Remote Medical International was recently ranked #147 on the INC 500. With a growth rate of 1,206.6% between 2005 and 2008, the award is a real tribute to the hard work and dedication of the members of the RMI team. While we continue to grow at a similar pace, being listed among the fastest growing companies in the country provided a short break in which we took a deep breath to appreciate the dedication of our staff and strong relationships we enjoy with our clients.
While at the party last week, I was taken aback by the friendships, teamwork and focused execution that has become a cornerstone of the RMI culture and it is a privilege to work with such a competent and interesting group of people.
It was also an opportune time to recall our history and truly appreciate what we have become. During a toast, Christine Avakian, the third employee hired at RMI, recalled the time when I shared a desk and a phone with Chris Kenney (Director of the Equipment & Supply Group) in a small 100 square foot office. With operations in 6/7 continents and all of the major oceans, it is easy to forget where we started and that it wasn’t all that long ago.
It has truly been an honor to work both with our staff and our clients. We will continue to move along with the mission of providing peace of mind for our clients operating in the worlds most austere and extreme places. We will also grow only as fast as we can effectively deliver our products and services at the level of quality that you can count on from us.
Thank you for helping us get there.
