Gresham grads’ business among fastest growing companies

The Portland Business Journal recently recognized Portland-based Direct Placement as the seventh fastest growing privately owned company in Oregon and southwest Washington.

The magazine announced its selections of the top 100 companies at a banquet held in June. The award is presented to companies that demonstrate measured growth over a three-year period.

Direct Placement saw a revenue growth of 497 percent since 2010, as well as moving from a sole proprietor business to one with 14 employees and two offices.

Direct Placement was founded in 2009 by Adam Vanderpool and Jason Vanderpool, both graduates of Gresham High School.

The company offers Internet marketing services to more than 3,300 businesses. For more information, visit directplacement.co.
