What our clients say about working with us

"Brexton volunteered to host the first [AGC PRO] meeting in October 2015 after several months of data collecting and benchmarking. In early December 2015 we had a follow up strategic planning session with FBI's John Mayes and the results were phenomenal for my team and myself. The entire FBI staff have been incredibly responsive and exhibits professional excellence in all aspects of their service."

Tim Galvin

CEO, Brexton Consulting

"The Family Business Institute has a very capable staff that can help your family business deal with all kinds of issues. I don't think I would change a thing about how they worked for us. Mike Lyons has been a blessing to our family, and I am thankful for the opportunity to work with him."
