SVP International

Charlie Gilkey, Director

Charlie is a Business Growth Strategist specializing in strategy execution, business planning, team development, and entrepreneurship. He chose to join SVP because we encompass his three civic priorities: education, racial equity, and socially-conscious entrepreneurship. He strongly believes that education is the most significant pathway to racial and economic justice, and knows that members of our priority population are behind out of the gate due to a lack of pre-K options.

He chose to join SVP Portland’s Board because he appreciates SVP’s preventative mission—addressing the root cause of the opportunity gap rather than the effects of that gap later in life.
