Phil Pizzurro Emerging Leader

Generational Capital Markets, Member FINRA/SIPC and a leading mergers and acquisitions advisor for privately held businesses, is pleased to announce that Phil Pizzurro, Managing Director Mergers & Acquisitions, has been recognized by The M&A Advisor as an Emerging Leader in 2019.

The M&A Advisor, renowned globally for its recognition of leading M&A, financing, and turnaround professionals, created this awards program to honor the emerging leaders of the industry, and to promote mentorship and professional development of these talented young professionals.

“The Emerging Leaders Awards program — originally known as the ‘40 Under 40 Awards’ — were created in 2010 to recognize and celebrate the achievements of the outstanding young professionals who have reached a significant level of success while still under the age of 40. These impressive young professionals have made notable contributions to our industry and to their communities. Truly, the Emerging Leaders Awardees we are honoring are the best and the brightest. They are the future of the M&A, finance, and turnaround industry,” said Roger Aguinaldo, Founder of The M&A Advisor.

The 2019 award winners were chosen from a pool of prominent nominees identified for their notable accomplishments in business and in service to the community. Evaluation of the nominees and selection of the winners was completed by an independent judging panel made up of prominent members and experts in the M&A, finance, and turnaround community.

“I am very proud of Phil and his 10+ years of growth as one of our leading deal making professionals”, said Brenen Hofstadter, Supervising Principal, Generational Capital Markets. “Being recognized by his peers as one of the emerging leaders in our industry is a testament to his hard work and his dedication to our clients.”

On Tuesday September 17, 2019, The M&A Advisor will host a black tie Awards Gala at the New York Athletic Club in Manhattan to introduce the 2019 Emerging Leaders Award Winners to the business community and to celebrate their achievements. The Awards Gala is a feature of the 2019 Emerging Leaders’ Summit — an exclusive event bringing current and past Emerging Leaders Awards winners together with their peers and industry stalwarts.

Ryan Binkley, President and CEO for Generational, added, “It’s terrific to see Phil recognized with this award. In every client relationship we have our core values in mind, and Phil exemplifies the commitment, dedication, and excellence we strive for with each client we have the honor of serving.”
