Generational Group Expands with New Office in Kansas City

By Generational Equity


We are pleased to announce the continued expansion of Generational Group with the opening of a new office in Kansas City, Missouri. Headquartered in Dallas, TX, our firm now has 13 offices in North America.

The new office is led by Andrew Byrd, Senior Vice President, Mergers & Acquisitions in the Central region. Andrew works directly with privately held, middle market businesses to develop and execute successful exit strategies, with a focus on connecting our clients with the right buyers at an optimal price and deal structure.

Prior to joining our team at Generational, Andrew 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.

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

Andrew 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.

 “This new office is part of our strategy to enhance our dealmaking capabilities for companies in the Midwest, including the significant base of infrastructure, logistics and engineering firms in the region,” said Brenen Hofstadter, Chief M&A Officer of Generational.

“This location, along with the other offices we have added the past two years, bolsters our presence and improves our ability to service our clients in the Midwest.”

Generational Group is one of the leading M&A advisory firms in North America, having won multiple industry awards including Investment Banking Firm of the Year in 2016, 2017 and 2018, and Valuation Firm of the Year in 2015 and 2014.

According to the 2019 Refinitiv/Thomson M&A rankings, the firm was #1 in transactions valued up to $25 million, #2 up to $100 million, and #9 up to $500 million. No M&A advisor has closed more deals in the lower middle market than Generational over the past decade.
