Alison Levine, New York Times Bestselling Author

SALT LAKE CITY, Jan. 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Utah is home to many lofty mountains, both literal and figurative. Outdoor enthusiasts flock to Utah to enjoy its stately, snowy peaks, while businesses come here to climb to professional heights. Utah's talented, well-educated workforce and innovative leaders make it an ideal place to begin an ascent. Meanwhile, private capital can invest in the Utah opportunity, and established businesses can climb to greater pinnacles of success.

The 2016 ACG Utah Intermountain Growth Conference will be held at the Salt Lake Marriott City Center on Tuesday, March 1, 2016. Alison Levine, Team Captain of the First American Women's Everest Expedition, and Author of the New York Times Bestseller On the Edge: The Art of High-Impact Leadership, will be the keynote speaker.

In addition to being a best-selling author, Levine has climbed the highest peak on every continent and skied across the Arctic Circle to the geographic North Pole. She spent four years as an adjunct professor at the United States Military Academy at West Point, with a focus on leadership in extreme environments. Her unique experiences have taught her many lessons that will be shared at the conference.

Now in its 13th year, the ACG Utah Intermountain Growth Conference is the only conference that connects private equity groups with middle market businesses and the intermediaries who work with them across the Intermountain West. More than 30% of the attendees represent the best and fastest-growing companies from the region, and all participants at this event are assured the opportunity to network, exchange ideas, and build relationships.

In addition to the conference, The DealSource Lounge and an ACG Capital Connection® will be featured. DealSource offers Private Equity Groups and Intermediaries active in the intermountain region a great opportunity to spend an afternoon interacting with the best deal-sourcing professionals in the West. Capital Connection® will be held during the cocktail reception and buffet dinner starting at 5:00 pm, which is always a tremendous networking event.

If you are interested in adding some winter recreation and maximizing your networking opportunities, the Intermountain ACG Capital Connection® is the opening day of the 7th Annual ACG Western Ski and Board Conference on Wednesday, March 2, 2016.
