Industry Leader

“Industry Leader”

How to Use It:
There’s only one step to become an industry leader: declare yourself an industry leader.

Managing Director: Objective league tables show we’re the uncontested industry leaders in cross border Vietnamese M&A deals between the sizes of $47M and $175M.
Client: How many deals meeting this criteria were there?
Managing Director: [Turns head to analyst]
Analyst: One.
Managing Director: [Turns head back to client] And we were the best.
