A Letter from the Chairman of InterGrowth 2019

DHG Private Equity (CPA)

InterGrowth is a foundational part of my career. Nearly a decade ago, I cut my teeth on the national M&A stage and learned to hold my own in a fast-paced, deal-maker environment.

When I attended my first InterGrowth, I was an awestruck observer. I watched in wonder as high-level M&A professionals and senior lenders interfaced. I was wowed by ACG’s exceptional programming, the dynamic keynote speakers, and the rapid-fire deals in play. InterGrowth amazement is steadfast.


“We plan for this thrilling event, mapping it out as some might
methodize ahead of a marathon, a family vacation to Disney World,
or a championship game. InterGrowth is DHG’s Superbowl.”


I attended my first InterGrowth when my employer, Dixon Hughes Goodman (DHG), a nationally recognized accounting firm, sought a national stage. We found that stage at InterGrowth. InterGrowth was the perfect destination for us to have focused conversations with private equity practices, to measure up competitors, and network with middle market leaders.

Fast-forward to eight years later, when we write InterGrowth into our calendar years in advance. We plan for this thrilling event, mapping it out as some might methodize ahead of a marathon, a family vacation to Disney World, or a championship game.

InterGrowth is DHG’s Superbowl. Each year, we strategize, we plan and we execute. We plot our success and we secure it. The business gained and the relationships made, keep our private equity practice operating and executing throughout the year.

The InterGrowth Steering Committee, in partnership with the ACG staff, will deliver a meeting of unparalleled opportunities. There’s so much private capital in the market, you just need to know where to look. I’ve dedicated much of my career to conducting buy-side and sell-side due-diligence services for clients in a variety of industries with transaction sizes ranging from two million to more than nine billion dollars. InterGrowth aids this effort. InterGrowth is your fast pass to capital.

On behalf of the entire InterGrowth 2019 steering committee, ACG’s board of directors and all of the partners, I look forward to seeing you at InterGrowth May 6-8 in Orlando, Florida at Waldorf Astoria Orlando & Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek Resort.
