The M&A Advisor announced today that Matt Sondag was among the winners of the 40 Under 40 M&A Advisor Recognition Awards. Sondag was named a winner for the Service Provider category. Sondag leads a team that works with private equity and strategic buyers involved in or preparing for investments and acquisitions. His team assists buyers with pre-deal IT and operational due diligence, as well as post-close projects (integration and carve-out activities).
Sondag, a Senior Director in West Monroe Partners’ Chicago office, is responsible for expanding and deepening the firm’s unique offerings to the private equity market, including its merger and acquisition services. He was chosen for his accomplishments and expertise from a pool of international nominees by an independent judging panel of distinguished business leaders.
“Matt has been instrumental in growing our specialty in IT and operational consulting capabilities related to mergers and acquisitions,” said Kevin McCarty, West Monroe’s President and one of its founders. “Matt’s team has become recognized and valued as a true “go-to” advisor in the M&A marketplace for private equity and strategic buyers.”
The M&A Advisor, celebrated globally for its recognition of leading M&A, financing and turnaround professionals, created this event to promote mentorship and professional development amongst the emerging business leaders.
“In 2010, we initiated the 40 Under 40 Awards to recognize the emerging leaders of the M&A, Financing and Turnaround industries” said David Fergusson, President of The M&A Advisor. “It is our belief that this group of accomplished women and men will have a significant effect on the advancement of our industry. And it is our great pleasure to recognize them and provide a forum for them to meet and engage with one another”.
