CHICAGO, January 8, 2019 – The Association for Corporate Growth (ACG) announced today that Dixon Hughes Goodman LLP (DHG), a top 20 public accounting firm, is now an Official Sponsor of Growth (OSG) of the middle-market association.
ACG collaborates with organizations like DHG to further the association’s mission to drive middle-market growth. The multi-year sponsorship supports ACG’s large-scale networking events, including the InterGrowth and EuroGrowth conferences, thought leadership content in Middle Market Growth® magazine Middle Market Insights webinars, and other initiatives.
“ACG and DHG are jointly committed to driving growth in the middle market, and this investment underscores that shared mission,” said Angela MacPhee, chair, ACG Global Board of Directors, and partner, Baker Tilly. “We’re grateful for DHG’s ongoing support and look forward to our continued alliance in the years ahead.”
The OSG sponsorship is the highest level of commitment at ACG Global. Through branding and thought leadership opportunities with ACG, sponsoring organizations advance their business goals while contributing to a healthy middle-market dealmaking ecosystem. DHG joins Insperity, a professional employer organization, as ACG Global’s second OSG sponsor.
“We are committed to helping middle-market private equity,” said Scott Linch, partner, DHG Private Equity. “DHG has become a premier middle-market private equity services practice in the U.S. and we have greatly benefited from strategically aligning with ACG.”
Linch was a board member of ACG Charlotte in 2011 when he first attended InterGrowth. Since then, he has served on ACG’s Global Board of Directors and, most recently, as chair of the InterGrowth planning committee. “Scott’s story is one that illustrates the opportunities that become available when companies weave ACG into the fabric of their growth strategy,” MacPhee said.
