Washington, DC (September 24, 2020) – The senior leadership from Gryphon Technologies, an AE Industrial Partners platform company, has been named the 2020 Private Company Deal Team of the Year by ACG National Capital, the region’s preeminent association for corporate professionals with a focus on M&A within the middle market.

ACG National Capital presented Gryphon with the 2020 Private Company Deal Team of the Year award during a virtual “Gala” on September 2, 2020, as of part its 2020 Corporate Growth Awards, which recognized business achievements and deals during the 2019 calendar year – a year in which Washington, DC was once again ranked the top economy in the U.S. by Business Insider.

Gryphon was recognized for acquiring and integrating three companies during 2019: its purchase of Schafer Inc. from Belcan; acquisition of the assets of PGFM; and its purchase of OMNITEC Solutions.

“We are excited about these strategic acquisitions because they enhance our transformational capability in digital engineering, cybersecurity, cloud services and predictive analytics while broadening our customer base.

“The national capital region has been home to one of the fastest growing and most prosperous business communities in America for many years running,” said Don Irwin, the 2020 Corporate Growth Awards Committee Chair and a Managing Director and Banker Team Leader at J.P. Morgan Private Bank. “2019 was an incredible year for corporate growth and deal flow in our region, with a number of high-profile deals ranging from strategic acquisitions to high profile initial public offerings. We’re honored to acknowledge and celebrate the companies, dealmakers, and executives that are playing a vital role in our thriving business community.”
