Gordon Logan, Founder and CEO of Sport Clips Haircuts, was recently named “Best CEO” by the Austin Business Journal, in the large company category. Each year, the award honors CEOs in Central Texas from across multiple industry sectors, from retail to technology and the nonprofit sector.
“Texas has been home to Sport Clips for almost 30 years, so it’s an honor to be selected by the Austin Business Journal for this award,” said Gordon Logan, Founder and CEO of Sport Clips Haircuts. “It has been the ultimate reward to watch Sport Clips grow as the leading hair care provider for men and boys throughout Texas and across the U.S.”
Winning CEOs were selected by a team of judges, including some previous “Best CEOs,” to determine the class of 2015. Judges looked at various areas including revenue growth to company culture in order to determine the final CEO selections. Honorees celebrated the occasion at the downtown JW Marriott in Austin, Texas.
