FirePower Capital’s Majed Masad Receives the M&A Advisor’s Annual Emerging Leaders Award

The M&A Advisor announced FirePower Capital’s Majed Masad as a recipient of its Emerging Leaders Award.

The M&A Advisor, renowned globally for its recognition of leading M&A, financing and turnaround professionals, created the Annual Emerging Leaders Awards, now in its seventh edition, to celebrate deal professionals who have reached a significant level of success before the age of 40.

Majed Masad, who heads FirePower Capital’s M&A group, was chosen by an independent panel for his stellar track record in 2015 and for his leadership in building the firm’s practice since 2012.

“I am excited to receive this award, as it validates my team’s different approach to deal-making. In the last few years we have come a long way, and I would not receive this award without continuous support from my team at FirePower Capital. We have a lot of truly gifted dealmakers, and I think they all deserve this as much as I do,” commented Majed Masad.

“Since the firm’s inception in 2012, we have been focused on attracting the best talent to support Majed as he builds our M&A group. I am extremely happy that the industry recognizes his, and by extension, their efforts,” said Ilan Jacobson, Founding Partner and CEO of FirePower Capital.

“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 Canada, the United Kingdom, and Europe earlier this year, Majed and other award winners join a truly global network of young leaders,” said David Fergusson, President and Co-CEO of The M&A Advisor.

On June 10, The M&A Advisor will host a black tie Awards Gala at the New York Athletic Club in Manhattan to introduce the Emerging Leaders Award Winners to the business community and celebrate their achievements.
