This is the second year in a row West Monroe has been a finalist in this category.
“Since the inception of the M&A Advisor Awards in 2002, we have been recognizing the leading dealmakers, firms and transactions. And each year we celebrate the creativity, perseverance and ingenuity of our industry’s professionals” says David Fergusson, President of The M&A Advisor. “While our industry has undergone significant transformation since our first awards were presented 12 years ago, we are convinced, more than ever before, that M&A is a driving force of the economy. It is truly an honor for our firm to be able to recognize the contribution that the 2014 award finalists have made.”
