Carter Morse & Goodrich ("CMG") is proud to announce that it was named winner of the “Private Equity Deal of the Year” award at the U.S.A Middle Market M&A Atlas Awards for the acquisition of Resident Essentials by WILsquare. Global M&A Network honored the winners of the 5th Annual USA M&A Awards at the privately hosted gala and dinner ceremony in Washington D.C., returning to the Mayflower Hotel.

"On behalf of the entire team at Carter Morse & Goodrich, we are deeply honored and grateful to receive the "Private Equity Deal of the Year" award at the U.S.A Middle Market M&A Atlas Awards.  

CMG worked closely with the Company and its owner through a volatile, COVID-impacted M&A market which included pausing the initial marketing process to allow for performance to stabilize.  Within one year, and supported by continued strong results, our client received numerous offers which were materially improved from the original process.   This recognition is a testament to the hard work, dedication, and commitment of our team to delivering exceptional advice and results for our clients.

I would like to express my gratitude to Global M&A Network as we are truly humbled to be recognized among such a talented and accomplished group of M&A advisors." said Michael Carter, Managing Partner at CMG.
