IMG_2096Gunther Oakey is corporate counsel for NovaTech, a private software engineering and automation solutions company where he focuses on contracts, service agreements and partnerships as well as managing outside counsel. This role has given him a broad perspective on legal, business and management issues.

Gunther is also well versed in  public and social issues, having acted as a legislative correspondent for the U.S. House of Representatives and as  a student organizer and campaign office director for MASSPIRG. At MASSPIRG, he recruited and trained students to lobby state legislature and congress on issues including environmental concerns, student loans and homelessness.

Outside of corporate and legislative environments, Gunther is also working with Wiglbot, a Portland company that has developed an interactive educational robot controlled by musical instruments. Wiglbot dances (like the gala stars!) and lights up to help children learn a variety of skills from math, to engineering, to music.

Gunther also enjoys Oregon’s great outdoors and ballroom dance. He’s excited to put on his dancing shoes for this year’s gala and is looking forward to supporting PCRI’s work to provide affordable housing as a tool for families to achieve stability and self-sufficiency.
