The Northwest Growth Financing Conference announced today that Chase, a wholly owned subsidiary of JP Morgan Chase, has joined with the Association for Corporate Growth – Seattle (ACG Seattle) to present the 2010 conference.
Curtis Fraser, President of Chase – Middle Market Banking – Washington, remarked “Chase is proud to join ACG Seattle in presenting the 2010 Northwest Growth Financing Conference. We are delighted to be part of the dynamic Pacific Northwest business community and look forward to our partnership with the Association for Corporate Growth to help build and support the growth of businesses in the region.”
“We are pleased Chase has decided to partner with ACG Seattle to present the Northwest’s premier conference for financing the growth of ‘middle market’ companies noted Franz von Bradsky, Chairman of the conference; the bank has an impeccable reputation and extensive experience in financing the growth of ‘middle market’ companies and look forward to working with their outstanding professionals.”
The nation’s credit markets are slowly thawing after their unprecedented collapse and the economy appears to be on the mend. The crisis of confidence has abated considerably but still lingers on today as bank lending standards have tightened. Indicative of today’s tight credit conditions is recent Federal Reserve Bank data which indicate bank lending dropped at an epic pace during 2009 with commercial and industrial loans posting the sharpest decline in 67 years.
The conference provides ‘middle market’ business owners and their executive leadership team with an in depth look at the financing options available today as well as insights they will need to successfully navigate today’s rocky financial landscape. The conference will be held at the Bell Harbor Conference Center in Seattle on July 29, 2010.
ACG was founded in 1954 as a forum for corporate leaders to exchange ideas and address pertinent issues related to both internal and external corporate growth. It has grown to more than 12,000 members throughout North America, Europe and Asia. Its mission is to foster and facilitate sound corporate growth –– high quality and rising earnings as well as increased shareholder value. It is the premier global association for senior executives involved in corporate growth, corporate development, and merger and acquisition decisions.
