Joe Welsh ‘92
While at Linfield College, Joe played basketball for two years before joining the coaching staff, eventually serving as the Head Junior Varsity coach leading the team to one of their best seasons, including wins over several Oregon Community College programs. He was also active in student government as well as the Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity.
Joe worked as a consultant for his Fraternity immediately out of college, traveling to campuses on the East coast and Midwest, and then returned to Portland to join Merrill Lynch as a retail stockbroker. In 1999 he joined Intel Corporation where he has worked for the last 15 years. In those 15 years he’s had a varied career including roles in procurement, engineering, product development and marketing. This has also included two separate international assignments, one in Shanghai, PRC and his current assignment in Taipei, Taiwan.
He is currently in Intel’s Sales and Marketing Group as Global Account Manager for Asia Pacific. He manages the sales team that calls on the Asia design and procurement centers for Dell Computer, one of Intel’s largest customers.
Outside of work he enjoys traveling with his wife of 15 years and 3 young daughters, ages 12, 10 and 6. He plays just enough golf to retain a single digit handicap, and continues to play basketball a couple times a week.
