Christopher Ard

He/Him | Commercial Associate

Employer: Bank of America

Moved Here from: Los Angeles, CA on September 2022

Why did you move here?

I moved to Portland to further my career and accept a Finance role with Bank of America.

What is one thing that you need/want from a community right now?

I would like to build my personal and professional network, learn about the culture and demographics of Portland from current resident, and meet like-minded individuals who enjoy the beauty of life. On a personal note, I love to eat so all food recommendations are more than welcome.

What kind of civic connection are you interested in making?

I want to become involved in minority/underserved youth mentorship, teaching financial literacy to economically depressed communities, and fundraising for initiatives that align themselves with those goals. I'm open to most volunteering and chamber of commerce activities.
