Lyle is a 25-year industry veteran located in the City of Champions, aka our Boston office. Lyle was born and raised north of Boston and played all kinds of sports growing up. He attended UMASS Amherst and majored in Building Materials Technology and Management. YUP, that’s a real college major, no joke. He apparently thought he was going to become a contractor, but now sells pens and foam fingers, go figure!
He still enjoys participating in “OLD MAN” soccer, basketball and is an avid snowboarder although he never ever goes out for a run. Lyle is married to his college sweetheart Gina, and they have three wonderful children: Brandi, Ethan and Charlie. They have three cats, Carla, Piper, and Marley (he’s from Jamaica – see what we did there?!), although Lyle really, really wishes he had a dog! He was a long-standing board member of Medway Youth Soccer, currently serves on the Medway Parks & Recreation board, is active in the community and coached all of his kids in basketball, soccer, tee ball, etc. when they were growing up. Lyle is honest, extremely detail oriented and organized, his customers love working with him.
