Minority Business Summit Tomorrow In NYC

MBE Mergers & Acquisitions Summit will take pace tomorrow, May 18, 2010. Sponsored by the Council of Urban Professionals (CUP), Bank of America Merrill Lynch and The Williams Capital Group, the summit will bring together select participants to focus on how mergers & acquisitions, private equity, joint ventures and other strategic initiatives can create large scale minority business enterprises (MBEs). Many of the nation’s largest minority firms began as an M&A transaction, and some corporations have effectively used these tools to create sustainable large scale MBEs. 

 

CEO, CFO, and Corporate Development leaders from several Fortune 100 corporations, including Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer, Microsoft and Pepsi, as well as representatives of successful MBEs will discuss their experiences and share best practices. Participation from private equity firms and other sectors (e.g. professional services firms) critical to these transactions will enable a robust dialogue around how to increase the number of MBEs of scale thriving in the marketplace.

 

Featured speakers and panelists include, among others:

  • David Darnell, President of Global Commercial Banking, Bank of America Merrill Lynch
  • Mark J. Guinan, CFO, Johnson & Johnson
  • Steve Pamon, VP & Head of Business Development, NFL
  • Fernando Hernandez, Supplier Diversity Director, Microsoft
  • Chris Knox, Director, Supplier Diversity, Pepsi

 

The summit will take place at Bank of America Merrill Lynch, One Bryant Park, 2nd Floor, from 8am – 6pm on May 18.
