(Washington, DC – February 5, 2014) The Gaffin Group was specially mentioned for its part in supporting the Association for Corporate Growth’s efforts in delivering a first-ever public policy agenda developed by the ACG in early 2013 and as updated for a recent policy summit in Washington, DC.
Mark Gaffin, Founder and President of The Gaffin Group said: “We are deeply honored that the ACG values our contribution – and we hope to redouble those efforts in areas were we can support the Public Policy Agenda that the ACG has developed. Honestly, my efforts pale in comparison to the great work that the Association has done through its professional staff, other member volunteers, and the ACG Board of Directors’ leadership [note: Pam Hedrickson, ACG Global Chairman; COO, The Riverside Company].
I am delighted be a part of a dedicated working committee which has put together, I believe, a strong statement in support of the Middle Market which is so vital to the health and growth of the US economy. This agenda addresses many of the key challenges facing private capital formation in the sector. Because of the importance to so many in our industry – equity providers, debt providers, operating companies, service providers, advisors, etc. – I encourage other members to consider supporting the ACG’s efforts explicitly. I fundamentally believe the group is making a difference with its efforts around public policy both on and off the Hill. And I am very glad to be a small part of that effort.”
