About

A Georgia native, Mr. Sheppard began learning about the importance of integrity and an excellent work ethic at the age of ten years old through his newspaper route. He values honesty, loyalty, timeliness, compassion, respect, empathy, and hard work. He applies these quality traits as he works diligently for his clients’ success. Whether stakeholders are looking to sell or grow, he helps them drive up the value of their company to achieve the best possible deal in the M&A market. Lyle’s knowledge from 10 years of consulting in this space, paired with the leverage of the global Benchmark team, gives our clients an unmatched opportunity to exceed their expectations. He has a passion to help others succeed and he takes great joy in seeing them accomplish their goals.

Experience

As a Business Development Director, Lyle helps business owners understand the pitfalls of the M&A market and why it is important to engage global M&A experts. If the timing is right for a business owner to go to market, he spotlights marketable traits of their company and develops strategies to achieve the highest valuation possible for their deal. Having worked directly in several industries such as manufacturing, logistics, finance, and technology, and having consulted in growth for more than a decade, Lyle brings valuable knowledge to our clients. He has consulted with companies in the mid and lower-mid market on creating efficiencies and sustainable growth and has a consistent track record of over 25 percent growth in companies that he has either run or for which he has implemented growth strategies. His personal experience on the buy and sell side of M&A gives him a unique perspective into what our clients will deal with as they navigate this most unique event in their lives.

Passion

Lyle firmly believes that if he could have leveraged a sell-side partner like Benchmark International for the sale, he could have achieved a much more lucrative outcome. This experience gives him an unparalleled understanding of our clients’ situations and motivates him to go the distance for them.
