Texas Companies Top Fortune 500 List

by | Apr 28, 2008 | Observations

The annual Fortune 500 list is out. Texas pulled ahead of New York this year for the state with the most corporate headquarters with 58. 

Houston’s number of companies grew from 22 to 25 (26 including the 10 county area) this year. It’s good to see that businesses recognize that Houston’s business community is worth joining. We’re second only to New York City. Dallas follows us in the #3 spot jumping up from #5 last year. 

Not surprisingly, the majority of headquarters located in Houston are related to the energy and oil and gas industries. That said Continental and Waste Management are right up there.

What did you think of this year’s list? Any surprises?
