Tannus Quatre & Kyle FleischmannWe don’t always like to toot our own horn here at Vantage Clinical Solutions, but when others are willing to do it for us … well, we’re honored.

Recently, Cascade Business News, Central Oregon’s No. 1 business publication, recognized both of our founders – Tannus Quatre and Kyle Fleischmann – as prominent local business leaders under the age of 40 who “are building impressive careers while making a commitment to help their communities grow and prosper for future generations to enjoy.”

That quote was from Pamela Hulse Andrews, founder and CEO of Cascade Business News (CBN), who herself has made it a practice of regularly honoring the accomplishments of and providing a voice for Central Oregon entrepreneurs. One of the ways she does this is through her annual “Accomplished Under 40” list.

CBN’s 2013 list appeared in their June 5 print edition. In creating the list, it appears that leadership was weighted as one of the more significant attributes.

“In today’s extremely competitive business environment, standing out among your peers takes dedication, vision, talent, drive, and the ability to bring forth not only the best in yourself, but others as well,” Hulse Andrews wrote. “These are the building blocks of leadership, and to be recognized with this award illustrates that they possess these qualities in abundance.”

Other considerations for the award included education, social service, and corporate/professional affiliations. On the pages of CBN (and also on their website), both Tannus and Kyle’s qualifications for such an honor are outlined in detail, along with quotes regarding personal and professionally philosophies. We encourage you to visit the CBN site and read all the great things being said about our leaders here at Vantage (and others who were equally recognized) … because, like I said, we don’t like to toot our own horn.

Thank you for such an honor, Cascade Business News. The tight-knit team we have here at Vantage are truly proud to see our “coaches” get the recognition they so deserve.
