RSM's David Van Wert Wins The M&A Advisor Emerging Leaders Award



RSM US LLP (“RSM”) – the nation's leading provider of audit, tax and consulting services focused on the middle market – is pleased to announce that David Van Wert, transaction advisory services (TAS) partner in RSM’s San Jose office, has won The M&A Advisor’s Emerging Leaders award.

“I am thrilled to receive The M&A Advisor’s Emerging Leaders award,” said Van Wert. “This is an exciting, fast-paced industry, and to be recognized alongside the best dealmakers across the country is very humbling. I believe it also speaks to the tremendous value RSM strives to provide to our clients every day.”

“The Annual M&A Advisor Emerging Leaders Awards was born as the 40 Under 40 Awards in the United States in 2010 to recognize and celebrate the achievements of young M&A, financing and turnaround professionals who had reached a significant level of success and made a notable contribution to their industry and community. With the expansion of the Emerging Leaders program to the United Kingdom and Europe in 2016, the 2017 U.S. award winners join a truly global network of outstanding young professionals,” said David Fergusson, president and co-CEO of The M&A Advisor.

The 2017 award winners were chosen from a pool of prominent nominees for their notable accomplishments in business and in service to the community.

“David is certainly very deserving of this great recognition,” said Michael J. Grossman, principal and national leader of RSM’s TAS practice. “Industry focus is so important to our middle market clients, and David is dedicated to providing clients with real value and significant insights related to the software/technology industry.”

Founded in 1998, The M&A Advisor offers insights and intelligence on mergers and acquisitions and is a think tank and leadership organization for M&A, restructuring and corporate finance professionals. The M&A Advisor created the recognition awards program to promote mentorship and professional development among the emerging leaders in the M&A industry.
