Mergers & Acquisitions recently announced the winners of their M&A Mid-Market Awards. These awards honor the leading dealmakers at companies with an enterprise value of less than $1 billion.

This year’s award for Investment Bank of the Year was presented to Harris Williams & Co., a middle-market boutique investment bank headquartered in Richmond, Va. ACG National Capital member, Christopher Rogers, is a Director in the Aerospace, Defense & Government Services Group at the company.

According to Mergers & Acquisitions:

With M&A down some 10 percent in value and five percent in volume in 2012 from the previous year, Harris Williams & Co.’s 60 percent growth in deal value and 50 percent in volume marks quite an impressive feat. The middle-market boutique investment bank completed more than 75 transactions, valued at around $13.7 billion. To put the bank’s growth in perspective, consider that competitor William Blair & Co. achieved similar numbers in 2012, but its growth from the previous year, while certainly noteworthy at 31 percent in value and 15 percent in volume, was not as dramatic.

We’d like to take the opportunity to congratulate Mr. Rogers, and everyone else at Harris Williams & Co., on achieving this great honor.
