“Closing the Deal” was the theme of Woodbridge International's recent conference for Woodbridge M&A Advisors held at New York&s Doral Arrowwood Conference Center in mid-October.
The conference drew 57 attendees from 12 countries. Most participants were dealmakers working on Woodbridge mandates from clients across the globe.
Woodbridge Managing Partner, Robert F. Murphy, opened the conference by presenting some of the remarkable growth milestones the firm achieved over the past three years, such as opening 15 new offices, adding 22 new dealmakers and 10 other personnel, and launching 20 new websites in a variety of languages.
Countries represented at this year's “Conference for Closers” included Brazil, Colombia, India, Israel, Portugal, Germany, the Netherlands and Australia. Woodbridge is currently serving clients in all of these countries and plans to double the total number of mandates the firm handles over the next two years.
President Robert Koenig discussed Woodbridge International's innovations over its 22-year history as a leader in mergers and acquisitions deals for companies with $5 million-$200 million in revenue. He affirmed the firm's mission of finding the best possible buyer for its sell-side clients, which means persevering through all obstacles to complete the transaction.
Other highlights of the three-day event included presentations on Woodbridge's ongoing international expansion, vision and growth strategy, deal case studies, a panel discussion on Woodbridge’s global marketing process, a business development session, and a presentation and workshop by a professional training and coaching firm.
“This conference was the second of many more to come. We provided our dealmakers with a valuable set of deal-closing resources, information, practical guidance and inspiration — which will translate into advantages for our clients and continued success for Woodbridge,” said Robert Koenig.
