A Party for Nawzad Othman

Host: A group of Otakians

When: Thursday, June 21, 2012 from 6 pm to 9 pm

Where: Laurelhurst Club, 3721 SE Ankeny Street, Portland, Oregon

It was a perfect evening at Laurelhurst Park as a group of Otakians, past and current, joined together to honor Nawzad Othman. Great food made by the guests, a live band, and fun speeches made for an exceptionally enjoyable evening.

It was a real celebration and a joy to be there to honor Nawzad Othman.
Nawzad and his founding partners, Ralph Tahran and Greg Kurahashi founded Otak in June of 1981. Nawzad guided Otak to great success and growth.

Insight and creative vision, energy and unwavering dedication, integrity and ethics, grace and humility, wisdom and passion, generosity and trust in us, and the constant drive for innovation and improvement. These are just some of the attributes of Nawzad Othman and the spirit he brought to Otak to create a culture and environment where we all were all empowered to do our best. I worked for Nawzad for 27 years and absolutely loved every single minute.

Whether you were at the party having fun, or if you had to miss it, grab some popcorn and enjoy the video of our celebration honoring Nawzad.

Thumbs Up Nawzad!
