SALT LAKE CITY (March 15, 2013) - Amy Rees Anderson, former CEO of MediConnect Global, has been named the Dealmaker of the Year by the Utah Chapter of the Association for Corporate Growth (ACG). Notably, Anderson is the first female executive to receive this prestigious award. After leaving MediConnect in October 2012, Anderson founded REES Capital, a mentor capital and angel investing firm.
The ACG Dealmaker of the Year award recognizes the top corporate executive in the state of Utah who has demonstrated substantial success in accomplishing growth-oriented transactions. Anderson led MediConnect Global - one of the largest cloud-based health information exchanges - for nearly nine years, which she sold to Verisk Analytics in March 2012 for just over $377 million. Under her direction, the company grew revenues by more than 1,500 percent since 2004 and employed more than 1,000 people worldwide.
"To receive this recognition from such a respected and prestigious organization as ACG is truly an honor," said Anderson. "Certainly no one can succeed in business without the help and support of a great team, and I was fortunate to have the very best people at MediConnect Global. I have also had incredible mentors throughout my professional career, and that is what inspired me to launch my newest venture, REES Capital. I am excited for the opportunity to pay it forward by helping to mentor others the way so many have helped me."
Anderson launched REES (Recognizing and Empowering Entrepreneurial Success) Capital to provide entrepreneurs and business executives critical guidance and support to help their companies grow. In addition to seeking out opportunities for potential equity investments, REES Capital provides expert mentoring and consulting services across a broad range of business functions, including leadership training; product and market assessment; marketing, sales and public relations strategy; financial modeling; organizational structuring; strategic planning; acquisition and exit strategy; and other key areas.
Anderson was presented with the Dealmaker of the Year Award at a March 14 awards ceremony during the annual ACG Utah Intermountain Growth Conference at the Grand America Hotel in Salt Lake City.
