Katharine Nester honored at the 2018 Women of Influence Awards!

Though she’s been battle-tested in the jungles of the Silicon Valley and private equity world, [Katharine Nester] leads through positivity, kindness, empathy and pragmatism.” – Jill Nelson, Ruby® Receptionists CEO and Founder

Katharine Nester, Ruby’s Chief Product and Technology Officer, was recognized among the top 25 Portland Women of Influence at the Portland Business Journal Awards Luncheon last week.
