Dieckman Selected as Emerging Leader by M&A Advisor


Taylor Dieckman has been selected as an Emerging Leader by the M&A Advisor. The Emerging Leaders Awards program—originally known as the ‘40 Under 40 Awards’—were created in 2010 to recognize and celebrate the achievements of the outstanding young professionals who have reached a significant level of success while still under the age of 40.

“These impressive young professionals have made notable contributions to our industry and to their communities. Truly, the Emerging Leaders Awardees we are honoring are the best and the brightest. They are the future of the M&A, finance, and turnaround industry” said Roger Aguinaldo, Founder of The M&A Advisor.

Taylor’s M&A practice includes over 90 closed transactions during the past five years, including two closed transactions in 2018 which were finalists for “Deal of the Year” by the M&A Advisor.

“We are extremely  proud of Taylor for receiving this national honor,” said Mike Hupp, President of Koley Jessen and Co-Chair of the M&A Practice. “Taylor has developed a strong following among our clients by being business-minded and laser-focused on their objectives. Clients really appreciate his responsive and practical approach in dealing with any obstacles  in the way of  getting their deal done.”

Taylor helps clients navigate complex business challenges and has significant experience counseling clients on all aspects of M&A transactions including transaction structure, due diligence investigations, negotiation of deal terms, as well as closing and post-closing matters. While his experience includes a broad array of industries, he has deep expertise in the agri-business, senior living, newspaper, and financial institutions industries. Taylor has advised clients such as Tecumseh Poultry LLC (Smart Chicken), Richardson International Ltd., WESTliving, Vitality Senior Living, BH Media, Guild Mortgage Company and Pinnacle Bank in both M&A and general business matters.

The 2019 award winners were chosen from a pool of prominent nominees identified for their notable accomplishments in business and in service to the community. Evaluation of the nominees and selection of the winners was completed by an independent judging panel made up of prominent members and experts in the M&A, finance, and turnaround community.

“Based on their exemplary achievements to date, we believe these 2019 Emerging Leaders Award winners will continue to have a significant and positive effect on the advancement of our industry going forward. With the support of the business, philanthropic, and academic communities, we’ve created a connected leadership community here that will empower these successful young professionals to continue to improve and impact their own and others’ life experiences throughout their careers", added Mr. Aguinaldo.
