Last night during a “Virtual Gala,” ACG National Capital, the region’s preeminent association for corporate professionals with a focus on M&A within the middle market, presented Corporate Growth Awards to the region’s biggest deals, top executives and fastest growing companies.
Through their award program, ACG National Capital celebrates the dealmakers that make the national capital region and its business community one of the fastest growing, successful and active in the nation. The annual Corporate Growth Awards are given to business leaders, deal teams and companies that were individually selected for their accomplishments in crafting and executing on successful growth strategies and deals.
The 2020 Corporate Growth Awards recognize business achievements and deals during the 2019 calendar year – a year in which Washington, D.C. was once again ranked the top state economy by Business Insider.
“The national capital region has been home to one of the fastest-growing and most prosperous business communities in America for many years running,” said Don Irwin the 2020 Corporate Growth Awards Committee Chair and a Managing Director and Banker Team Leader at J.P. Morgan Private Bank. “2019 was an incredible year for corporate growth and deal flow in our region, with a number of high-profile deals ranging from strategic acquisitions to high profile initial public offerings.
