CEO of fast-growing local company got his start mowing yards

Chris Myers got his start as an entrepreneur when he was a kid mowing yards.

Today, he’s the CEO of Professional Alternatives of Houston LLC, a staffing agency that specializes in the placement of mortgage, credit, executive, IT and clerical professionals on a direct-hire and temporary basis.

Myers founded Professional Alternatives — which employs 17 — in 1999, and today it ranks on Houston Business Journal’s 2013 Fast 100 list, which is based on revenue growth from 2010 to 2012.

It’s still a secret where Professional Alternatives of Houston and the other 99 private companies rank on the Houston Fast 100 list this year, but the final results will be revealed at our Sept. 6 event.

And we’ll introduce you to the companies day by day up until the event. Continue to follow our various Fast 100 blogs every day at houstonbusinessjournal.com.
