Michael E. Gibbons and Scott H. Lang, Senior Managing Directors and Principals at Brown Gibbons Lang & Company, were named U.S. Middle Market Deal Makers of the Year at the Mergers & Acquisitions Advisor Awards in New York City on December 3, 2003.
In a sign that the economic recovery is well under way, more than 250 members of the mergers and acquisitions community turned out to celebrate the winners. The black tie gala event was hosted by CNBC’s Maria Bartiromo at the New York Athletic Club during the seventh semi-annual M&A Advisor Conference.
The awards presentation presented sixteen awards to the top deals and deal makers that set the standard in the middle market M&A sector over the course of the year. The winners were chosen after a rigorous selection process by the publication’s awards committee that comprised figures within the business and financial media communities. The winners were selected from 51 dealmakers and transactions in 16 different categories valued between $10 million and $1 billion.
BGL was selected among three finalists for the top honor, besting nominees that included Barry Diller. They were cited for their creativity, the importance of their firm to the industry, and their perseverance. “We are truly honored to have been selected for this award, “ said Scott Lang. “This is a testament to the quality service our entire firm works so diligently to provide our clients.”
