Mr. Paul Procops, M&A Services’ Vice President – Winner in the Emerging Dealmaker category.

“The Emerging Leaders Awards program—originally known as the ‘40 Under 40 Awards’—were created in 2010 to recognize and celebrate the achievements of the outstanding young professionals who have reached a significant level of success while still under the age of 40. These impressive young professionals have made notable contributions to our industry and to their communities. Truly, the Emerging Leaders Awardees we are honoring are the best and the brightest. They are the future of the M&A, finance, and turnaround industry” said Roger Aguinaldo, Founder of The M&A Advisor.

The 2019 award winners were chosen from a pool of prominent nominees identified for their notable accomplishments in business and in service to the community. Evaluation of the nominees and selection of the winners was completed by an independent judging panel made up of prominent members and experts in the M&A, finance, and turnaround community.

“It’s an honor to be recognized by the M&A Advisor as an Emerging Leader in the Dealmaker category.” said Mr. Procops.

“Mr. Procops’ determination and hard work has led him to become not only a leader and asset to the firm, but also a recognized and trusted contact throughout the industry” said M&A Services’ CEO, Jason Murgio. “He has a strong moral compass and can always be counted on to do right by his clients. His ability to deliver the best solutions to his clients and work his way through complex finance deals truly denotes him as an emerging leader and respected investment banker.”

Within his nine years at the firm, Mr. Procops has grown to be one of the top three dealmakers, completing in excess of $500MM in transaction value. He has also been instrumental at mentoring and grooming younger members of the Firm as they learn and grow within the business. His ability to work with “C” level executives at a young age, successfully acting as the deal leader on large insurance company transactions, has set him apart from his peers. Mr. Procops is trusted amongst the senior members of the firm to handle the most important and high-profile transactions due to his ability not only to understand the complexity of such deals, but to collaborate with executives and effectively manage expectations.
