The 40 Under Forty program was initiated to shine a spotlight on industry leaders who have managed to not only be professionally successful, but have contributed to their professions and communities. The honor is also a direct recognition of being the best of the best with a bright future ahead of them.
According to an article published by the Chicago Tribune, the National Association of Certified Valuators and Analysts and the Consultants’ Training Institute cull a range of industries looking for young professionals who have shown exceptional and influential acumen which resulted in notable advances in everything from financial forensics to business valuations. This year they found over 125 nominees that met the criteria before weaning it down to the top 40. Besides Anthony Marsala, other honorees include Leah Feldman, a family services advocate, Dr. Christopher St. Germain, a
clinical psychologist, and Jessica Glass, a lawyer at McCabe & Mack, LLP.
Marsala is a co-founder of Madison Street Capital and has been noted for his leadership and management of the firm’s growth and presence in Africa, Europe and Asia. He also spearheaded the firm’s due diligence and analytical teams through a series of prominent business valuations.
Headquartered in Chicago, Madison Street Capital has grown into a major investment banking firm under CEO Charles Botchway. They provide financial opinions to corporate entities and partner with middle market firms to help them with complex transactions. Under Marsala’s leadership, Madison Street Capital has also been lauded for its contributions in helping clients navigate industry verticals and reaching forecasted business goals. Madison Street Capital has offices in Asia, Africa and North America.
Marsala studied at Loyola University and the University of Oxford. He spent four years with Director of Strategic Analytical Services at Advisory & Intermediary Services, LLC before moving to Senior Managing Director and Principal at Houlihan Smith & Company, Inc. before launching Madison Street Capital in 2005. Marsala is a member of the National Association of Certified Valuators and Analysts, as well as a member of the American Society of Appraisers.
