“With the expansion of the Emerging Leaders program to the United Kingdom, and Europe in 2016, the 2017 U.S. award winners join a truly global network of outstanding young professionals,” said David Fergusson, President and Co-CEO of The M&A Advisor. “It is our belief that the Emerging Leader Award winners will continue to have a significant effect on the advancement of our industry,” added Fergusson. A panel of 19 business leaders judged the submissions and made the final selections, each of whom will be introduced at an Awards Gala at the New York Athletic Club in Manhattan on September 19, 2017.
