Exit Equity Welcomes John Byrum to the M&A Team

Strong talent continues to be added to the best business brokerage firm in the Seattle-area

We are pleased to announce the addition of John Byrum to the Exit Equity team.  John brings over two decades of experience in industrial, manufacturing, distribution, B2B, and e-commerce businesses, with substantial leadership experience in family run, high growth businesses.

His most recent professional accomplishments, prior to joining Exit Equity, include the sale of Onlinemetals.com to Thyssen Krupp and BPS Supply Group to private equity firm Trive Capital. The sale of these two businesses did not happen overnight; it took years of strategic planning, tactics balancing the trade-off of growth and profit margins, and the leadership to build both a business model and management team for sustainable, long-term growth.

“You can learn mergers and acquisitions in a book, but experience is really where rubber meets the road. Exit planning is critical to having an optimal outcome when it comes to selling family-run businesses” said Byrum. John’s practical experience, as a Founder, CEO, and shareholder at family owned businesses, will help our clients navigate the complexities of preparing, planning, selling, and transitioning ownership to a diverse group of buyers.
