Meet the winners of the M&A Mid-Market Awards: Nike, Fortive, TA, Harris Williams
Excelled. Innovated. Inspired. That’s what the eight winners of Mergers & Acquisitions’ M&A Mid-Market Awards did in 2018. Our awards honor the leading dealmakers and deals that set the standard for transactions in the middle market.
This year’s winners include:
- Hollie Haynes, who took home Dealmaker of the Year for raising a second fund for Luminate Capital Partners, the tech-focused PE firm she founded after leaving Silver Lake.
- TA Associates, which won Private Equity Firm of the Year for growing significantly as the firm celebrated its 50th anniversary and completed its 500th transaction.
- Fortive, which scored Deal of the Year for its $775 million acquisition of Gordian, a provider of construction software in a transformative deal for the construction industry. Soon after snatching up Gordian, Fortive bought Accruent, which develops software used to manage real estate, facilities, and other assets, from Genstar Capital, for $2 billion.
- Nike, which was named Strategic Buyer of the Year, for buying Zodiac and Invertex, a pair of innovative digital startups helping the athletic apparel maker get closer to customers.
Congratulations to all the winners!
