Seattle Business Magazine’s Family Business Awards Program

Quality, consistency, flexibility. These terms often rise to the top of descriptions for the honorees inSeattle Business magazine’s Family Business Awards program. This year is no different. Most of these companies have at least three generations of family ownership, while some carry a legacy stretching back five generations or more. A common thread among all of them: growing the business while serving their communities and paying close attention to the personal touch in customer service. Congratulations to the 13 honorees in the 2015 Family Business Awards!

SILVER AWARD
Westhill Inc.
Seattle
Take the experience of 41 years in residential remodeling and custom home construction built on strong client relationships and you have “The Westhill Way,” a motto backed by ongoing training and internal communications. Continuing that legacy, two daughters and a nephew of Chuck Russell, the son of company founder Charlie Russell, now work at Westhill and are learning the ropes. Westhill emerged strong from the recession and the decline in construction activity, reporting revenue growth of about $1 million in each of the past two years. Westhill employees give time and donations to build acessibility ramps and home makeovers for low-income neighbors. Westhill also holds a popular community recycling event collecting household items and donating tree seedlings.

Westhill’s Annual Spring Recycling Event

Spring was certainly here Saturday when hundreds of people turned out to have their personal documents shredded.
We collected used electronics, yard debri, wood debri and lots of gently used clothing.

For the first year ever we collected about 20 flags to be retired by VFW Post 2995, Veterans of Foreign War in Redmond WA, for their annual Flag Retirement ceremony.

Thank you to all our volunteers and participants for making this a successful event.

Special thanks:

American Data Guard – Document shredding
PC Recycle and Repair – Electronics recycling
United Recycle – Yard and wood debri
Fir Run Nursery – Hemlock seedlings

Westhill Celebrates 40 Years!

Wow! An event that will be remembered. Thanks to all the wonderful people who came by to celebrate Westhill’s 40th Anniversary. Over 200 people enjoyed the band “Rico’s Revenge “, the food catered by “Pacific Island Grill “ and the prizes… and giveaways from our valued subcontractors and suppliers! John Carlson and the KVI team helped promote and entertained the crowd. Chuck presented Charlie with a framed hammer – the one Charlie used throughout his lifetime to create the dreams. It was especially an honor to be joined by Westhill’s very first client Bruce and Lois of Bothell (Job 001). Thank you to everyone who has touched the lives of Westhill over the past 40 years.
