ACG Cincinnati's members represent companies and industries that are as varied as the unique characteristics of our Tri-State region: corporate executives, commercial and investment bankers, private equity investors as well as legal, accounting and finance professionals, most of whom specialize in mergers and acquisitions or corporate development.

The diversity of professions and industries is one of ACG Cincinnati's greatest strengths, along with the Chapter’s commitment to hosting events that bring members together and stay apprised of the business environment. ACG Cincinnati is more than a networking group—it’s an organization of individuals
pursuing the shared goal of corporate growth.
ACG Cincinnati’s membership is composed of over 300 individuals in decision-making positions who have personal and professional interest in corporate growth including organic growth, mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, licensing arrangements, or in the provision of services facilitating such activities.
ACG Cincinnati provides the best forum in the Tri-State region to exchange information on corporate growth and meet others with similar professional interests. ACG members have the opportunity to:
  • Learn from senior leaders and subject matter experts at monthly programs and events
  • Connect with others focused on best practices, organic and acquisitive grow
  • Contribute to the business community through volunteer opportunities
  • Develop talent by engaging junior associates with cohorts in focused networking settings
Celebrating 20+ Years of Service to Cincinnati's Business Community

In 1993, Donald Feldman, Bill Kohlhepp, Christopher Lockhart, Dale Medford, Ron Moss, Don Weston and the late Chuck Comfort and Joe Rippe recognized a need for an organization for professionals involved in corporate growth, corporate development, and mergers and acquisitions for middle-market companies.  The first meeting was at Morraine Country Club and events alternated between markets for several years. 

From a modest beginning, with less than 10 members, ACG Cincinnati has grown to more than 300 strong.  For more than 20 years, ACGC has focused on strategic initiatives that increase revenues, profits, and, ultimately, stakeholder value in constituent organizations. Through ACG, Greater Cincinnati businesses can connect with over 14,000 members representing Fortune 1000, FTSE 100, and middle-market companies in 56 chapters in North America, Europe and Asia
