Honoring Middle Market Leaders

The award honors individuals who have made significant contributions to the middle market through the publication of works that promote research and higher standards of excellence.


Founded in 2009, this premier award recognizes those in the Private Middle Market Financial community who create and advocate new ideas that add value to the marketplace.

To date, 11 leading professionals have earned the prestigious Middle Market Thought Leader of the Year Award.
