Meet the Second Generation of Mergers and Acquisitions Experts

In the early 1980s business brokerage was just emerging into a full-blown profession. Although we recall professional organizations coming along by the mid ’80s, we didn’t hear the term “mergers and acquisitions.” After the recession of the early ’90s, however, “M&A” came into wider use.

The following mergers and acquisitions experts, members of Business Broker Services’ Advisory Board, were very young then (probably busy with after-school activities and deciding on colleges and majors).
