Learn About Our Upcoming Events
Welcome to the ACG Connecticut Web Site!
The Connecticut Chapter of the Association for Corporate Growth (ACG Connecticut) is one of the fastest growing, most vibrant ACG chapters in the country. ACG Connecticut is comprised of close to 300 local professionals focused on middle-market corporate growth (i.e.: mergers and acquisitions, financing opportunities, business development, joint ventures, licensing arrangements, etc.), including a diverse group of private equity funds, intermediaries, lenders, and service providers.

We believe that ACG Connecticut is one of the best networking organizations focused on middle-market deal-making in the area. I would like to invite you to
join our organization and/or attend our next event!

Karin (McKittrick) Kovacic
President, ACG Connecticut

After the Champagne: Making Merger Integration work


 Mergers always start with buoyant optimism about synergies and growth, but many of them fall short of their ambitions. Research suggests that mergers fail not because of poor strategy but because of flawed execution, especially when it comes to integrating two often very different organizations.  Why are some merger integrations more successful than others? What can be learned from those that have worked - and those that have not? What strategies can help improve the odds of a successful integration?

Richard Mahony, an expert on risk communications, will explore these issues, drawing on his experience working with public and private companies to help them communicate effectively at critical moments to reach their goals.
