Winner ACQ Magazine - ACQ5 Global Awards

LONDON, 25 July 2013ACQ proudly announced ACQ5 Global Awards 2013 winners today. Conduit Consulting LLC was recognized for the second consecutive year as US Independent Strategic Advisor of the Year and for the first time in the new ACQ5 Global Awards category as Vendor Due Diligence Advisor of the Year.

Since 2008, the ACQ GLOBAL AWARDS have been celebrating achievement, innovation and brilliance in their annual awards. Anybody can make that claim, but ACQ really is different. We boast a legitimately independent nomination process, most importantly, our award winners, are chosen by the industry itself. Every year, we seek their assistance in recognising industry leaders, eminent individuals, exemplary teams and distinguished firms, which we believe represent the benchmark of achievement and best practice in a variety of fields – and every year, we turn to our readers to help as we strive to recognise an ever-widening spectrum of services, markets, industries and organisations that serve our global market place. We believe that by consulting our readers we can better identify the groups that are confronting the issues which face us at this complex juncture, and our awards will rise above the status of participation certificate and actually be an endorsement of their work.
 
With the world battling to return to growth, competition could not be fiercer. The ACQ Global Awards 2013 set out to recognise the achievements of those who are responding most successfully to the demands being placed on them in the new post-recession business environment.
 
Our awards are the only industry honours given purely on the basis of voter participation, and as always, we have welcomed and considered any and all submissions to our nomination process. Hosted by ACQ magazine & the ACQ5 news portal, the Awards are divided into COMPANY, PRACTICE AREA, INDIVIDUAL and FIRM-WIDE categories within the public & private sectors.
 
The ACQ Global Awards 2013 is quite simply the most comprehensive program EVER undertaken by ACQ! We gave the categories to 57,642 of your industry peers and the total number of votes received stood at an amazing 8,762 representing a 15.2% response rate. Guided by the poll’s results our expert panel have selected those firms and individuals that they think had the greatest impact on the industry in your country and discipline in 2012. In judging these awards we have studied the nominations made by our voters and recognize that all of those nominated are leaders in their fields but the exceptional performances of some deserve recognition.
