YP Spotlight: Byron McCoy
Our December #YPSpotlight, Byron McCoy, is one of the nine partners at Younger Partners. He joined the company six years ago and focuses on third-party agency leasing and some sales transactions. Byron says what he enjoys most about his role is that every day, every transaction and every client is different. Getting a property to full occupancy is especially satisfying, too. He and his wife of 31 years, Deah, have three grown children – Kent, Caleb and Katherine – and welcomed their first grandchild this year, Brooks Byron.
Salesmanship has been in Byron’s blood since he was a boy: he was a paperboy for the Dallas Times Herald from the third grade until 11th grade. He was enterprising and came up with the idea to include payment envelopes with the newspapers asking for the subscription payments to be mailed in or pinned to the mailbox, The Herald took the idea citywide with the Dallas Morning News following suit. Named Paperboy of the Year twice, Byron did TV commercials for the Herald and used the money to finance his education at Baylor University.
