Four members from Bellevue-based businesses have been named to the board of CougsFirst! The organization is an initiative of alumni of Washington State University who believe the bond Cougars share around academics and athletics also extends to the business arena.

The organization held its 2nd annual Cougs First trade show April 23 at Bellevue's Meydenbauer Center, drawing 85 exhibitors (a sellout) and an attendance of approximately 500.

Bellevue representatives on the Cougs First board are Glenn Osterhout​, chairman of the Board, founder, Cetera Advisor Networks; Rob Tobeck, vice chairman of the board, founder, Griffin MacLean Insurance Brokers; Mike Bernard, board member, founder, Madison Cooke Inc. and Paul Dent, secretary & treasurer, founder, Griffin MacLean Insurance Brokers.
