Foundation and Event Planning Committee Member, Leupold & Stevens
Alexandra Burton is a fifth-generation shareholder of Leupold & Stevens, Inc. She joined the Family Council in June 2013 where she served her four-year term. In 2014, she joined the company’s Foundation after her grandfather stepped off and will continue to stay in this role as long as she has the opportunity to do so. She currently sits on the Events Committee with three other family members. Alex had her first job working for the company in the summer of 2012 as a temporary employee in the mounts and rings department on the manufacturing floor. In 2013, Alex was one of ten people selected to work as a full-time sales intern through the company’s Future Focus internship the Human Resources department created earlier that year. She continued to work as a part-time sales temp until February 2014. Since then Alex has completed her Bachelors of Science in Business Administration with a focus in Marketing from Portland State University, obtained her Project Management Training Certificate from PSU’s Center of Education for Business Executives and is now in the process of studying for the PMP certification exam. She is currently working at Portland General Electric through HTG, Inc. as Project Coordinator and Business Analyst. Alex plans on staying actively involved with Leupold & Stevens, Inc. whether it be through employment in later years or continuing serving on the council and various committees. She feels that its extremely important to have younger family members show interest in the company, not just through hobbies and family gatherings but through employment as well.
