Direct Placement named 7th fastest growing private company in Oregon
At a banquet honoring the 100 fastest growing private companies in Oregon and Southwest Washington, Direct Placement was presented as the 7th fastest growing private company in the region.
The award, presented by the Portland Business Journal, measures year-over-year growth of privately-held companies over a three year period. Direct Placement LLC has seen growth of over 497% percent since 2010.
In addition to significant revenue gains, Direct Placement has grown from a sole proprietor, CEO Adam Vanderpool, to a company which is home to 16 employees with offices in Portland, Oregon and Kenai, Alaska.
“I’ll admit that when I first started my business, it was because I simply wanted to get out of debt and I wanted to control my own destiny,” Vanderpool said. “However, it only took having a few employees before I realized I wanted to offer a lot more. I wanted to create opportunity and I wanted to develop leaders.”
Direct Placement has served over 3,300 businesses since its founding in 2009.[line]
