Texas A&M University recognized Patriot Pool & Spa as a member of the 2015 Aggie 100, which honors the fastest-growing companies in the world, owned or operated by Texas A&M University Former Students. Patriot Pool & Spa was ranked 25th with a compound annual growth rate of 70.87% from 2012 through 2014. The Aggie 100, a program created by the Center for New Ventures and Entrepreneurship in Texas A&M University’s Mays Business School, honors graduates from across disciplines for their entrepreneurial endeavors and success as business leaders.
Patriot Pool & Spa has provided swimming pool service, repair, renovation, and education to the greater Austin area since 2006. This is Patriot Pool & Spa’s second time to be named to the Aggie 100, ranking 91st in 2011.
The 100 Aggie-owned or Aggie-led businesses with the highest annual revenue growth were recognized on Friday, October 23, 2015, at a formal luncheon in the Zone Club at Texas A&M University’s football stadium, Kyle Field. More than 700 honorees, families, employees, faculty, administrators, and current student entrepreneurs were in attendance to celebrate their success. “As we enter our second decade honoring business excellence with the 11th Annual Aggie 100, we reflect on all the Aggie businesses that came before and look forward to the future success of Aggie entrepreneurs to come. From agriculture to technology and everything in between, this year’s list signifies that, no matter your background, the Aggie entrepreneurial spirit is alive and thriving,” said Dr. Richard H. Lester, Executive Director of the Mays Business School’s Center for New Ventures and Entrepreneurship. “Our sense of entrepreneurial pride swells each year, as we recognize how successful businesses can become by keeping the Aggie Code of Honor at the heart of everything they do.”
