Community Update: CEOX
CEOX was formed to take on the challenge no other organization has dared to confront: the vast gender inequity in the CEO seat. Luann Abrams, founder of CEOX, is a partner in The Abrams Group, advising, investing in and supporting the people, companies and causes that will “leave it better.” Prior to starting CEOX, she ran an early-stage venture fund with a dedicated mentorship program in Bend.

Luann has a background in aerospace engineering and spent most of her 15 years at start-up Columbia Aircraft, where she oversaw the certification of several aircraft models and ensured that all designs met applicable regulations. Due to her diligence and integrity, she was granted the authority to sign off on regulatory compliance on behalf of the FAA prior to aircraft delivery. In 2017 she was inducted into the International Air & Space Hall of Fame as part of the Golden Eagles Flight Team.
