YACG Cleveland

As the largest young professional cohort across 59 global ACG chapters, Young ACG Cleveland (YACG),  connects its young dealmaking professionals (age 35 and under) with peers across all of the mergers and acquisitions services and roles – private equity, corporate development, banking, accounting, insurance, wealth management, consulting and more.

Unique among all of the young professional cohorts across ACG, YACG Cleveland has its own governing committee consisting of a chair, events committee, and membership committee. This group meets quarterly to decide on programming and conduct outreach to potential members.
