The Deal Maker Awards are one of the oldest and most prestigious honors within the regional business community. The program recognizes the top deals and leading deal makers within the Tri-State. Nominations are accepted in the categories of corporate, financier/service provider and entrepreneur. An independent group of judges, comprised of former Deal Maker Honorees, review the nominations and select the winners. Criteria used by the judges include the importance of the transaction, product, service or dealmaker to the industry and also the level of creativity, resourcefulness and perseverance it took to complete the deal.
