Sanginario Appointed to The MidMarket Alliance Advisory Board

CHICAGO, IL _ The Midmarket Alliance (MMA), has named Kenneth J. Sanginario, Founder of Corporate Value Metrics, of Westborough, Massachusetts, to its Advisory Board. MMA is headquartered in Chicago, Illinois, and is an invitation only collaborative share group comprised of experienced business investment and advisory experts from all disciplines whose goal is to connect people, ideas, and capital with the best ways to maximize value for business owners worldwide.

“Ken’s unique breadth of technical expertise, and his collaborative approach, will make him a highly valued member of The MidMarket Alliance Advisory Board, and we are delighted that he has agreed to become the educational leader of The Alliance,” said Michael Nall, Founder of The Alliance of Merger & Acquisition Advisors and The MidMarket Alliance.

Research has shown that the middle market is considered one of the most important drivers of America’s economy and accounts for a third of private sector GDP and jobs.

The MMA, a sister organization to The Alliance of Merger & Acquisition Advisors, was developed to provide members with premier professionals in the middle market, and offers the opportunity to share best practices, publish articles, find valuable resource tools, and make actionable connections through a cutting edge lead generation engine.

In addition, The MMA examines the relationship between transferable enterprise value and personal wealth planning; explores how the capital markets can be used to achieve business and personal objectives; and provides in-depth analysis of specific topics and issues unique to owners of small to medium-sized companies. The MMA Advisors will be the “voices” of the middle market, leading the way in best practices and thought leadership. The Alliance is being positioned as a trusted go-to resource in the middle market.

“The MidMarket Alliance is creating a paradigm shift in the way the lower middle market will be facilitated. Its unique ecosystem will result in businesses coming to market with a higher likelihood of success, and at higher valuations, than ever before. It is an absolute honor to be invited onto the MMA Advisory Board, and an even bigger honor to become its educational leader. I look forward to working with the extremely talented MMA team that has already been assembled, and to developing an educational series that will advance the MMA’s overall mission,” Sanginario said.

Sanginario has over 25 years of experience providing financial and operational leadership to middle market companies. He is the Founder and Developer of the Value Opportunity Profile®, a proprietary tool designed to provide a cost-effective way to identify, prioritize, and implement initiatives that can increase a company’s business value 80% to 100% over a three to five year period. He is also the Founding Partner of NorthStar Management Partners, a boutique consultancy providing corporate finance, performance improvement, turnaround management and strategic advisory services to middle market companies in transition.

Previously, he was a corporate advisor, and held executive finance positions in both public and private companies, focusing on turning around distressed operations, and leading the efforts of financial restructurings and recapitalizations.

His credentials include: CPA, CMAP (Chartered M&A Professional), CTP (Certified Turnaround Professional), CVA (Certified Valuation Analyst), and ABV (Accredited in Business Valuation), and he received a master’s degree from Boston College, as well as both master’s and bachelor’s degrees from Bentley College.  He is an accomplished author and speaker on turnaround and corporate valuations, and is a frequent speaker at national and regional conferences.

“We’re looking forward to Ken’s leadership in developing our educational series and in advancing the overall growth of The Alliance,” Nall said.
