Access Tech has been collaborating with Oregon Public Broadcasting (OPB), a key player in journalism and community service, since 2011. While we had the pleasure of working with Steve Bass, OPB’s former CEO, and we wish him well in his next chapter; today we highlight a pivotal moment in this partnership as OPB welcomes Rachel Smolkin as their new President and CEO.
