The Small Business Association (SBA) of Portland recently presented Irene Firmat, Full Sail Brewing's Founder and CEO with the SBA's District Impact Award for her entrepreneurial spirit, leadership and positive impact on the local community. The awards were presented at the SBA Portland's Small Business Week Awards Gala May 12th at the Oregon Convention Center.
Each of the winners and champions went through a detailed selection process and should be justifiably proud of this award from the SBA. "The small business winners and champions are an incredible group of people and I am honored to acknowledge and celebrate them. As a small brewer, Full Sail has provided much to their local community and reshaped the American beer culture. Their employees' shared equity in the Full Sail Brewing Company creates a powerful set of stakeholders with a great sense of roots about where they live and work. Irene and her employees understand the impact a business has in a smaller community. We are pleased to honor the company's endeavors," said Portland SBA's Acting District Director, Robert DuCote.
