CHICAGO, Sept. 27, 2018 - The Association for Corporate Growth (ACG), the global organization focused on driving middle-market growth held its first board meeting this month, since adding ten new board members and new executive officers to the Global Board of Directors.

Angela MacPhee, CEO of RGL Forensics and a member of ACG Denver, will lead ACG Global Board of Directors in 2018-2019. MacPhee most recently served as the board Vice-Chairman and succeeds the 2017-2018 Chairman J.B. Dollison, of Crutchfield Capital and a member of ACG Houston. MacPhee’s leadership experience through for-profit and not-for-profit organizations primed her for this role.

“The next year will be particularly exciting with the addition of ten new members who bring a breadth of new experiences, a diverse range of geographies, professions, and perspectives,” said MacPhee. “ACG members have an unwavering commitment to driving growth. I’m honored to be part of this robust middle market ecosystem, and I’m humbled to be leading ACG.”

ACG’s Global Board is comprised of 27 members, including five officers and 22 directors. Directors are nominated by their peers or their chapters, vetted by the nomination committee, and serve three-year terms.

Dollison, who will serve as a member of the board’s executive committee as ACG’s Immediate Past Chairman, said, “I am proud of ACG’s collective efforts that supported tax reform. Our steadfast commitment to inform the public and policymakers through GrowthEconomy.org, and continued advocacy, helps more and more people understand how the middle market is an integral driver of economic and job growth.”

Also serving on the ACG’s executive committee are Martin Okner, President and COO of dpHUE and a member of ACG New York, who will serve as Vice Chairman; Brent Baxter, Managing Partner of Clayton Capital Partners and a member of ACG St. Louis, who will continue to serve as the Chairman of Finance; and Steve Castino, a Partner of Vestal & Wiler and a member of ACG Orlando, who will serve as the Corporate Secretary. Additionally, John Connery, Shareholder of Hill Ward Henderson and a member of ACG Tampa Bay, Andrew Apfelberg, Partner of Greenberg Glusker and a member of ACG Los Angeles, and Jeff Noland, the Co-Founder and COO/CFO of DartPoints, LLC and a member of ACG Dallas, complete the 2018 – 2019 Executive Committee.

Of leading this powerful professional network, MacPhee said, “ACG continues to be an important network where we have found trusted advisors that have helped us drive growth and who have recently advised us through a transaction of our own.” RGL Forensics recently announced a strategic merger with Baker Tilly.

MacPhee added that the most important goal in the coming year is the adoption and execution of a new strategic plan. “For more than a decade our strategic plan has served as a compass for board strategy and ACG Global’s operations. As a board, it’s our responsibility to ensure the plan’s intent is realized.”
