Generational Group, a leading mergers and acquisitions advisor for privately held, middle market businesses, is pleased to announce the continued expansion of the firm with the opening of a new office in Kansas City, Missouri. Headquartered in Dallas, TX, the firm now has 13 offices in North America.

The new office is led by Andrew Byrd. Mr. Byrd serves as Senior Vice President, Mergers & Acquisitions in the Central region at Generational, and works directly with privately held, middle market businesses in developing and executing successful exit strategies. Mr. Byrd’s focus is connecting Generational clients with the right buyers at an optimal price and deal structure.

Prior to working with Generational, Mr. Byrd worked independently at a local M&A firm that specialized in the marketing and sale of main-street and lower middle market businesses throughout the Kansas City area. During that time he was instrumental in the preparation, marketing, negotiations, and due diligence process of numerous successful deal closings for a variety of businesses. Mr. Byrd also previously owned his own firm specializing in business formation, as well as advising hundreds of clients on ideal corporate structures. He is licensed as a commercial real estate broker in Missouri and as a commercial agent in Kansas.

Mr. Byrd is passionate about his work and enjoys partnering with clients to achieve their personal goals and objectives. In addition, he is active in his community, volunteering at local Kansas City charities and organizations that help the homeless.

Mr. Byrd earned his JD/MBA with a concentration in Finance from Oklahoma City University, and his BSBA in Finance from University of Central Missouri.
