Meet District Manager Kathy Madore

Not many Business Districts can boast of two professional sports teams, a convention center, and (once upon a time) the largest shopping center in the country. The Lloyd District can! And Venture Portland’s Kathy Madore has the distinct privilege of working with the Lloyd Community Association (LCA) to serve the businesses and community in this bustling district.

Kathy has worked as a District Organizer for Venture Portland since 2019. Previously working in St. Johns, Kathy now brings her talents to the Lloyd District, where she appreciates its walkability and central NE Portland location. Kathy is especially excited about the revitalization of the Lloyd Center Mall, and equally thrilled that the beloved ice rink will, for now, remain (phew!). Among other things, Kathy is bringing Lloyd District businesses together by planning events, organizing an LCA membership campaign, promoting businesses and the district on social media, and sending out monthly newsletters.

When not working, Kathy likes to hike, play tennis, and do puzzles. She’s also a pizza connoisseur and counts Red Sauce Pizza and Apizza Scholls as two of her favorites. If you see Kathy venturing through Lloyd, make sure to say “hey!”
