The merger that brought The Stanley Works and Black & Decker together provides a wonderful template to discuss how M&A remains an important element in corporate growth strategies, both for large and small companies.

At its October 4th business meeting, the Connecticut Chapter of the Association for Corporate Growth (ACG CT) will present Corbin Walburger, Vice President of Business Development at Stanley Black & Decker, Inc., as he tells Connecticut’s deal-making community how two great American companies successfully merged in 2010.

ACG CT President Karin (McKittrick) Kovacic said, “The merger that brought The Stanley Works and Black & Decker together provides a wonderful template to discuss how M&A remains an important element in corporate growth strategies, both for large and small companies.”

Mr. Walburger joined Stanley in June 2008, after spending a decade at Goldman, Sachs & Co. in investment banking positions of increasing responsibility. He graduated summa cum laude from the University of California at San Diego in 1995 and received a Masters of Business Administration from the Stanford Graduate School of Business in 1999.

Headquartered in New Britain, CT, Stanley Black & Decker is a diversified global provider of hand tools, power tools and related accessories, mechanical access solutions and electronic security solutions, engineered fastening systems, and more.
