“The Annual M&A Advisor Emerging Leaders Awards was born as the 40 Under 40 Awards in the United States in 2010 to recognize and celebrate the achievements of young M&A, Financing and Turnaround professionals who had reached a significant level of success and made a notable contribution to their industry and community,” said David Fergusson, President and Co-CEO of The M&A Advisor. “With the expansion of the Emerging Leaders program to the United Kingdom, and Europe earlier this year, the 2016 U.S. award winners join a truly global network of young leaders.”
