NEW YORK, July 12 /PRNewswire/ -- The M&A Advisor today announced the winners of the inaugural 40 Under 40 M&A Advisor Recognition Awards.

The M&A Advisor, renowned globally for its recognition of leading M&A, financing and turnaround professionals, created this event to promote mentorship and professional development amongst the emerging business leaders.

The 2010 40 Under 40 Award winners have been chosen for their accomplishments and expertise from a pool of international nominees by an independent judging panel of distinguished business leaders.

"We've been recognizing transactions and teams for their achievements over the past decade.  This is the first time we will be recognizing individuals — the up and coming leaders still under the age of 40 — who've been handling the M&A, financing and turnaround transactions behind the scenes.  I look forward to meeting all of them in person and bestowing upon them The M&A Advisor's highest individual achievement," says Roger Aguinaldo, CEO and founder of The M&A Advisor.

On Monday July 26th, The M&A Advisor will host a televised black tie Awards Gala at The Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel in Los Angeles to introduce the 40 Under 40 Award winners to the business community and celebrate their achievements.
