Snyder & Sumpter head ACG Cincinnati's Signature Event


ACG Cincinnati, the membership community for middle-market private equity and leaders focused on corporate growth, is please to announce that Christopher Snyder, Senior Vice President at KeyBank Business Capital, and Kristen Sumpter, Metro Market Leader for Robert Half Management Resources, have been named co-chairs for the 19th Annual Deal Maker Awards Program.  Chris and Kristen, members of the ACG Board, are stepping into the role after nearly five years of highly successful leadership by David Owens and Kelly Tassos.  Under David and Kelly's tenure, Deal Maker reached new levels of success. Lifetime Achievement Honorees included such luminaries as Dr. Candace Kendle, James Wainscott, Bob Castellini, and Jeff Wyler.



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 deal maker to the industry and also the level of creativity, resourcefulness and perseverance it took to complete the deal.
