The M&A Advisor, renowned globally for its recognition of leading M&A, financing and turnaround professionals, created this event to promote mentorship and professional development amongst the emerging business leaders. Brad Haller has been chosen for his accomplishments and expertise from a pool of nominees by an independent judging panel of distinguished business leaders. 

“Brad can be best described as one of our most committed and professional individuals at our firm. Brad does an excellent job leading by example so that those that follow in his footsteps have a strong foundation to lead strong projects,” said John Stiffler, senior director and the leader of West Monroe's Mergers and Acquisitions practice in Chicago. “Brad is the fourth team member in four consecutive years to gain this honor from our M&A team – which comes as no surprise based on Brad’s strong work ethic and client satisfaction scores.”

Brad manages strategic projects advising C-level executives and private equity professionals on a variety of topics such as due diligence, post-merger integration, divestiture analysis, cost takeout opportunities, program management, process improvement, technology modernization, organizational transformation, target operating models, and governance model design. Brad has advised buyers on more than 100 transactions focusing on key risks, scalability, and synergy identification across strategy, people, process, and technology.

“The Annual M&A Advisor Emerging Leaders Awards was born as the 40 Under 40 Awards in the United States in 2010 to recognize and celebrate the achievements of young M&A, Financing and Turnaround professionals who had reached a significant level of success and made a notable contribution to their industry and community. With the expansion of the Emerging Leaders program to the United Kingdom, and Europe earlier this year, the 2016 US award winners join a truly global network of young leaders,” said David Fergusson, President and Co-CEO of The M&A Advisor. 

On Friday, June 10th, The M&A Advisor will host a black tie Awards Gala at the New York Athletic Club in Manhattan to introduce the Emerging Leaders Award Winners to the business community and celebrate their achievements.
