Featured Managing Director: Rahul Aggarwal

Deal activity in the western region of the country is driven by those with their sights set on expansion, reports M&A Advisor’sAlerts newsletter. Says Rahul Aggarwal, a 2012 40 Under 40 West Award winner and Managing Director at Brentwood Associates, “Our firm has been quite busy and active in 2012. We’ve been working on a variety of transactions, including new platform companies, acquisitions by existing portfolio companies and divestitures in the consumer industry.”Drive and dedication requires a passion for deal closure that is exemplified in the young dealmakers being awarded. According to Aggarwal, “One of the most gratifying aspects of being in the private equity business is working side-by-side with companies to help them grow and create new opportunities for people. I enjoy taking ideas and capital and working with great people to turn ideas into real accomplishments.”
