G&A Partners Recognized as One of Houston's Best Family-Owned Businesses by Houston Business Journal
G&A Partners was one of 68 family-owned businesses recognized and awarded at the inaugural Family-Owned Business awards by Houston Business Journal in June 2023.
To be considered for the award, companies were required to demonstrate both financial success and commitment to the Houston community. They were also required to be at least 51% owned by family, have multiple generations involved in the operations of the company, and be located in one of Houston area’s 10 counties.
G&A Partners was founded by Antonio “Tony” Grijalva and John W. Allen (The “G” and “A” in our company name), who met while working at Grant Thornton, a large accounting firm in Houston in the 1980s.
“We started our HR outsourcing company in 1995 and made the decision in 2002 to transform the business from a lifestyle one to one that would be a major player in our industry,” says John Allen, CEO and founder of G&A Partners. “We have since expanded geographically and in size. We also acquired several other firms.”
“We never knew 25+ years ago that our business would turn into what it is today,” says Tony Grijalva, Chairman Emeritus and founder of G&A Partners. “Our employees are an extension of our family. In fact, we refer to them as the G&A family. It’s an honor to not only receive this recognition but be able to share it with them.”
