Tom Ewers announced as Winner of the 5th Annual 40 Under 40 Recognition Awards

The M&A Advisor announced the winners of the 40 Under 40 Recognition Awards on Wednesday, April 30th. Tom Ewers, senior director of West Monroe Partners’ Minneapolis office and national lead for the firm's Merger & Acquisition practice, was named a winner in the Service Provider category. 
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. Tom Ewers has been chosen for his accomplishments and expertise from a pool of international nominees by an independent judging panel of distinguished business leaders. 

“Tom is an accomplished entrepreneur that continuously embodies exceptional client service,” said Kevin McCarty, West Monroe’s President. “Tom has played a key role in West Monroe’s growth as a strategic advisor for some of our most prominent private equity and strategic buyer clients, helping them realize transformational change and growth through M&A transactions.”

Prior to opening West Monroe’s Minneapolis office in 2013, Tom worked in the Seattle office from 2006 to 2012, where he had responsibility for building West Monroe’s Private Equity practice on the West Coast.

Over the course of his 15-year career, Tom has spent a considerable part of his career advising leading private equity firms and strategic buyers. His expertise spans the transaction lifecycle, from M&A strategy, transaction due diligence, planning and execution for acquisition integrations and corporate divestitures, as well as operational improvement. As the firm’s Minneapolis office leader, Tom is responsible for growing West Monroe’s practice throughout Minnesota and the upper Midwest, as well as several national client relationships.

“In 2010 we initiated the 40 UNDER 40 Awards to recognize the emerging leaders of the M&A, Financing and Turnaround industries” said David Fergusson, President of The M&A Advisor. “It is our belief that this group of accomplished women and men will have a significant effect on the advancement of our industry. And it is our great pleasure to recognize them and provide a forum for them to meet and engage with one another”. 

On Tuesday, June 24th, The M&A Advisor will host a black tie Awards Gala at the Roosevelt Hotel in Manhattan, in conjunction with the 2014 Emerging Leaders’ Summit – an exclusive event pairing 40 Under 40 winners together with their mentors and other stalwarts, to introduce the 40 Under 40 Award Winners to the business community and celebrate their achievements.
