    The M&A Advisor announced the winners of the 40 Under 40 Recognition Awards on Wednesday, April 30. Brian Grant, a certified turnaround professional and managing director at Conway MacKenzie Inc., was named a winner for 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.

    Grant has been chosen for his accomplishments and expertise from a pool of international nominees by an independent judging panel of distinguished business leaders. Grant has been involved with a number of significant engagements both within and outside of a formal reorganization process. In court, he has served as an expert witness on multiple occasions in the context of cash collateral and plan feasibility matters. Out of court, he has experience working for both debtors and creditors on restructurings, loan workout situations, acquisitions, and liquidations. Grant is also a trusted advisor to several prominent special situation private equity funds, often called on to assist with their portfolio companies.

    “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 24, 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.
