DENVER, May 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The M&A Advisor announced the winners of the 40 Under 40 Emerging Leaders Awards on Monday, May 18. Robert Klamser, co-founder and president of claims & noticing firm UpShot Services LLC, www.upshotservices.com, was named a winner in the Service Professional category. This marks the second consecutive year that UpShot Services' management team has been recognized with this award.
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. Robert has been chosen for his accomplishments and expertise from a pool of international nominees by an independent judging panel of distinguished business leaders.
"In 2010, we initiated the 40 Under 40 Awards to recognize the emerging leaders of the M&A, Financing and Turnaround industries," said David Fergusson, president of The M&A Advisor. "It is our belief that this group of accomplished women and men will have a significant effect on the advancement of our industry. And it is our great pleasure to recognize them and provide a forum for them to meet and engage with one another."
Robert co-founded UpShot Services LLC in 2012 with Travis Vandell, UpShot's CEO. Robert and the UpShot team have introduced new advances in technology to streamline the administrative aspects of corporate bankruptcy, and in the process have accomplished numerous industry firsts. Among other milestones, UpShot was the first claims and noticing agent to have received Bankruptcy Court approval on behalf of its clients for electronic claims filing and balloting procedures in active cases. Before co-founding UpShot, Robert was the director of corporate restructuring services and the former vice president of operations at Kurtzman Carson Consultants (KCC), a leading claims agent.
"It's an honor to be recognized by M&A Advisor as an emerging leader. This recognition really speaks to UpShot Services' growth and development as an innovator in the restructuring industry," Klamser comments. "With more than 25 active engagements in less than three years, we continue to bring new technology and a higher level of service to the industry, including innovations such as electronic claims and balloting, real-time noticing information and live online chat support for creditors."
On Monday, June 29, The M&A Advisor will host a black tie Awards Gala at the Roosevelt Hotel in Manhattan to introduce the 40 Under 40 Emerging Leaders Award Winners to the business community and celebrate their achievements. The Awards Gala is a feature of the 2015 Emerging Leaders Summit -- an exclusive event pairing current and past 40 Under 40 winners together with their peers and industry stalwarts.
