From the Desk of Ryan Binkley, President & CEO of Generational Group – October 2019

By Generational Group


Hello and welcome to our October 2019 eNewsletter!

The Greek writer Aesop is credited with once saying, “A man is known by the company he keeps”. I think the same can be said for business relationships. That is why we were very excited a few weeks ago when we renewed our national relationship with Vistage Worldwide. Many of you are most likely Vistage members.

For those of you that are not, Vistage is the world’s largest CEO coaching and peer advisory for small and midsize businesses. For more than 60 years, they have been helping CEOs, business owners and key executives solve their greatest challenges through confidential peer groups and one-to-one executive coaching sessions. Today, more than 23,000 members in 20 countries rely on Vistage to help make better decisions for their companies, families and communities.

As part of our relationship with them, we will be presenting at a number of Vistage Executive Summits over the next year as well as co-hosting several live webinars for their Deal Network. Our organizations have similar missions and core principles and we are thrilled to continue our good work together. You can learn more about our relationship with Vistage here:

Remember that Generational Equity is always here to assist with your journey as a business owner and help you create a successful exit strategy when the time comes. Over the past decade we are both privileged and proud to have helped more lower middle market companies (those with valuations up to $50 million) successfully exit their businesses than any other M&A advisory firm in North America. Since our inception, we have transferred nearly $5 billion in wealth to our clients and their families.

Our dealmakers are skilled and experienced in negotiating within our vast buyer network and we are ready to meet with you to discuss your personal goals and objectives.

Please reach out to us if you are interested in attending another exit planning conference or if you prefer a face-to-face private meeting with one of our M&A professionals to discuss your options. We believe that it is vital for business owners to develop exit strategies that will protect and defend the significant equity they have built into their businesses. We are passionate about assisting our clients in this process and helping them make confident, informed decisions.

Please call us at 972-232-1121 or send an email to if you would like information about a conference in your area or if you would like to meet with us one-on-one. If you would like to find a conference near you, use this link.
