HTS Texas honored at the 11th annual Aggie 100
Recognizing the Fastest Growing Aggie-Owned or Managed Companies in the World
Texas A&M University recognized HTS Texas 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. HTS Texas was ranked 94 with a compound annual growth rate of 32.42% 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.
HTS Texas, one of the largest independent built-to-order commercial and industrial full service HVAC manufacturer’s representatives in Texas, is now a 3-time recipient of the Aggie 100 (2015, 2014, 2010). Owner, president and proud Aggie-alum Mike Donovan has incorporated market-changing, innovative concepts and personalized customer service, enabling the company to grow from start-up to gross $118 million in 2014. HTS Texas has evolved from simply an equipment distributor into a full-service provider of HVAC solutions including engineering sales, building automation systems, service and maintenance, airside products, energy management solutions and aftermarket parts with 5 storefronts across Texas.
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.”
