About the Honoree
Kevin Mathews founded GenOx Transportation, Inc. in LaPorte, Texas in 2001. Building on the lifetime experience of his father in the industrial gas industry, and Kevin’s own experience with his father’s firm, Cryogenics Transportation, Kevin set out to design a business model for GenOx that would enable it to become a market leader in the transportation of liquid nitrogen gas and industrial gas.  Operating in one of the smallest niches within the tank truck industry, his company is investing more than $5 million a year on new equipment in anticipation of increased customer demand in 2015. This past year, Genox generated $62 million in revenue, up from $1.2 million in revenue when the company launched in 2001.

Kevin earned a B.S. degree in Economics in 1991 from Millikin and has returned to campus at different times to work with students and engage faculty in thinking and planning for entrepreneurship education. Kevin Mathews’ career brings honor to his alma mater and we are very pleased to recognize his achievements with this award.
