DESIGNER DIARIES: A Look Back At Some Of The Things GHID Accomplished In June

Although we have recently experienced torrential downpours in Portland, summer is truly upon us!!! Over the last month, GHID has hit some of the most rewarding highlights in the company's history.  One of which was when GHID was named Portland Business Journal's 100 Fastest Growing Private Companies in 2014. Additionally, Garrison was flown out to Cambria's manufacturing site and headquarters as a Style Maker,  and we were selected to partner with HBA + Portland Monthly to host a VIP tour of the Street of Dreams + more!

Earlier this month, Garrison wrote a very nice message about being awarded and named one of the Fastest Growing Private Companies to everyone on our Facebook page, and if you happened to have missed out on his personal note regarding this award, fear not, I've included it below for your viewing pleasure.

First off, thanks to all that have supported GHID the last 4.5 yrs. A huge shout out to those that have been a part of our exponential growth, past employees, current employees, vendors, suppliers and most of all our clients. This type of growth comes with the general pains of running a corporation and that takes a lot of patience and understanding on everyone's part. But now we celebrate..thanks to all those that have been sending us congratulatory messages this's official: GHID is one 2013's Fastest Growing Private 100 Companies in Oregon. I thank each of you that have given us a nod of encouragement! With great humbleness, Garrison (and our amazing team)

Garrison was among a select group of influential designers from across the U.S. and in Toronto that attended Cambria’s Style Makers Summit in Minneapolis. This is an exclusive event where the designers get to experience the latest in Cambria innovations, and we have to say that they sure know how to treat their lucky attendees! Garrison and the designers attended a Twin's game, they were carted around town in a VIP bus, saw Cambria's showroom and got a behind the scenes look at how Cambria products are manufactured.
