The Seven Peaks Board of Directors is pleased to announce the addition of Mike Goldstein as a special advisor to assist the school with important financial analysis and the formation of new strategies and systems designed to adhere with organizational best practices.
Mike Goldstein was formerly vice president of operations at Deschutes Brewery where he worked on complex finance and operational matters that helped move Deschutes into one of America’s premiere independent craft brewers.
“It’s my pleasure to be of service to Seven Peaks and a resource for the board,” says Goldstein. “As an outside advisor, I bring fresh eyes to the operations.”
According to Gary Fish, owner and president of Deschutes, Goldstein offers a wealth of “experience in engineering, employee management, quality control, expansion and efficiency measures.” Mr. Fish adds, “Mike’s work experience, personal ethics and drive to succeed” are valuable assets for any organization.
An accomplished executive, Goldstein holds degrees in Industrial Engineering and Business Finance from Oregon State University. He worked for McDonnell Douglas in Long Beach, CA, and then returned to Oregon to work for Tillamook for six years, ending up as plant manager, overseeing every aspect of Tillamook’s production. Goldstein also served as a consultant and interim CFO for Techsoft 3D.
“We are very fortunate to have Mike join our efforts by generously donating his time and expertise to helping the school during its restructuring,” says SPS cofounder & board member Carol Tobey. “Both the Fish and Goldstein families care deeply about the future of Seven Peaks.”
Mike Goldstein and his wife Kirsten have lived in Bend for over 20 years, and Kirsten is a fourth-generation Oregonian – her ancestors came to Oregon in the 1850s on the Oregon Trail. They have three children, Hannah, age 23; Riley, age 21; and Lauren, age 19. Goldstein also served on the boards of directors for the Central Oregon Family Resource Center and for the Jewish Community of Central Oregon, and is currently on the Advisory Board for the Entrepreneurial program at OSU, Corvallis.
