Frontier Utilities (frontierutilities.com)
has been named to the Cougar 100 by University of Houston and ranks
seventh among the most successful companies owned by University of
Houston alumni. The award was presented at an announcement luncheon on
October 27, 2015.
This is University of Houston’s second annual Cougar 100, ranked by
percentage of compound annual growth in sales or revenue. Frontier
Utilities ranked 31 in 2014 and moved to seventh in 2015 based on
significant growth and profitability over the past year.
Frontier Utilities is led by University of Houston alumni Jay Hellums,
who graduated with a Bachelor of Business Administration in finance in
1984 and later earned a Master of Business Administration from Rice
University. Hellums has served as the company’s president since 2012 and
is recognized as a proven business builder with a track record of
executing ambitious growth strategies. Under his direction,
Houston-based Frontier Utilities has experienced compounded annual
growth in revenues of more than 154% per year and is expected to top $70
million this year.
“It’s exciting to be recognized as one of the fastest-growing companies
among University of Houston’s alumni-owned or led businesses,” said
Hellums. “Frontier Utilities is a dynamic organization, and our team of
valued employees is unified in serving customers in deregulated
electricity markets across Texas, New York and Pennsylvania.”
As part of the prestigious Cougar 100, Frontier Utilities is also in
