Prior to joining Benchmark International, Mr. O’Neill held a number of positions in sales and sales management for large financial institutions. Through these positions, he was able to learn a great deal about the markets and he eventually obtained his FINRA Series 7 and 66 licenses that allowed him to work in client-facing roles. Tyrus truly enjoyed the dynamic aspect of these roles, but wanted to further develop different skillsets and pursue new challenges. As he completed his MBA through the University of Florida, he transitioned to a new company and position with a heavy focus on quantitative analysis of security products and financial instruments. In this role, his primary delivery was internal audit reports for SEC financial reporting requirements. The combination of experience in his prior roles has given him a basis in which to develop great success with Benchmark International.
The choice to join Benchmark International was easy for Tyrus because of how the leadership inspires the organization to perform above standard levels. There is a great depth of knowledge that allows the team to operate successfully on a global scale. His role allows him to leverage his depth of quantitative analysis while still being able to enjoy the client-facing aspects of the industry. Relationships and helping people achieve what is often a lifelong journey is a truly rewarding experience for him. Mr. O’Neill feels successful at work when his clients feel successful.

At Benchmark International, Tyrus spends a great deal of time with his clients. This often leads to close relationships on both professional and personal levels. The sale of a business typically happens once and only once for our clients and that’s why Benchmark International's expertise is so crucial. Tyrus is confident that our past clients have found comfort knowing that we are seasoned professionals who truly care about their business. Aside from the business aspects of the deal, we ensure that our clients are comfortable with the new owners and the planned transition, their legacy is secured, and employees that have been loyal to the business and its owners over the years are protected. A successful transaction isn’t simply a closed deal but a deal that leaves both sides happy and excited about the future.
