Churchill Asset Management (“Churchill”) today announced that it has been recognized as “USA Lender of the Year” at the USA M&A Atlas Awards. Presented by the Global M&A Network, the awards honor outstanding firms, dealmakers and value-creating transactions from M&A communities across the United States.

“Churchill represents the very best of the M&A industry and earned this honor by standing out in a group of very impressive finalists,” said Shanta Kumari, CEO and Group Editor, Global M&A Network. “The firm’s lending activity in 2018, the strongest year in its history, was a key contributing factor to being selected as winner.”

Churchill’s reputation and long history as a trusted financing partner to leading middle market private equity firms and the scale of its investment platform, with over $6.5 billion in committed capital under management, led the firm to a new annual investment record of more than $2.6 billion in 51 new transactions during 2018. The firm is on track for another strong year in 2019, having closed and/or committed to over $1.6 billion in 28 new investments in the first half of 2019 (an increase of nearly 30% from the same period in 2018).

“We are very honored to receive this award, which we view as a recognition of the breadth and scale of our platform and the strong partnership approach we employ with our private equity sponsors,” said Ken Kencel, President & Chief Executive Officer of Churchill. “We look forward to continuing to provide our private equity clients with consistent, responsive and creative financing solutions while serving the goals of our investors, which include TIAA and other leading institutional investors and family offices throughout the world.” 

Award recipients were judged independently by a point-indexed scoring system based on notable transactions, expertise, track record, leadership and client service. Winners were honored at an awards gala in Washington, DC on July 11, 2019.
