Argent Financial Group has been recognized as one of Louisiana State University’s 100 Fastest Growing Tiger Businesses for the sixth year in a row. The LSU 100 is an annual program that identifies the 100 fastest growing LSU graduate-owned or graduate-led businesses in the world and honors them for their impact on local, regional and national economies.

“To receive this honor six years in a row is confirmation that Argent continues to reach new heights for our clients,” said Kyle McDonald, CEO of Argent Financial Group. “Our team is proud to be recognized along with so many other deserving companies. I’m also grateful to the LSU community for providing me with an education and a network that will last a lifetime. ”

The LSU 100, which was founded in 2011, offers encouragement, education, networking and assistance to entrepreneurial students, faculty and businesses across the country. Companies are confidentially ranked by Postlewaite & Netterville according to the companies’ compounded annual growth rate. The LSU 100’s goal is to inspire entrepreneurship by providing a forum to pass on lessons to the next generation of LSU entrepreneurs.

Honorees will be celebrated and rankings revealed on Friday, Nov. 13, at the Historic Houmas House & Gardens in Darrow, Louisiana. This year’s event will be a tailgate under the stars, to allow for adherence to CDC guidelines. For more information, visit www.lsu100.com.
