Congratulations Lisa Riley on becoming a CM&AP

Business Sales and M&A Specialists

Congratulations to Lisa Riley for becoming a Certified Mergers & Acquisitions Professional. This will give her an even great understanding of Mergers and Acquisitions.


Competitive forces in the global economy have rendered mergers and acquisitions (M&A) an essential tool for companies to manage growth and maximize shareholder value. In addition, the unprecedented arsenal of cash on corporate balance sheets and in private equity funds continues to fuel substantial M&A opportunities for companies of all sizes and different ownership structures.

The Certified Mergers & Acquisitions Professional (CM&AP) Program from the Coles College of Business’s M&A Academy provides participants with the analytical and business tools needed to manage successful M&A transactions from strategy assessment to valuation, diligence, negotiations, and execution. It is ideal for M&A intermediaries and other professionals, as well as senior management and business owners of the companies they serve.
