An influential history teacher and a retired Colonel for a dad, paved the way for Kit to join the Army. Kit was an Army  intelligence officer. After spending years reading battlefield maps he translated that skill to reading marketing maps and carved out a niche for himself in the private equity arena.  He is the founder of Acclaro Growth Partners, a growth strategy consulting firm for the Middle Market M&A Ecosystem, and of, a community for PE-backed executives. Lyle is a seasoned strategist, researcher, and analyst who has a natural talent for identifying growth opportunities and executing successful strategies.

Because no one ever built a simple & secure way to validate our veteran status at checkout.

Until now.

Want to be recognized at select merchants simply by swiping your existing Visa card?

Join our waitlist and be one of the first veterans to have this power in your wallet.
