Today, ACG National Capital announced that local entrepreneurs and widely respected business leaders, Michael Chasen and David Falk, are confirmed to speak at the 2015 Mid-Atlantic Growth Conference.
David Falk is the Founder and CEO of Falk Associates Management Enterprises (FAME) and has represented more first round NBA draft selections, lottery picks, All Stars and Rookies of the Year than anyone in history. He was named the second most powerful person in the NBA, behind then-Commissioner, David Stern and is also credited with changing the entire salary structure of the NBA through the deals he arranged for his clients – which included such famous names as Michael Jordan.
Michael Chasen is the Co-Founder and former CEO of education technology powerhouse, Blackboard. Michael led the company as CEO for 15 years prior to selling the company to Providence Equity Partners for $1.7 billion in 2011. He is currently the CEO and Co-Founder of SocialRadar, a company in the mobile location services space.
The Mid-Atlantic Growth Conference remains the region’s must-attend business event, where top corporate growth and dealmaking executives can come together for networking, discussion and the sharing of business best practices.
In addition to the announced keynote speakers, the Mid-Atlantic Growth Conference will also feature a technology showcase to spotlight local firms with compelling, innovative technology. The conference will also kick-off, once again, with the much anticipated DealSource program, which offers business leaders constructive meetings with investment banks and private equity firms.
“We’re excited to announce the addition of such high profile speakers as David Falk and Michael Chasen to the agenda for this year’s Mid-Atlantic Growth Conference,” said Marc Marlin, a Board Director at ACG National Capital and a Director at investment bank, KippsDeSanto & Co. “With such impactful speakers, the annual DealSource event and the introduction of our new technology showcase, which highlights local firms developing unique and impactful products, the 2015 Mid-Atlantic Growth Conference will be an event that local business executives simply can’t afford to miss.”
The Mid-Atlantic Growth Conference will be held on March 10 – 11, 2015 at the Hilton McLean Tysons Corner, VA. Registration for attendees is $425.00 at www.ACGCapital.org.
