MGA Named Best of the Best Small Business Elite Award Winner

The Best of the Best Small Business Elite Award is given to the company who was in the small business category (50 employees and under) who had the highest score across all categories.

These companies, including MGA as the Houston recipient this year, are in the top 3% of all the winners.

It's all about building a professional home here at MGA for our team members, about creating that type of culture. We want everyone here to feel valued and engaged in the entire business. At MGA, we do things differently, and we think it shows.

"If you stop to think about it, we spend more of our waking hours with our work family than our home family. You have to love both. It's about creating that culture at MGA. I'm excited to come to MGA each morning to work and share with our team and also excited to go home with my real family each night. It's great to see people grow and develop here — marry, start families, have kids graduate, etc. It's an honor to know that MGA is a home for 50+ individuals and their great families." — Michael Miller, Director of Operations
