"President-elect Trump campaigned on growing the economy and creating jobs. The 200,000 middle-market companies and thousands of middle-market capital providers in the U.S. share those goals,” says Gary LaBranche, CEO of the Association for Corporate Growth, regarding the outcome of the 45th presidential election. "ACG members across America are dedicated to improving our economy and creating jobs to help all Americans succeed. There is much we can accomplish by working together – not only for those millions of Americans who rely on middle-market private capital providers but for the entire country.”
Public policy has been an increasingly significant focus of the ACG for several years. The global organization, which boasts 90,000 middle-market dealmakers, became an official federal lobbying agency in 2013. Recent moves have included opening an office in Washington, D.C. and the promotion of Amber Landis to vice president of public policy.
Mergers & Acquisitions is on site at the 2016 ACG LA Business Conference on Nov. 9, conducting video interviews with dealmakers about the middle market, including thoughts on how the election results will affect M&A. Stay tuned for dealmaker reaction.
