What a night! The crew from Ruby Receptionists attended the Portland Business Journal’s annual awards reception honoring the 100 fastest-growing private companies in Portland last Thursday, and it was truly an evening to remember. Ruby placed 34th among the amazing businesses recognized, with an 86.62% growth rate over the past year. This is the second year our virtual receptionist company has been honored by the Portland Business Journal, which made the event all the more special.
We were thrilled to see Ruby President Jill Nelson accept the award (and blow a kiss to the Ruby bunch from stage in the process). The always-animated Rubys made themselves known–if there had been an award for loudest cheering, we would certainly have taken first place! It was a magical evening spent mingling with folks from other local businesses and celebrating with co-workers in the beautiful Portland Art Museum ballroom.
I am so proud to work with a group of vibrant, intelligent people who truly care about their community, their work, and one another. Here’s to hoping we make the list next year. I can’t wait to celebrate again!
