As the Founder and Chairman of Generational Equity, Dr. John Binkley has been fortunate enough to experience a number of great successes. Under his guidance, it has become one of the leading M&A advisory firms for privately held middle-market businesses, winning multiple awards from The M&A Advisor, Thomson Reuters, Inc. 500 and more. This trend has shown no signs of slowing in 2017, with Generational Equity recently ranked second by Thomson Reuters for deals closed in the U.S. valued up to $50 million for the first half of the year.
So, it is wonderful to celebrate another landmark achievement, as Generational Equity closed its 600th transaction at the end of June, representing nearly $4 billion in wealth released for clients. This level of deals closed is unmatched among M&A consultancy firms that specialize in the lower middle-market, a fact that Dr. Binkley is especially proud of.
Dwight Jacobs, one of Generational Equity’s most senior members as Executive Vice President, Mergers and Acquisitions, commented on this great accomplishment:
“Closing our 600th transaction is a significant achievement in our industry. But what is really most gratifying for us is that each of these transactions represents a business owner and the financial legacy for their families. We are honored that so many entrepreneurs have entrusted us with their businesses.”
When Dr. John Binkley built the foundations of Generational Equity, it was with one goal in mind: helping business owners throughout North America fulfill their goals and secure their family’s financial legacy. It is achievements such as this that demonstrate how many company owners the firm has supported through the M&A process, allowing them to exit their business for the optimal value.
This unwavering aim was highlighted by Ryan Binkley, Dr. Binkley’s son and the President and CEO of the firm:
“Our goal is to serve our clients by helping them both define and discover the life they want for themselves and their loved ones. It is a real honor and privilege to work with entrepreneurs to reach their dreams.”
With this latest feat, there is no doubting that Generational Equity has cemented its position of leadership among M&A advisory firms. The exemplary service and guidance the firm offers clients in building a buyer ready business and making deals that benefit both buyers and sellers means it will continue to help entrepreneurs across North America fulfill their ambitions.
