Generational Equity, a leading mergers and acquisitions advisor for privately-held, middle-market businesses announced today that it was recognized as “Valuation Firm of the Year” by the M&A Advisor at the 13th Annual M&A Awards Gala at the New York Athletic Club on Monday, November 17th.  

Although Generational Equity has won multiple M&A Advisor awards over the years (most notably M&A Consulting Firm of the Year in 2011 and 2013) it was the first time the firm has been recognized as Valuation Firm of the Year by this prestigious organization.

Dwight Jacobs, Executive Vice President of Mergers and Acquisitions for Generational Equity stated, “The award for Valuation Firm of the Year is the culmination of all the hard work and effort by our entire team. We are so pleased to have achieved this level of excellence in our industry.”

“The award winners represent the best of the M&A industry in 2014 and earned these honors by standing out in a group of very impressive finalists,” said David Fergusson, Co-CEO and President of The M&A Advisor. 

“From lower middle market to multi-billion dollar deals, we are recognizing the leading transactions, firms and individuals that represent the highest levels of performance.”

The 13th Annual M&A Advisor Awards Gala honored the leading deal teams, firms and professionals whose activities set the standard for M&A transactions. This year, over 130 nominees, representing over 600 companies, became finalists for the awards.

An independent judging committee of 11 top M&A industry experts determined the ultimate recipients of the awards which were revealed “Academy-Award style” at the gala.

“To be recognized by our peers like this is a real honor,” stated Ryan Binkley, President of Generational Equity. 

“It is a testament to our hard work as an organization and the professionalism and dedication of our entire group of M&A professionals. Congratulations to our team at Generational Equity for making this award a reality.”
