Beth Coyle, CEO, Coyle SDA

At the age of 6, when most little girls want to spend their days jumping rope, Beth Coyle was happily learning the ropes of her family's cattle auction business in Bryan. Little did she know at the time that she was developing all of the necessary skills to become a highly successful and well-respected businesswoman in her own right. Coyle and her husband, Mike, are the founders of Coyle Engineering Inc., a company they began in 1995 and recently sold to Spalding DeDecker Associates Inc. In addition to staying on with the company and continuing to serve as CEO, Coyle and her husband also own and operate a property management company, and she is the sole proprietor of her own photography business. It's a very full plate for this former head coach and yearbook advisor at San Antonio Christian School, who would go on to be profiled in Forbes Magazine. But Coyle, who cut her teeth in business, makes it all look easy.
"I learned a lot of business principles while working in my family's business from the age of 6 until I was 17," says Coyle, who holds a BA in communications from Texas A&M University. One of the things she learned was how to be taken seriously as a woman in a male-dominated industry. Her mother set the tone, having what Coyle describes as the attitude of a "kindly nurse dealing with a mental patient. Coyle, who admits that it was difficult for her in the beginning, tried to take that same approach. She recalls how, nearly 20 years ago, she received her fair share of "honey," "sweetie" and "darlin'" from the men in the field. "You can't get offended or riled up," she says. "You just have to get cheerfully firm with them. It only has to happen one time, and they realize that they can't take advantage of you because you are a woman. Another valuable lesson that Coyle learned at the knees of her parents was how to live and work together. She watched her mother and father create harmony by taking on separate roles within the business. That is something that Coyle and her husband have emulated. "There has to be a division of labor, and there has to be respect," she states. That meant that she left the engineering and technical roles to her husband, while she took care of the financial, business and marketing aspects.
"It's really all just started because the engineering company needed more space," laughs Coyle, adding that they could not have grown into this second venture without the help of a very strong support team consisting of a CPA, a business adviser and a corporate attorney, to name a few. "Anyone even thinking about starting their own business must have a good team in place. You really can't do it alone," she comments. In between juggling the responsibilities associated with owning and operating two companies, Coyle found the time to devote to what she calls her true passion: photography. Beth Coyle Photography began in 1997 with Coyle shooting family portraits. But like the other businesses, it has evolved over the years and now consists of fine art photos as well as corporate and architectural commissions. Coyle is a member of the Boerne Professional Artists, and her work is featured in the Daily Grind Coffee Shop on Main Street. "My favorite is the fine art photography," says Coyle, whose office features some of her work from her travels in Italy. "I like to capture slices of life from all over the world and bring it back to show people how others live."
Both the property management company and the photography business are what Coyle calls "backups. She and her husband have only three more years left in the terms of the contract with SDA before they are free to "retire. Of course, retirement to this driven businesswoman doesn't mean the same thing as it does to most people. In addition to traveling, attending Spurs and Aggies games, tending to the family's home with its 31-acres of wildlife management and serving on numerous boards and committees, Coyle will focus her attention on the other two businesses once retired.
"Another important lesson I learned from my parents is that every business has an end," she says.

Success of the Small Business | San Antonio Woman Magazine [cached]

Beth Coyle, chief executive officer of Coyle Engineering Inc., sees partnering as a strategic move to explore new opportunities, grow her business and build upon her 18-member team.

"Big engineering firms have cut or are cutting their staff 50 percent to 75 percent," Coyle says.
"It is important to surround yourself with people who know business, listen to them, ask and answer questions and stay ahead of the trends," Coyle says.
"The companies that weather a storm like this are the ones who look for a silver lining," Coyle says.
