Erin Henseler, manager at CLA in Minneapolis, was named a winner in the service professional category of the M&A Advisor’s Emerging Leaders Awards.

The M&A Advisor, renowned globally for its recognition of leading M&A, financing, and turnaround professionals, created the award program to promote mentorship and professional development amongst emerging business leaders.

This is the seventh consecutive year that a CLA professional has received this award. Henseler was chosen from a pool of international nominees by an independent judging panel of distinguished business leaders. She will accept the award in person at the 2019 Emerging Leaders Awards Program and Summit on September 17, 2019.

Henseler was one of the earliest members of CLA’s private equity and transaction advisory team and has overseen hundreds of transactions in her career. She has served as the primary financial diligence lead on more than 50 transactions and is spearheading the team’s growth in the Minneapolis market.

Craig Arends, managing principal for private equity, says, “Erin has taken a leading role in growing CLA’s transaction advisory services. She creates opportunities for her clients by getting to know them and offering elevated services, for her teammates by helping them develop professionally, and for her community by getting involved with Junior Achievement.”

Henseler helped develop the reporting processes used by the CLA team today, and has been instrumental in helping recruit and train new team members. Her accomplishments include: improving processes and deliverables, creating learning and development content, and presenting at transaction services training conferences.
