Brandon Riggs

It was a project that Brandon worked on as a graduate student at the University of Tulsa that led him to start Terra Pad, a company that designs, plans, constructs, sells and installs commercial play environments, aquatics, pavilions, site furnishings and architectural shade systems throughout the U.S. The creation of the business is Brandon’s claim to fame.

“I have created a real, working business that contributes to the community, employs great people and adds value for our customers, all from a graduate-level economics exercise class,” he says.
