Recognizing the Fastest Growing Aggie-Owned or Operated Companies
(Bryan, TX – November 13th, 2017) – Texas A&M University recognized FrogSlayer of Bryan, TX as a member of the 2017 Aggie 100, which honors the fastest-growing companies in the world, owned or operated by Texas A&M University Former Students. FrogSlayer, recognized as The Top 25 Best Companies to Work for in Texas earlier this year, was ranked 18th with a compound annual growth rate of 60.64% from 2014 through 2016. The Aggie 100, a program created by the McFerrin Center for Entrepreneurship in Texas A&M University’s Mays Business School, honors graduates from across disciplines for their entrepreneurial endeavors and success as business leaders.
“To be named to the Aggie 100 three times in four years is a great testament to our team’s dedication to serve our growing client base,” stated President and CEO of FrogSlayer, Ross Morel. “There’s a lot of great companies and entrepreneurs on the Aggie 100 list every year. To be named among them is always unexpected and humbling,” said Morel.
To be considered for the Aggie 100, companies must operate in a manner consistent with the Aggie Code of Honor and, in keeping with the values and image of Texas A&M University, must meet specific criteria.
“This has been a big year for our company. Our plan is to continue making FrogSlayer and the Bryan/College Station area a key destination for high-paid tech jobs. It’s going to take growth to do that and being named to the Aggie 100 is validation of that growth,” added Morel.
The 100 Aggie-owned or Aggie-led businesses with the highest annual revenue growth were recognized on Friday, October 27, 2017, at an evening program in the Hall of Champions at Texas A&M University’s football stadium, Kyle Field. The honorees were joined by employees, faculty, administrators, current students, and fellow entrepreneurs to celebrate their success.
“The 13th Annual Aggie 100 is a very impressive representation of Aggie excellence. The honorees bring the best to their respective industries and are keeping the Aggie entrepreneurial standards alive and well,” said Richard H. Lester, executive director of the Mays Business School’s McFerrin Center for Entrepreneurship. “As always, we’re very proud of these Aggie entrepreneurs, and we celebrate the success of all Aggie companies that live by the Aggie Code of Honor: Aggies do not lie, cheat or steal or tolerate those who do. We need more of that in today’s business world.”
