Environmental Resources Management (ERM), the world’s the world’s leading environmental consultancy, has been awarded the 2009 Environmental Adviser of the Year title by the European Magazine Acquisitions Monthly as part of its annual awards program. This is the fourth time ERM has won this coveted award.
The award will be presented at a ceremony in London on 20 January, having been decided on by a panel of leading M&A figures assembled by Acquisitions Monthly. The decision was based upon the views of dealmakers across the industry as well as votes cast in support of ERM globally by Private Equity and trade clients and co-advisers on transactions.
Mark Errington, ERM’s newly appointed Global Director of M&A Advisory Services, said: “The past year has been another extremely busy one for the ERM Group in general and our M&A advisory teams across the globe in particular. Throughout the year, ERM’s M&A teams have remained exceptionally active and focused on a consistently high standard of service to our clients across our global footprint of offices.
“As most deal makers are now aware, environmental issues are playing an increasingly important role in deals of all sizes and in most industry sectors around the world. Our clients, whether they are Trade, Private Equity or other financial institutions considering the disposal, merger or purchase of businesses, recognize the value we bring to their transactions.
“We believe the 2009 award builds on the excellent reputation our global M&A practice earned in 2008 and enables ERM to take advantage of our leading position in the markets in EMEA, the Americas and Asia Pacific during 2009 and beyond. I have no doubt that 2009 will be another year during which ERM’s M&A specialists will continue to provide our growing list of Private Equity and Trade clients with the high value environmental advice they have come to expect from the company for the transactions they contemplate around the world.
“This award reflects ERM’s leading role in the global environmental consultancy market and re-enforces the company’s reputation as the pre-eminent provider globally of M&A advisory services.”
