Bach & Hurley 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 Kendra Bach, Vice President at Wells Fargo Commercial Banking, and Michael Hurley, Partner for Calfee, have been named co-chairs for the 21th Annual Deal Maker Awards Program.  Kendra and Michael, members of the ACG Board, are stepping into the role after nearly three years of highly successful leadership by Christ Snyder and Kristen Sumpter.  Under Chris and Kristen's tenure, Deal Maker reached new levels of success. Lifetime Achievement Honorees included such luminaries as Glen Mayfield and Ted Robinson of River Cities Capital Funds, and the Founding Members of ACG Donald Feldman, Dill Kohlhepp, Christopher Lockhart, Dale Medford, Ron Moss, Chuck Comfort, and Joe Rippe.

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, 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.
