Each year the National Capital Chapter of the Association for Corporate Growth (ACG) elects new members to its Board of Directors and selects a new president. These individuals are chosen to help guide the organization’s business and affairs and set its direction for the coming year.

ACG National Capital’s Board of Directors is an all volunteer board representing the various local industry sectors and all facets of ACG’s membership. During their four- year term, these individuals will work to establish guidelines and policies for the chapter. Directors participate on a team of committed industry leaders to establish the goals, strategies and objectives to enable the Chapter to fulfill its mission of driving middle-market corporate growth. They provide financial oversight and develop action plans and programs to support and grow membership, and increase the overall value of the organization.

The newest Board of Directors includes some of the most distinguished business leaders in the region. This robust group brings a strong voice to capital market growth and M&A strategy further extending the value that the Chapter offers to its members.

Greg Van Beuren was appointed as the new ACG Capital Chapter president, assuming the role from past president Jason Rigoli. Most recently, Greg was a managing director in the Defense & Government Services Group of BB&T Capital Markets | Windsor Group, where he advised on numerous middle-market M&A transactions ranging in value from $10 Million to more than $700 Million and resulting in more than $3.0 Billion in value for his clients.
