“Top Tigers” represents one of Auburn University’s important recognition events that showcases its successful alumni entrepreneurs. Honorees are selected annually based on their total sales levels and adherence to the Auburn Creed in running their businesses. We are excited to recognize 54 Top Tigers this year, who operate businesses across diverse industries and are alumni from several different Colleges and Schools across campus, ” said Franz Lohrke, Lowder Endowed Chair in Entrepreneurship and Professor of Entrepreneurship at Auburn University.
The Harbert College of Business and Warren Averett CPAs and Advisors co-sponsored this program and selected the winners based on compounded annual growth rates over the last three years. They also ranked The Prewitt Group based on revenue growth and the commitment to operate the company consistently by the Auburn Creed.
“We are thrilled to be honored and included by Auburn University and the Harbert College of Business,” said Johnny Prewitt, president of The Prewitt Group. “Auburn’s Creed is something that is instilled in every graduate, and we strive to live by it every day, in both our business and personal lives. We indeed are honored to be chosen as a ‘Top Tiger’.”
John Prewitt, Jr. (Jack) founded The Prewitt Group, formerly J.R. Prewitt and Associates, in 1974, and over the past 48 years, the agency has grown to become one of the most trusted local and national names in risk management. The Prewitt Group’s legacy has proven to be one that offers exceptional service through partnerships with a network of top-rated insurance carriers that are aligned with our mission, vision and values.
The firm is now led by Jack’s two sons: Johnny Prewitt (President) and Andy Prewitt (Vice President). This is the eighth year the College of Business has recognized businesses that have been founded, owned or led by Auburn graduates.
