Consumer Cellular Named One of the 100 Best Companies to Work for in Oregon

PORTLAND, Ore. --(Business Wire)--

Consumer Cellular (www.consumercellular.com), the number-one rated cellphone service and exclusive wireless provider for AARP members, has been selected as one of the 100 Best Companies to Work For in Oregon by Oregon Business Magazine. This is the fourth consecutive year Consumer Cellular has received the honor.

The 100 Best Companies to Work For in Oregon list recognizes large, medium and small companies for excellence in best practices toward creating great places to work. After compiling the results, Oregon Business ranked Consumer Cellular as No. 16 in the large company category, which recognizes businesses with more than 100 employees in Oregon.

"We are thrilled to be named one of the 100 Best Places to Work in Oregon once again," said John Marick, Consumer Cellular CEO. "Our ever-expanding team is constantly working to ensure we keep the same values we had as a two-employee company in 1995. With Consumer Cellular now approaching 1,000 full-time employees, we're pleased to foster a culture that attracts great people and is recognized by awards like this one."

In addition to this award, Consumer Cellular has been selected by The Oregonian as a Top Workplace in Oregon and SW Washington for the second consecutive year, and was named to Inc. Magazine's 5,000 Fastest Growing Private Companies list for the fifth year in a row. The company's success has led to significant milestones, including its recent fifth anniversary of partnership with AARP as the exclusive wireless provider for the organization's members.

Oregon Business has conducted the annual study of best practices for the past 21 years.
