Benchmark International's Kendall Stafford Wins "Top USA Woman Deal Maker Award"

Posted on April 12, 2022 By

Benchmark International’s own Kendall Stafford has won the Top USA Woman Deal Maker Award from the 4th Annual USA Growth Intelligence Forum and the USA M&A Atlas Awards.

The award singularly honors the A-list of the most talented, respected, and brilliant women dealmakers from private equity, venture capital, investment banks, legal, and restructuring transactional communities. It is officially “award winner recognition,” unlike industry lists, rankings, editorial praise, or write-ups.

Each year, the prestigious and independently governed M&A Atlas Awards honor the best value-creating transactions, outstanding firms, leaders, and dealmakers exclusively from the middle-market deal communities.

The awards ceremony will be held virtually on May 5, 2022, and will provide a vital platform to safely connect, share insights, and celebrate achievements. Respected executives will meet to galvanize ideas on how to successfully plan, source, and close value-creating transactions.

She has led some of the largest and most complicated deals within the industry. She views each client’s listing as an opportunity for her and her team to prove themselves by working diligently towards a successful outcome. Not only is she accountable for our client experiences, brand recognition, team development, and deal production, she is also a member of our Major Transaction Team, working closely with teams that focus on deals with $100M+ in value.

Gregory Jackson, CEO of Benchmark International, stated, “The firm is proud to congratulate Kendall on this honor. We are fortunate to have such a brilliant game changer on our team, and we look forward to seeing her continue to be a true wonder woman.”
