It was a big week for Bowman Consulting Group! This fast-growing firm announced two impressive acquisitions in the West and Southwest. We were privileged to serve as the advisor to both firms that Bowman acquired. We wish congratulations to all the teams involved and know that both acquisitions will create even more value for clients, employees, and shareholders. In other news, this week we report a total of seven domestic deals announced in CA, NM, IL, PA, and FL. Overseas we report two new transactions in Germany and the UK.
We wish all our readers a Happy Thanksgiving. The M&A Update team will be taking next week off. We will see you all again on Friday, December 1.
