We are very pleased to announce that Generational Group has been named a finalist for 26 M&A Advisor awards, including both Valuation Firm of the Year and Investment Banker of the Year for our own Brenen Hofstadter, Chief M&A Officer, Generational Group.

The first stage of evaluation saw an independent panel of judges select the finalist for this prestigious event from a pool of qualified nominees. The judges will now face the challenging task of determining the award winners from those selected, to be announced at the 18th Annual M&A Advisor Awards Gala on November 19 at the New York Athletic Club.

“Today’s geopolitical climate presents our industry professionals and the businesses they serve with unique challenges. This year’s finalists exemplify the fortitude, perseverance, and ingenuity required not only to get the deal done but to excel in the field of mergers and acquisitions.

“It is truly an honor for The M&A Advisor, and for me personally, to recognize the contributions of the 2019 award finalists,” Aguinaldo added.

Our industry’s leading firms and practitioners are well represented on this year’s list of finalists, including but not limited to:

  • BlackRock

“These nominations are the culmination of the hard work and dedication of our entire team,” said Ryan Binkley, President & CEO of Generational.  “We have transferred nearly $5 billion in wealth to our clients, and it is both humbling and a privilege to play a role in creating a legacy for them and their families that will last for generations.”

Congratulations to all the members of our team who have been a part of securing these nominations, and we look forward to informing our readers how we fare in November.
