Katharine Nester honored at the 2018 Women of Influence Awards!

Reading time:

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. Other winners include powerhouses of innovation like Janet Campbell of Cambia Health Solutions, Megan Bigelow of Jama Software, and Sarah Joannides of New Seasons Market!
