  In Memory: Brian H. Bjornson, Chairman of the Board for Norris & Stevens. Inc.

It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we say goodbye to Brian H. Bjornson.

Brian was a long-time TCN member and Chairman of the Board for TCN's Portland affiliate, Norris & Stevens. Inc. Under his tireless leadership, Norris & Stevens has grown to be one of the largest locally-owned, full-service commercial real estate firms in Oregon and SW Washington, employing over 75 people in their downtown Portland headquarters. Survived by his wife Debbie and children Haldan and Anika, he passed away on Tuesday, August 11, 2020, after an extended illness.

As all who met him know, Brian was a larger-than-life figure with a tremendous passion for commercial real estate. He began his career with Norris & Stevens in 1972, and became a majority principal in 1987 along with Robert Stutte. When Mr. Stutte retired in 2014, ownership of the company was transferred to the remaining partners, an Executive Committee was formed naming Mr. Bjornson Chairman. With his remarkable passion, experience, and energy for commercial real estate and property management Brian founded and grew Norris & Stevens' Multi-Family Property Management division to more than 9,000 units under management.
