Largest Employers in Fort Bend County

Fort Bend CountyThis week the Houston Business Journal published their findings on the largest employers in Fort Bend County. It has been exciting for me, having lived in Fort Bend County for nearly 20 years, to see the growth in our community. While much of the country has experienced serious economic challenges, Fort Bend County has been somewhat shielded from the worst. That's not to say that some of our local companies have not been effected, because they have. But we have been able to weather the national (and global) economic downturns better than most. I thought this list was very interesting in that it gives us a bigger picture of the companies and industries based here at home. Some of the executives, marketing professionals, and sales professionals that I serve work for these companies. Also, many of our small businesses support these larger companies. Listed below are the largest employers and the number of full-time employees in 2012. (Excluded from this list are government jobs.)
