Welcome to SBI’s “First Ten Years.” This is a year long photo journalism project commemorating our 10th year in business.

Every Sunday morning we will publish a photograph of an SBI’er “in action” which is meant to illustrate how much fun we have working with you.


This project has one purpose: to celebrate you, our clients and followers.


Companies, firms, and fads come and go. But, because of you, SBI, the firm we love, has become a leader and has withstood the test of time. And as a result, smiles have been put on many faces. Thank you.


You can follow the project, and get to know our people, at #SBIFirstTenYears.



Portland and Singapore have dinner in Tokyo!


At SBI we go out of our way to create unique and memorable experiences for our clients.  On the right is Scott Gruher, our Vice President of Client Success.  Scott lives in Portland, Oregon.  Scott was in Tokyo recently working with a client. While there, he reached out to a different client who lives in Singapore and learned they were both in Tokyo.


Worlds apart, a dinner in Tokyo is arranged.   This photo was taken at a small, hidden, traditional Japanese restaurant. The circumstances conspired to produce a memorable evening far away from home.
