November Luncheon

ACG MN Luncheon with Nii Quaye, Vice President, Mergers and Acquisitions at Pentair

Please join ACG at our November 18th luncheon where we will feature Nii Quaye, Vice President, Mergers and Acquisitions at Pentair. Mr. Quaye joined Pentair in February 2011 as Vice President of Mergers & Acquisitions and has responsibility for Pentair’s Corporate Development function. This includes leading acquisition, divestiture, and equity investment activity across the corporation. 

In 2012, Pentair merged with Tyco's Flow Control Unit, which was a very tight strategic fit. The merger created a strong leader in a fragmented industry. Mr. Quaye will share the fine points of this deal as well as Pentair's transformation over time and how they think about M&A.

Immediately prior to joining Pentair, Mr. Quaye had a ten year career at ADC Telecommunications, Inc., where he served most recently as the Vice President, Strategy and Business Development. In that capacity helped facilitate the sale of the company to TE Connectivity. Prior to ADC, Mr. Quaye was in the Strategy & Business Development group at Cargill, and the finance and marketing teams at Guidant Corporation. 

Mr. Quaye received a master of business administration degree in finance from the University of Minnesota, Carlson School of Management.
