NEW ACG GLOBAL BOARD MEMBERS - One is our chapter member!!!
Staying relevant as an organization requires leaders with innovative ideas and a commitment to driving change in creative ways. The Association for Corporate Growth is no exception, so the addition of seven new members to its global board of directors on Sept. 1 is an important milestone. The seven are based in cities across the country and reflect the varied professional makeup of ACG’s membership. They will each serve three-year terms. Selected through an application process that began earlier this year, the new members of the 27-person board bring a fresh set of ideas to the organization, from how to adapt as middle-market private equity activity continues to increase, to ways to enhance best-practice sharing among chapters. Get to know the new faces on the board: where they came from and their goals for the organization, plus some insight into how they spend their time outside of work and ACG.

Home chapter: ACG Los Angeles
Andrew Apfelberg is a past president of ACG Los Angeles, where he continues to serve on the board and as the chapter’s Business Conference co-chair. He also leads its family office initiative.
Among Apfelberg’s goals for his time on the board is to further integrate ACG’s European members, with whom he has “developed close relationships through soccer-watching events at past InterGrowth (conferences).” He also plans to explore ACG involvement in industry events and trade shows.
Outside of work, Apfelberg has pursued hobbies that help him remain balanced, personally and professionally. He takes Krav Maga, an intense Israeli MMA-style of self-defense, and also plays soccer—activities that he complements with meditation and gardening.
