This year was full of growth and accomplishments for our team. While we can’t dwell on everything that happened, we’ve rounded up some highlights. But before we dive in, we’d like to thank all of our clients and colleagues for making 2016 another outstanding year!
In June, LegalRev was named one of the Portland Business Journal’s “100 Fastest Growing Companies.” We made #83 on the list, with $2.1 million in revenue and 75% year-to-year growth. We, along with the other 99 growing companies, were honored at the Portland Convention Center with a tiki-themed night full of fun refreshments, photo booths, Polynesian dancers and more!
2. We Moved!
Due to a growing team, LegalRev moved its office from Vancouver, Washington to the bustling and creative Alberta Arts District in Portland, Oregon. This year we doubled our staff and moved into a 5,500 square foot space which we intend to fill over the coming year.
LegalRev’s leader, Darin Fenn, has been a board member of Portland’s premier SEO networking organization SEMpdx for awhile now. He also serves as Charity Chair and this year we got even more of our team involved. Our own Rachel Schmidt was named to the board as Sponsorships Chair, and our entire production team became members of the organization.
4. We Helped Our Community
This year we were able to donate time and talent to two awesome Portland-based organizations. Per our involvement with SEMpdx, LegalRev was proud to build a new website for local nonprofit Reading Results, a stellar organization committed to increasing literacy among underrepresented students in an effort to set kids up for bright futures.
We also built a new website for local tango group Dueling Tango Duos, a group responsible for bridging cultural gaps through the power of song and dance. The new site showcased their community impact and served as a portfolio for an upcoming university grant.
5. We Got Certified
We’re always striving to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to best practices. To that end, we pushed ourselves to become Google AdWords-certified. In total, we had one team member certified in the Search category, one in the Analytics category, and eight in Mobile Ads. We’re looking forward to improving our service offerings and helping our clients rank even better in the next year!
We can’t wait to continue working with all of you in 2017 and seeing everything the new year has to offer. Cheers to all from everyone at LegalRev!
