The Ruby® Receptionists team was out in full force to attend the Portland Business Journal‘s “100 Fastest Growing Private Companies” event last night. We were thrilled to learn that our virtual receptionist service made #38 on the list! This is our fourth consecutive year making the list, and we’ve actually jumped up seven spots since last year!

This year’s theme was outer space, and we had a blast indeed! There was astronaut ice cream, star-shaped cake pops, and inflatable space ships (one of which we were lucky enough to get as a souvenir). The night even included a raffle to win cool prizes — and our very own Director of Culture Sarah Sackett won a color nook from event sponsor Comcast Business Class!

We especially enjoyed being able to meet a few of our clients whom we answer phones for and put a face to the name! Our virtual receptionist team also got a chance to get to know some of our fellow Entrepreneurs’ Organization members. Congratulations to all of the EO and EO Accelerator members who made the list: Kinco Glove, Anvil Media, Capacity Commercial Group, Mortgage Trust, ISITE Design (who won a 5 year Lighthouse Award!), Inavero, and Spot Color Studio!

We’d like to extend a huge thank you to our clients for supporting us and being such outspoken evangelists for our virtual receptionist service! And we’d also like to thank our virtual receptionist team for providing such exceptional service and Creating Community wherever you go!

Here are a few photos from the night:
