There was an amazing energy in the air last night at the Sheraton Hotel in downtown Seattle. The Puget Sound Business Journal hosted an awards dinner for the 100 Fastest-Growing Private Companies in Washington. Nearly 500 people attended this on-the-edge-of-your-seat countdown from #100 to #1. The recognition and event is all about celebrating Washington-based businesses that fuel the state’s economy and rapid growth. These 100 companies alone recorded more than $2.08 billion in revenue in 2013 and employ more than 8,805 people.
“And ranking at #5 is…”
We felt honored just to be attending the event, but I have to be honest. It felt really good when they got to #10 and we still hadn’t heard our name called. “Now this is very cool!” I thought to myself. They asked each winner to give an acceptance speech of sorts in 10 words or less. Jason Kaufman, our President & CEO, walked up to the microphone and said, “We trust our people, work hard, work from home, and wear Snuggies.” Well said, Jason!
The last few years have been a very exciting time of growth for our company and we sincerely feel fortunate to have worked with many great clients and partners. We appreciate all the support, trust, and friendship and look forward to attending the event again next year.
