Kyle McDonald, ’81
CEO of Argent Financial Group, Inc.

Kyle McDonald’s time as a student in the College of Business provided the solid foundation for his career. That foundation has allowed him, as CEO and founder of Argent Financial Group, to grow the company to $19 billion in client assets, 29 offices in 12 states, and 270 employees—including 45 Louisiana Tech grads today. As a finance major, he recalls taking courses that covered many disciplines within business and learning about topics that he would use later as Argent’s CEO.
