MACD Awards  |  The Deal Economy Event
The Most Admired Corporate Dealmakers award recognizes the best corporate dealmaking teams at acquisitive, large-cap U.S. companies in ten industry groups. Understanding the difficulty of dealmaking, in good as well as tough times, winners are selected based on five criteria: overall strategy, demonstrated skill of the deal team, proficiency at identifying value, execution and diversification. The winners will be announced on November 17, 2014 and recognized at an awards dinner during The Deal Economy Event on December 4, 2014.
