OPB CEO praises Jan Boyd's achievements

I visited the “way back machine” to see what things looked like around the time you  arrived. Not recalling the precise date, I picked a date about six years. Here’s what the site  looked like on October 12, 2015. What we have today is a huge leap forward. It’s an experience fitting for a dominant local/regional journalism organization. The work has in many cases been incremental or evolutionary so it’s easy to miss the larger picture of how things changed. We’re now putting our strongest differentiator in full view – the stories that we uniquely tell. You played a critical role in this evolution. It wasn’t easy but we got there. I’m very appreciative for what you did to move OPB forward to fulfill its larger public service mission. Thank you and here’s wishing you all the best for what comes next.
