About Keith Wilson

Keith Wilson was born and raised in North Portland, one of five children, attending
Portsmouth/Cesar Chavez, Roosevelt High School, Portland Community College, and Oregon
State University before earning a Master of Business Administration from the University of
Portland.

Keith began his career in television, which eventually took him to thirty countries before
returning to Portland to take the helm of TITAN Freight Systems in 2004, the business his
father co-founded decades earlier. Reimagining TITAN as a safety leader, green
transportation innovator, and artificial intelligence incubator, Keith led the company to
eliminate all fossil fuel usage in their Portland facility, pioneer heavy-duty electric vehicles, and
earn a coveted “B-Corp” status for their commitment to community and planet. Keith has a
management team comprising over 50% BIPOC and LGBTQ+ directors. He has grown TITAN
six times while fostering an unmatched “Vision Zero” safety culture with no injury/accidents
over five years and a near-perfect Oregon SAIF worker injury experience rating. Keith has
won Innovator of the Year two years running for these efforts, among other awards and
accolades.

As a civic leader, Keith spearheaded the creation of the Multnomah County Homeless Court
Program, designed to divert vulnerable individuals from the justice system and into supportive
services, employment, and housing. He is the Vice Chair for Word is Bond, an organization
dedicated to mentoring Portland’s future leaders. Keith volunteers and mentors homeless vets
and students and serves as an executive committee member of the US High-Speed Rail
Coalition and International Road Federation board member. He is also the founder and
director of the political action committee Breathe Easy Oregon, which has advanced
bipartisan legislation to support Oregon’s economy while protecting its priceless natural
resources.

In 2023, Keith founded Shelter Portland, an innovative nonprofit of civic and federal leaders
and local providers with a proven blueprint to end unsheltered homelessness based on
successful efforts in other cities. On rare occasions when he is not leading his company or
giving back to the community, Keith enjoys the great outdoors with his wife Katherine and
children Lilianna and Noah.
