Alan C. Young and Associates in Detroit, one the country’s largest minority-owned certified public accounting firms, and Van Conway and Partners, a boutique financial advisory and business consulting firm in Birmingham, have formed a joint venture called Young Conway Group (YCG).
The new firm is a certified minority business enterprise that provides a full suite of financial services, including turnaround and restructuring, dispute resolution and investigations, merger and acquisition advisory, litigation support/expert witness services, transaction services, valuation advisory, enterprise profit improvements, fiduciary services, and capital formation and debt services.
“Van is a longtime business colleague and friend and is nationally recognized as one of the leading experts in financial and turnaround management consulting,” says Alan C. Young chairman and CEO of the new business. “As a combined firm, we have expanded the scope of services and depth of expertise we bring to the marketplace as we navigate this crucial era in which virtually every industry is experiencing rapid change.”
YCG will focus on providing services to clients in the automotive industry, higher education industry, government and municipal sectors, public and private business sectors, the banking industry, and the legal profession.
“I’m equally pleased to have joined with Alan in this new enterprise. Alan and I believe strongly in diversity of background, experience, opinions, and views as the best path to a sustainable business and client trust in our work,” says Van E. Conway, president of the new firm.
“Our combined vision is to be the leading national minority-owned financial advisory and business consultancy firm (that will be) as unique and diverse as the clients we serve. We have the opportunity to transform lives, businesses, and communities through the power of personal relationships and professional advice.”
