The Merger &Acquisition Advisor’s 7th Annual Emerging Leaders Award goes to Tony Marsala, the COO of Madison Street Capital. Madison Street Capital is the Chicago-based investment firm that is known as one of the leaders in the merger and acquisition industry. Madison Street Capital focuses on companies that have between $2 million and $500 million in assets, and the company likes to pair companies that have a presence in emerging markets as well as developed markets. Mr. Marsala was recognized by the M&A Advisors because of his expertise in the industry as well as his accomplishments. The panel of independent judges chose Marsala from a pool of distinguished business leaders in the Merger and Acquisition industry.
Anthony Marsala has been in the investment banking industry for 15 years. Marsala is a Certified Valuator analysis in conjunction with the National Association of Certified Valuators and Analysts. Tony was recently named a National Association of Certified Valuators and Analysts honoree during its 40 Under Forty 2015 recognition program, and he was also chosen as a Crain’s Leadership Academy Program participant for 2016.
Tony is also the co-founder of Madison Street Capital. In his acceptance speech, Tony gave most of the credit to the Madison Street Capital team. Marsala said the Annual M&A Advisor Emerging Leaders Awards started in 2010 in the United States as the 40 Under 40 Awards. The 40 Under 40 Awards honors the achievements of young merger and acquisition managers that made important contributions to the merger and acquisition industry.
When Marsala was asked to define Madison Street Capital, he said the company is an international investment firm with offices in Asia, Africa, and North America. The company likes to find companies that have positive cash flow and a productive profit history in emerging markets and then match them with companies that have similar characteristics but function in different markets. Madison Street not only concentrates on mergers and acquisitions, but the company also offers advisory advice as well as financial and marketing advice.
The Merger &Acquisition Advisor’s 7th Annual Emerging Leaders Award black tie event will be held in June at the New York Athletic Club.
