Ferguson Wellman Capital Management is pleased to announce that the firm has been named by the Portland Business Journal as one of the Most Admired Companies. Of the 10 financial services companies listed, the firm was ranked third, with Umpqua Bank being first place. There were a total of 151 companies nominated in the financial services category. Ferguson Wellman was also voted 18th across all categories. This is the ninth consecutive year that the company has made this exclusive list. The list is compiled by surveying over 3,000 CEOs across the state of Oregon and southwest Washington. The CEOs were asked to select two companies they most admired in eight industries. They were also asked to rate the two companies they selected in each category on the following attributes: (1) innovation (2) quality of services or products (3) community involvement and (4) quality of management and (5) branding and marketing.
“We were honored to have been selected, along with many other companies that we respect and admire throughout the state,” said Steve Holwerda, CFA, chief operating officer and principal.
