About Us

Boly:Welch Team 2018

Diane Boly and Pat Welch have been active and successful business partners in the Portland community since ’75. Together they have built a successful and sustainable recruiting and consulting firm, matching clients with top talent.

And, we’ve made it our business to connect with organizations that represent the unique patchwork of our Portland Metro community. The Rose City is the bullseye for foodie, bicycle-centric companies and start-ups – good news for the Boly:Welch team of local connectors! The deep web of relationships continues to grow over 30 years of successful placements and human capital solutions.

Backed by our local market presence, financial strength, business partnerships and tenured staff in each of our service areas, we consistently exceed client expectations.

As you get to know our team, you’ll learn that our commitment to community and sustainability is more than just words. Active volunteerism and philanthropy run deep within the Boly:Welch culture — in fact, they’re in our DNA. We’re also above average on the pet friendly side, so you’ll likely hear a bark or a yip when you call or stop by to meet with us. It’s about creating a work environment that brings out the best in all of us — and a philosophy that has earned recognition as one of the 100 Best Companies to Work for in Oregon since 2003 and as a Certified B Corporation.

The August 2015 announcement of Andrew Welch as company President aligned the agency’s vision to maintain local ownership, a unique culture and reputation for excellence with a shifting generational landscape. This change helps us maintain a sustainable and community-minded philosophy for the future leadership structure of the company.
