GF Data’s CEO, Andy Greenberg, Recognized as Middle Market Thought Leader of the Year

GF Data®, a leading middle market M&A data provider, today announced that its CEO, Andrew T. Greenberg, received the Middle Market Thought Leader of the Year Award at the Alliance of Merger & Acquisition Advisors ® (AM&AA) Winter Conference in Scottsdale, Arizona on January 22.

The award, instituted in 2009 by AM&AA, the leading association and credentialing body for middle market M&A professionals, co-sponsored by Bureau van Dijk and Merrill Data site, honors individuals who have made significant contributions to the middle market M&A profession through the publication of works that promote research and higher standards of excellence.

Andy Greenberg co-founded GF Data® with B. Graeme Frazier, IV in 2006.

“Andy is a pioneer in our industry, committed to providing reliable data and analysis on middle market private equity deals – the kind of focused data that just isn’t available to middle market M&A professionals anywhere else,” said Michael Nall, Founder of the Alliance of Merger & Acquisition Advisors. “We are pleased to thank Andy and recognize GF Data with this award.”

“GF Data grew out of Graeme’s and my experience as deal practitioners and our desire for better, more on-point information on middle market transactions,” Greenberg said. “Through our reports and searchable data base, we continue to try to provide a clear, practical view of valuation, volume, leverage and deal term trends. AM&AA members have been among our closest collaborators in developing and improving our product, so this peer recognition is especially gratifying.”

GF Data uses a proprietary, secure utility to collect and publish completed private transaction information from over 200 PE firms acquiring businesses in the $10-250 million value range. Over 1,000 deal professionals receive GF Data’s quarterly reports and access their data base on valuation, leverage and legal term benchmarks.

In addition to his role at GF Data, Andy is managing director of Fairmount Partners, a private investment bank in the Philadelphia area. Prior to joining Fairmount, Andy ran M&A groups at Brown Brothers Harriman and Commerce Capital Markets. Before his move to investment banking, he was Pennsylvania’s Secretary of Commerce — the youngest in the history of the Commonwealth. Andy has an A.B. from Brown University and a J.D. from Harvard University. He began his career as a corporate lawyer with Drinker Biddle & Reath in Philadelphia.

This year’s Middle Market Thought Leader of the Year Award winners also included Peter Worrell of Bigelow LLC. To date, eight leading professionals have earned the prestigious Middle Market Thought Leader of the Year Award.

Overgrown applications have given way to modular applications, driven by the need to break larger problems into smaller problems. Similarly large monolithic development processes have been forced to be broken into smaller agile development cycles. Looking at trends in software development, microservices architectures meet the same demands. Additional benefits of microservices architectures are compartmentalization and a limited impact of service failure versus a complete software malfunction. ...
"We help to transform an organization and their operations and make them more efficient, more agile, and more nimble to move into the cloud or to move between cloud providers and create an agnostic tool set," noted Jeremy Steinert, DevOps Services Practice Lead at WSM International, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @DevOpsSummit, held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City.
The basic integration architecture, as defined by ESBs, hasn’t changed for more than a decade. Most cloud integration providers still rely on an ESB architecture and their proprietary connectors. As a result, enterprise integration projects suffer from constraints of availability and reliability of these connectors that are not re-usable across other integration vendors. However, the rapid adoption of APIs and almost ubiquitous availability of APIs amongst most SaaS and Cloud applications are ra...

Manufacturing has widely adopted standardized and automated processes to create designs, build them, and maintain them through their life cycle. However, many modern manufacturing systems go beyond mechanized workflows to introduce empowered workers, flexible collaboration, and rapid iteration. Such behaviors also characterize open source software development and are at the heart of DevOps culture, processes, and tooling.
