Austin, Texas – June 23, 2015 – Today, CEO Chris Taylor was named the EO Rockstar Entrepreneur of the Year by the Austin chapter of The Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO) and the Central Texas Chapter of the Association for Corporate Growth. Taylor was recognized and presented with the award at the organization’s annual Growth Awards luncheon, hosted at The Four Seasons Hotel in Austin.
Each year, EO recognizes one of its chapter members for their business success and contributions to the local entrepreneurial community. Taylor was selected from more than 130 current members, and honored for his work helping significantly grow the organization’s membership over the last year. An added testament to his contributions, Taylor was elected president-in-waiting, and will serve as EO Austin chapter president for the 2016-2017 term.
“I’m honored to be recognized by an organization that has proven to be such an invaluable resource for me as a business owner,” said Taylor. “The mentorship, accountability and camaraderie that I’ve received through EO has played an integral role in the success of Square Root, and I look forward to continuing to pay that forward to other entrepreneurs in the Austin community.”
The award is the latest in a series of accolades won by Taylor and the team at Square Root®, including recognition as one of Fortune Magazine’s Best Small & Medium Workplaces, Best Companies to work for in Texas, and Austin Business Journal’s Best Places to Work in Central Texas.
