Join us in welcoming Todd Lofgren to the Fish Team as our new Senior Policy Director!
Todd grew up in Wisconsin, with his Swedish father, a physical therapist working with children with physical disabilities, and an American mother, who owned her own small retail business.
Todd has embraced diverse cultures his entire life. He began his career as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Niger, West Africa, and then worked with a refugee resettlement agency in Tucson, Arizona. He also worked with the US Agency for International Development in Washington DC working on African issues.
Todd has a Master's in Public Administration and Policy from The University of Arizona. He has over 20 years of experience managing public, non-profit and private initiatives. From 2007 to 2015, Todd led a team to create innovative public-private partnerships at Portland Parks & Recreation. Prior to joining Commissioner Fish’s team, Todd spent two years living and working in Morocco, promoting economic development initiatives.
In his free time, Todd enjoys recreating with his family and friends in Portland parks and community centers, as well as hiking, fishing and skiing in Oregon's mountains and forests.
