The 2013 Fortune 500 was just published and each major Northwest metro—Seattle, Portland and Boise—all ranked. As a region, Washington, Idaho and Oregon had eleven top companies making the list. While some mid-sized states, like North Carolina, had more than the entire Northwest, eleven is a solid showing. Especially when year-over-year ranking is considered; eight out of the eleven companies posted increases versus 2012.
Below is the 2013 ranking, the company and the difference versus 2012’s Fortune 500.
#22 Costco (+2)
#35 Microsoft (+2)
