GRAYBOX was recently recognized by Inc. Magazine for being the 5th fastest growing privately-owned company in Portland, OR in 2016. When compared to all other contenders in the state of Oregon, GRAYBOX was the 7th fastest growing company. We were #370 when ranked nationwide.
"From a design and web development agency to a comprehensive creative services firm, GRAYBOX's evolution has landed it big clients..." reported Guadalupe Gonzalez at Inc. Magazine. Amongst the team, this growth spurt could be felt by staff when we went from being a digital consulting firm with four employees at the end of 2012 to 24 employees at the end of 2015 ‚ currently at the end of 2016 we have 32 employees.
Inc. Magazine also reported on our growth path that, "In three years, No. 370 [GRAYBOX] grew to more than $2.1 million in revenue in 2015, from just under $200,000 in 2012." This equals to a 3-year growth rate of 1,038%. In late summer we were recognized by Inc. Magazine as well for making #370 on the "Inc. 500" list.
What's next for GRAYBOX?
"We look forward to continuing to be trusted advisors for our current clients. Something we value deeply at GRAYBOX is our relationships. At its core, our work is about developing partnerships, not just executing on projects," says GRAYBOX Founder, Paul Weinert.
Growth is a natural consequence of work well done, but growth for its own sake not our ultimate goal. GRAYBOX's reason for being is to be effective and helpful digital partners to the businesses we work with. As 2017 approaches, we strive to keep our eyes to the horizon but our feet firmly planted on the ground. Thank you to all our wonderful clients and our dedicated and bright team for another great year!
