ACG Detroit, a nonprofit business organization of private equity firms, corporations, and lenders that invest in middle-market companies, will host the Great Lakes Capital Connection Sept. 4-6 at Detroit’s Cobo Center.
Now in its 11th year, the conference is a collaboration among seven ACG chapters from the Midwest and Mid-Atlantic regions. The program includes an opening reception, networking breakfasts, keynote addresses, panel discussions, presentations, a Detroit block party, and more.
Speakers will include Jay Farner, CEO of Quicken Loans; Dug Song, vice president and general manager of Duo Security; Jessica Robinson, executive director of the Michigan Mobility Institute; and Ellen Clark, managing director of Greenwich Capital Group.
“This is an exciting time for our organization and our city,” says Christopher Letts, chapter president for ACG Detroit. “As ACG Detroit continues to experience tremendous growth as a chapter, we are thrilled to welcome our friends and colleagues from throughout the region to the city of Detroit to experience its vibrant, youthful, energy-rich culture.
“Each year, the Great Lakes Capital Connection serves as the professional development opportunity and a launchpad for deal-making across all industries. We expect this year’s conference to be no different.”
