Austin Business Journal “Face 2 Face” speaker series with Laura Roberts, CEO, Pantheon Enterprises
Staff Writer Austin Business Journal
To become the successful CEO of a forward-thinking chemical company, Laura Roberts had to go from grade school to the school of hard knocks.
During the Austin Business Journal’s monthly Face 2 Face series event Tuesday at Whole Foods Market Inc. s Austin headquarters, Roberts talked about the journey from teaching, which had been her lifelong passion, to leading Phoenix-based Pantheon Enterprises. The company, which has about 50 employees and customers such as Vista Outdoor, is innovating in the world of manufacturing chemicals by creating new formulas that have no negative impact on health or the environment.
Roberts became involved in the business world by helping to manager her father’s small but unprofitable cleaning chemicals business after his death, learning that she’d have to turn the company in a new direction for it to survive. Concern over the negative effects of many industrial chemicals, and concern over the world her children would inherit, caused her to take a green approach to the business.
“When I was younger I was a tree hugger and I had a Kill Corporate America T-shirt,” she said. “But a big shift happened when I realized how much good we could do. The real bulk of the work is figuring out how you get people to change.”
Launching a whole new company wound up being the best strategy for making Roberts’ newfound passion a reality, but it wasn’t easy. She said she was denied by potential investors 300 times before she found one that believed in her vision.
“Only take money from shareholders who are purpose-aligned with you,” she said of turning down term sheets from venture capitalists who wanted almost immediate liquidity. “Not having that can kill the deal, or you later have to sell to get out from under them.”
Holding tight to her vision and belief that industrial companies can operate in an environmentally friendly way led Forbes magazine to call Roberts “The Toxic Avenger” in a company profile. She has embraced that characterization because it helped bring attention to the cause that Pantheon is trying to further.
“You’re in business to maximize shareholder value, but we’re trying to raise the discourse,” she said. “If you’re building profits on the backs of the general population then you’re not really approaching it right. The more transparent you are, the more your shareholders love you.”

I have been doing business with The Plumbing Works for almost ten years. I deal with many subcontractors, and Dean and his crew are among the best I have ever done business with. Honesty, accountability, pride, and always doing the job right seem to be a few of the core values of this company. I know that they will be there when they say they ll be there, at a very reasonable price. I would highly recommend The Plumbing Works, LLC to anyone in need of a plumber, and I plan on continuing business with them for many years to come!

I love The Plumbing Works. They are very friendly, and extremely capable. I ve had them put in a gas line, kitchen faucet, and an outside hose spigot. I will absolutely only call them for any of my pluming needs. Keep up the fantastic work!

Example: There are a few times in life when a meal is so expertly crafted and planned that it is nothing short of genius. Last night, I had one of those meals – the Mahi Mahi.
The dish was excellently prepared. Grilled, juicy, and fresh without a hint of fishiness. A glaze of tangerine sauce brought a hint of tart sweetness. The fish was placed on a mound of sweet plantain rice. The combination of the fish and rice alone was to die for!
However, as only expert chefs can achieve, additional garnishes provided even bolder, beautiful tastes. Pickled onions topping the fish made for an even finer taste experience, while green beans hidden under the fish added freshness and completed each bite
