AUSTIN, TEXAS, JUNE 26, 2018 – The M&A Advisor announced the winners of the Emerging Leaders Awards on Tuesday, June 26th.

CrowdOut Capital CEO Alexander Schoenbaum is one of the M&A Advisor’s 2018 Emerging Leaders.

Based in Austin, Texas, CrowdOut is the first online marketplace for short-term lending for the lower middle-market companies with revenue from $5 to $500 million. CrowdOut provides the flexibility and efficiency for companies to avoid the rigid processes and structures of traditional funding, where long-term lock-ins, minimal loan size and interest rate adjustments made loans onerous and ultimately stunted the growth opportunities for these companies.

“This award is a great honor to me personally, but even more as a recognition of CrowdOut’s great team and successes. I am proud of our organization and the change we are bringing to traditional private debt,” said Alexander Schoenbaum, CEO of CrowdOut Capital.

The M&A Advisor, renowned globally for its recognition of leading M&A, financing and turnaround professionals, created this event to promote mentorship and professional development amongst the emerging business leaders.

“The Annual M&A Advisor Emerging Leaders Awards was born as the 40 Under 40 Awards in the United States in 2010 to recognize and celebrate the achievements of young M&A, Financing and Turnaround professionals who had reached a significant level of success and made a notable contribution to their industry and community. With the expansion of the Emerging Leaders program to the United Kingdom, and Europe in 2016, the 2018 US award winners join a truly global network of outstanding young professionals,” said David Fergusson, President and Co-CEO of The M&A Advisor.
