In celebration of KINK FM’s 50th Anniversary, we present The Portland 50, a podcast series about the people who dreamt, built and championed the innovation, growth and uniqueness of Portland. Each episode is a narrative journey told by the founders, leaders and drivers behind some of Oregon’s best known companies, landmarks and industries.
In this week’s episode we feature Stan Amy and Kristi McFarland. Stan is one of the co-founders of New Seasons Market and now serves on its Board of Directors. Kristi was in HR and served as the chief people officer for four years, and recently took over as one of two co-presidents. New Seasons Market was founded in 2000, employs over 3,000 people and now has about 20 stores in Oregon, Southwest Washington and California. Most of the stores are in the Portland Metro region.
