In 1976, at the age of 12, Todd began his career working in his family business. The company, Sound of Music, Ltd, provided satellite communication services to businesses across the country. Todd worked his way to VP of Sales and Marketing and played a key role in generating over $1.1 million in EBITDA for the company. The company customer base was sold to Muzak Corporation twenty two years later for over 8X enterprise value of EBITDA. Todd was directly involved in Muzak’s acquisition of this successful family business. Through that experience, Todd gained an interest in the brokerage industry and it was then that EBIT Associates, Ltd. was formed. Todd is an entertaining and sought after public speaker, giving presentations and seminars on the benefits of having broker representation when it comes time to buy or sell a business.
