Ruby Receptionists Receives Fastest Growing Companies Award for Exceptional Sixth Year in a Row

Ruby Receptionists Earns #55 Ranking From Portland Business Journal

PORTLAND, OR--(Marketwired - Jun 21, 2013) -  For the sixth consecutive year, Ruby Receptionists is pleased to announce it is again one of the "100 Fastest-Growing Private Companies in Oregon," according to the Portland Business Journal. A leading provider of live virtual receptionist services, Ruby Receptionists secured the #55 position on this year's list after doubling its revenue from 2011 and growing into an $11 million business in 2013.

"We are honored to win this award recognizing our growth and success for the sixth year," said Jill Nelson, founder and CEO of Ruby Receptionists. "To achieve this sustained growth, we continue to invest in our company and staff to provide clients with excellent service and build meaningful connections in today's virtual world. This year alone, we've achieved some exciting milestones by opening a second location and growing our extremely talented group of Rubys."

Portland Business Journal selected Ruby Receptionists as the #55 fastest-growing private company in Oregon based on its earnings and revenue growth over the past three years and privately-held status. Experiencing record growth, Ruby, which provides live virtual receptionist services to more than 2,500 small businesses throughout North America, grossed nearly $8 million in 2012 and is currently on track to gross over $11 million in 2013. To support its thriving business, Ruby expanded its footprint by adding a new office location in Beaverton and promoted nearly one-third of its staff over the past year. The company also expanded its award-winning team by 45 percent to 135 employees and plans to hire an additional 115 by the end of 2015.

In addition to being one of "100 Fastest-Growing Private Companies in Oregon" for six years, Ruby has been recognized for its dynamic culture, excellent customer service and sustainable business practices.
