DETROIT, Oct. 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Huron Capital Partners LLC ("Huron Capital") announced today that Heather Madland, Vice President Of Business Development, has been named one of Crain's Detroit Business' "40 Under 40" for the Class of 2016. For the past 25 years, Crain's Detroit Business, one of Detroit's leading business publications, has recognized 40 metro Detroit professionals who have made significant professional accomplishments before the age of 40.
In recognizing Madland for this list, the publication cited her efforts in helping the firm remain "annually the state's most active private equity firm." Madland joined Huron Capital in 2013 to bolster the firm's business development activities. She has taken the lead in upgrading Huron Capital's customer relationship management system and enhancing its social media presence and brand messaging, all while traveling extensively throughout the country to targeted conferences and industry events. Her efforts helped the firm achieve two consecutive years of record deal activity (2014 and 2015) in which Huron Capital closed 39 new investments, and seven new platform investments since December 2015.
"Heather is a great example of a connector," said Mike Beauregard, Senior Partner at Huron Capital. "She is tireless and a creative talent – a great combination for us. With seven new platform investments and 10 add-on acquisitions in the past 10 months, our firm has been extremely active. We believe that's a result of a proper mix of business development efforts and deal execution. We are proud to have Heather as part of our award winning team."
"It's an honor to be recognized in our hometown by Crain's Detroit Business for our marketing and deal sourcing efforts," said Madland. "We believe Huron has a unique model that has become well-recognized in the private equity industry, and as a team we are actively engaged in the deal origination process. Leading these efforts is incredibly rewarding and I look forward to utilizing this approach for our new Flex Strategy, which is aimed at our less-than majority investment opportunities."
In addition to her work at Huron Capital, Madland is on the board of the Detroit Women's Forum of the Association for Corporate Growth (ACG) Detroit chapter.
