Three Professionals Receive Emerging Leader Awards by The M&A Advisor

The M&A Advisor announced Jeff Gasbarra, Managing Director, Steven Shenker, Managing Director and Blair Woolheater, Senior Director, as recipients of the 15th Annual Emerging Leaders Award.

The M&A Advisor, a globally renowned organization known for recognizing and showcasing leading M&A, financing, and turnaround professionals, established this awards program to honor excellence and foster mentorship and professional development among emerging leaders in the corporate finance and dealmaking industries.

Jeff, Steven and Blair have been chosen from a pool of prominent nominees 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.

“The world of dealmaking is always changing, and, over the past 15 years, The M&A Advisor has recognized the brilliance of over fifteen hundred professionals—experts who set the bar high in their fields. The Emerging Leader Award recipients, who have the spirit of innovation and ambition, are ready to shape the future of our industry. By creating a network of business visionaries, philanthropists, educators, and personal growth mentors, we are building a vibrant ‘leadership community.’ Our mission is clear: to give these rising stars the tools and motivation to not only succeed in their careers but also to make a positive difference in the lives of others, thus sparking a wave of transformation,” said Roger Aguinaldo, Founder and CEO of The M&A Advisor.

The M&A Advisor will welcome the winners of the Emerging Leaders Award at a formal black-tie Awards Gala in New York City. This distinguished event will present them to the business community and recognize their outstanding accomplishments. The Emerging Leaders Awards Gala is part of the 2024 Leadership in Dealmaking Summit on September 23-24, 2024. This unique event connects current and former recipients of the Emerging Leaders Award with each other and industry leaders.
