ButcherJoseph & Co. is proud to announce that Carter Smith, Associate, was selected as a winner of The M&A Advisor Emerging Leaders Awards. Carter was chosen for his accomplishments and expertise in the industry from a pool of international nominees by an independent judging panel of distinguished business leaders.
The M&A Advisor, renowned 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.
“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. With the expansion of the Emerging Leaders program to the United Kingdom, and Europe in 2016, the 2018 US award winners join a truly global network of outstanding young professionals,” said David Fergusson, President and Co-CEO of The M&A Advisor.
On Tuesday, September 18th, The M&A Advisor will host a black tie Awards Gala at the New York Athletic Club in Manhattan to introduce the Emerging Leaders Award Winners to the business community and celebrate their achievements. The Awards Gala is a feature of the 2018 Emerging Leaders Summit – an exclusive event pairing current and past Emerging Awards winners together with their peers and industry stalwarts.
ButcherJoseph personnel have received this prestigious recognition since 2014, marking 2018 as the firm’s fifth consecutive year of growing and developing the M&A industry’s most talented professionals. Past award winners include Robert Reavis, Rose Newport, David Lake and Alberto del Pilar.
