On March 22nd, U.S. Black Chambers, Inc. hosted its first quarter Presidents Circle Salon dinner in partnership with Wells Fargo at the Salamander DC. The invite-only dinner convened 35 hand-selected entrepreneurs, subject matter experts and industry thought leaders to discuss how to use mergers and acquisitions as a tool to scale Black businesses and build wealth in Black communities.

The event was led by USBC CEO Ron Busby, Sr. and USBC President’s Circle Co-Chair Antwanye Ford, who also serves as CEO of Enlightened, and featured Bruce McDonald, Managing Director of Wells Fargo Corporate & Investment Banking as an M&A subject matter expert.

“This dinner was about hosting a mastermind on mergers and acquisitions for Black business owners,” said Ron Busby. “We were able to confidentially explore ways that M&A can be used as a strategy not only for growth but also wealth creation.”

The USBC President’s Circle Salon Dinner is a quarterly dinner series designed to bring together the top minds in business and leaders of the largest Black-owned enterprises. The dinners serve two purposes: fostering community among Black CEOs and discussing best practices for scaling Black-owned companies and increasing profitability.
