What: Managing partner
DeSilva & Phillips
Although the M&A marketplace has been challenged by the credit crunch, DeSilva & Phillips represented sellers in a number of business media transactions this year: In February alone, the firm closed three deals: the sale of CBI Research Inc. to Advanstar Communica-tions, the sale of Ascend Media's Health-care division to Intellisphere, and the sale of Virgo Publishing to Arlington Capital Partners. In March, Answerology, a question-and-answer platform represented by DeSilva & Phillips, was sold to Hearst Maga-zines. In September, the Winner's Circle Organization, a co-producer of conferences and a consulting firm, was sold to Dow Jones' Barron's.
