Welcome to ACG Wisconsin

Welcome to the Wisconsin Chapter of the Association for Corporate Growth. ACG Wisconsin is the region’s premier organization dedicated to profiling, promoting and celebrating corporate growth. Our chapter is the local presence of the Association for Corporate Growth (ACG), a global organization of 15,000 professionals involved in acquisitions, strategic and organic middle-market business growth.

Since our inception, ACG Wisconsin has grown steadily and is today comprised of over 220 leaders responsible for their company’s M&A and corporate growth initiatives. Approximately two-thirds of our typically C-level membership represents area corporations or private equity firms, with the remaining one-third coming from the investment banking, attorney, accountant, banker or other service professions. The strength of ACG Wisconsin’s membership was recently recognized through our award as the #1 ACG chapter worldwide in member retention at over 90%.

The mission of ACG Wisconsin is simple: help business leaders grow their companies. We do this through high quality programming content and focused networking opportunities for members. Our steady lineup of monthly events helps to showcase corporate success stories told by business leaders in both large and emerging companies. We also host a number of topical programs such as panel discussions of the capital markets or conducting business internationally. Solid networking with other business leaders is always a hallmark of ACG Wisconsin events.

Thank you for visiting our website. We encourage you to explore our "Join ACG" section for information regarding membership if you have an interest in ACG Wisconsin.

Best regards,

Tom Walton

M&A Deals

ACG Wisconsin tracks M&A deals that have occurred in Wisconsin, starting in 2011, using deals reported in local media and in Capital IQ. We analyze data and trends and share this data with members and media. We encourage ACG WI members to submit deals year-round that you have completed, either as a principal or advisor, that involve a Wisconsin based buyer or seller.

Recent ACG WI Deal Log results were shared at the April 2013 meeting and published in the Milwaukee BizTimes.


Congratulations to the 2014 ACG Cup Winner!
