BDA Partners was named investment bank of the year at the ACG New York Champion’s Awards.
These awards honor the leading middle market transactions, firms and dealmakers in New York. ACG New York is the founding chapter of The Association for Corporate Growth, the largest association of middle market deal making and corporate professionals. An independent panel of industry experts determined the most important transactions, services, dealmakers and firms in the industry over the last year, as well as the quality, creativity, resourcefulness and perseverance of industry participants.
At the same time, BDA’s New York office has moved upstairs, to a larger physical space on the 29th floor of the same building, 1270 Avenue of the Americas.
BDA New York is managed by senior bankers Euan Rellie, Justine Mannering and Taylor Whitman, as well as by BDA’s CFO, Bill Pullano. In the last twelve months, the firm has advised on transactions involving Baird Capital, International Paper, Littlejohn, Magna, Sun Capital Partners, TPG, and Wellspring.

BDA is winning repeat business from corporate and financial sponsors, both Western and Asian. We’re seeing record dealflow, and the next 18 months will be exciting for our firm. We’re grateful to our clients, to our staff, and to our partners at William Blair.”
