The Trokie Leadership Team
Montgomery L. “FM” Byers
Montgomery, is the current CEO of SMDigital Partners, an international digital agency with over 275 employees and offices in North America, South America, the Philippines, Spain, and Dubai. “F.M.”, as he is known, leads the strategic direction of the company developing products and services primarily focused on driving revenue for clients. Under his leadership, the firm has built up extensive experience and expertise within the healthcare sector – in both the business-to-consumer (B2C) and business-to-business (B2B) areas. Of late, his efforts have been focused on start-up organizations where he leverages the firm’s abilities attracting, engaging, and converting new customers for enhanced revenue and ultimately enterprise value for his current client roster.
Prior to SMDigital, he was a principal at Access Medical Supply, the nation’s fastest growing medical supply company at the time – and a pioneer in the Direct-to-Consumer (DTC) space. FM’s primary responsibilities involved the technology, sales & marketing and operational functions. After only five years of explosive growth, the company was sold to Owens & Minor (NYSE:OMI). FM has held various senior leadership positions, including at W.R. Grace, and as founder of an online healthcare staffing company for hospitals that was strategically sold to Gannett’s (NYSE:GCI) healthcare division.
He holds a B.S. in Psychology from Lake Forest College, serves on the board of two non-profit athletic organizations and is an advisor to and investor in several real estate, healthcare and fin tech companies. He presently lives with his wife and two children in the Miami, FL area and is still a competitive soccer player, culinary artist and adventure traveler.
