He added, "The addition of David Fergusson to our team will help us to aggressively execute on our priority growth initiatives and bring added value to our clients."

Brenen Hofstadter, Generational's Chief M&A Officer, stated "We have known David for over a decade, and he sees the M&A business the same way we do. He applies excellence, diligence, and integrity with every client engagement. This is a landmark new hire and expansion into the Northeast market."

"This is a very exciting time to join the Generational Group as they are in an unparalleled state of dynamic growth," said Fergusson.

"I have such great admiration for the company's leadership, their service to the corporate business community and their collaborative role in the advancement of our industry. I am looking forward to contributing my experience to the firm's advancement."

Prior to joining The M&A Advisor in 2010, Fergusson was actively involved in the investment banking community and was credited with executing some of the leading consolidations in transportation and recreational services.

A pioneer in cross-border mergers and acquisitions between the United States and China, he was recognized with the 2017 M&A Leadership Award from the China Mergers & Acquisitions Association. Mr. Fergusson is a graduate of Kings Edgehill School and the University of Guelph.
