2018 Awards & Reflection

Taking a moment to look back, and forward. 
Tessa Ward

It's not polite to brag, but it is recommended to reflect. That's what we're doing with this post as one year ends and another year begins. 2018 was our biggest, most exciting year yet. Our company and community grew in so many ways, and the impact we're making together didn't go unnoticed. Our efforts were recognized through several official awards we received this year (some we didn’t even know we were in the running for). We wanted to take a moment to celebrate the accomplishments with you. 

And the award goes to...

PSBJ 40 Under 40Our Co-Founder and CMO Ty Collins was named to Puget Sound Business Journal’s “40 Under 40.” The hand-selected list features the brightest and most innovative leaders in Washington State.

Fun Fact: Our very own Mike Radenbaugh (Co-Founder/CEO) and Quan Ralkowski (Director of Operations) received this award in previous years. 

BuildingGreen Badge-1The RadWagon was selected as a best green product for 2019 by BuildingGreen, an organization promoting sustainable development. The award not only recognizes the thoughtful design of the bike, but the importance of eco-friendly transportation.
