Sponsored by Umpqua Bank & Capstone CPAs
Recently we awardd the Central Oregon Fastest 20 Growing Businesses in Central Oregon at the Oxford Hotel in downtown Bend. While those that qualified for the Top 20 are aware they are on the list, they didn’t find out who is the #1 fastest growing business until the unveiling at the event.
Umpqua Bank and Capstone CPAs teamed with CBN to recognize the fastest-growing companies located in the Tri-County region. The qualifying criteria for this group included companies established and operating on or before January 1, 2020, with gross annual revenues of at least $100,000 in the last fiscal year, reporting consistent year-over-year growth in earnings through 2022, confirmed by our professionals at Umpqua and Capstone.
The top 20 featured a wide array of business types and industry sectors, from hi-tech, real estate, services industry, architecture, arts and more. These companies are reflective a wide variety of industry for the local economy, with a heavy emphasis on the entrepreneurial spirit for which Central Oregon is well known.
With the endless debate of recession or no recession, Central Oregon’s economy keeps rising above the pace of the national average. Umpqua Banks Senior Vice President, Regional Manager for Willamette Valley Central Oregon, Marie Fidler said, “Umpqua Bank is proud to continue in its sixth year, our support of Central Oregon’s Fastest 20!
“It’s exciting to see the incredible growth of these businesses in our community and Umpqua Bank is honored to recognize and acknowledge the hard work of all of the businesses nominated — Congratulations!!”
Lance Brant, managing partner of Capstone, added, “We need to recognize small business owners and their positive efforts in our community. Small Businesses are the engine to our business environment, and they provide local opportunities for employees and future owners of small businesses. I could not be prouder to support this event.”
