," says Isaacs.
