Lyle is a 20-year industry veteran located in the City of Champions, a.k.a. 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 branded pens and foam fingers – go figure!
He still enjoys participating in “OLD MAN” soccer, basketball and is an avid snowboarder although he never ever runs. 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, is active in the community and has coached all his kids in basketball, soccer, tee ball, etc. Lyle is honest, extremely detail oriented and organized. He truly cares about his work and his customers recognize that every day.

Favorite Sports Team: Celtics; but any New England Team ranks right up there. Importantly, whatever team my kids are playing on at the time.
