Rowan sponsor 25th Dealmaker Awards 2019 – 1 week to go…

For the fifth year, Rowan are delighted to be sponsoring the North West Dealmakers Awards which is celebrating its 25th year.

This event has come to be the biggest date in the region’s corporate finance calendar and on its anniversary it is sure to be bigger than ever. The Dealmakers Awards are the premier event of its kind. Up to 1,000 people attend each year, some of the biggest names in the professional and financial services sector celebrating their own success and the successes of the region. Taking place at Manchester Central on Thursday 24 October, the night shows what this community can really do and acknowledges excellence. The Dealmakers Awards reward the efforts of people in the corporate finance field who are at the very top of their game. So once again, in addition to the rigorous judging process and canvassing the opinions of a wide circle of dealmakers and former winners the best of the best will be crowned as the rightful winners on the night.
