Oaklins’ expertise acknowledged in food industry award

Davide Milano, one of Oaklins’ food & beverage specialists, has been awarded “M&A Professional of the Year 2017 in the Food Industry” by Financecommunity in recognition of his expertise shown in a number of relevant transactions completed in the sector. During the award ceremony, he was put forward as one of the most prominent professionals in the food industry. His colleague and fellow food specialist Marco Vismara won the award in 2016. Oaklins has closed 91 deals in food & beverage in the past five years. 


“I am honored to receive an award that is the result of intense activity in the food & beverage industry. The award goes to the individual but it’s clearly the result of dedicated teamwork at Oaklins. We are increasingly involved in M&A transactions involving entrepreneurs active in this sector. We are pleased to see more and more Italian entrepreneurs with a proactive attitude towards M&A, so we are not only advising divestments of renowned Italian brands or businesses to foreign investors, who continue to show a hot interest in ‘Food Made in Italy’.”
