Dr. John Binkley has been known for many things; a dedicated family man, a philanthropist, a published author, and of course, a messenger of the word of God through his work with numerous faith-based organizations. However, Dr. Binkley has for many years been respected for his exceptional business acumen, with his greatest accomplishments in this field coming as Founder of Generational Equity, one of the highest ranked Middle-Market M&A firms in North America. Under his direction and the foundation he built, his organization continues to make waves in this industry.
Dr. Binkley’s passion and extensive business experience has been crucial in the early formation and continued growth of Generational Equity. At the helm for over 20 years, the firm has grown from its humble beginnings to now hold a network of over 200 skilled M&A professionals. A respected businessman in several different industries prior to founding Generational Equity, his wide experience has helped entrepreneurs across all sectors achieve their business goals. From supporting the growth of their company through strategic partnerships and insightful value-enhancement techniques, to guiding them through the process of exiting their business for the right return on investment, Dr. John Binkley has played a key role in fulfilling their professional and personal ambitions.
One of the key factors behind Generational Equity’s robust reputation in Middle-Market M&A is the comprehensive process that Dr. Binkley set out and has evolved over time. Educating business owners about hidden value in their business and the importance of building their organization with a future buyer in mind is a major component of this. This is influenced by Dr. Binkley’s own education, where he earned his Bachelor’s in Business Administration from Southern Methodist University’s Cox School of Business. This deep knowledge of the business sphere not only benefits Generational Equity’s clients – he has also conducted many seminars on leadership and business across the globe, guiding the next generation of entrepreneurs with the skills necessary to achieve their visions.
Dr. Binkley’s influence on Generational Equity’s continued development is still felt today in his role as Chairman. He remains at the heart of the firm’s all-inclusive approach to directing business owners on their journey through the M&A process, and has also played a big part in securing its long-term future. His son, Ryan Binkley, is building upon Dr. Binkley’s foundations as the company’s President and CEO, ensuring the aspirations of company owners will continue to be realized in years to come. Today, Generational Equity has achieved over 40 awards recognizing their success and continued growth, including the prestigious Investment Banking Firm of the Year from The M&A Advisor.
