2020 Building on a Tremendous Foundation

December 2019- Chairman's Message
by Mark Herndon, Chief Knowledge Officer & Chairman

It’s an exciting time at the M&A Leadership Council! On behalf of the entire team, April Dumas, Larry Dell, me, and our founders, Jim Jeffries and Jack Prouty, we can’t wait to build on this tremendous foundation of success and best-in-class professional development.

All of us are deeply grateful to the entire Council team, our outstanding sponsors, presenters and alumni participants. Your individual and collective insights, expertise and hard work have created a truly distinctive platform with vast potential to continue to build professionalism and advancement within the corporate merger and acquisition community.

While there’s much to be done, our commitment is to build on the tremendous M&A Leadership Council track record in these essential ways:

  • Thought Leadership. At its core, we believe the M&A Leadership Council can and should be a focal point for M&A practitioners to inquire, explore, network and adapt from the proven best practice insights and applications of their peer organizations and colleagues.
  • Engagement. You and your organization are part of a tremendous alumni community of M&A practitioners. Our commitment is to facilitate and support more ways to collaborate, engage and get more practitioners involved in this important community.
  • Innovation. Perhaps most exciting of all, we envision new workshops, products, services and learning opportunities for M&A practitioners and their organizations.

But first and foremost, our commitment is to continue to provide the best experts, content, networking and best practices you’ve come to expect at our Art of M&A℠ workshops in 2020! Registration for these events is now open. Please browse the Council’s event page and budget for the first quarter training programs.

Happy Holidays and blessing for a wonderful New Year,

Mark Herndon
