Press release from the issuing company

Scottsdale, Ariz. – Corporate Development Associates (“CDA”) today announced the promotion of business forms industry veteran Roger Buck to Managing Director of its St. Louis office. Roger has worked for many of the leading companies in the business forms industry including The Flesh Company, Ward/Kraft, Perfection Forms and Continuous Forms & Checks. Roger began his career in the printing industry with Ace Forms in 1971.

Jim Anderson CDA's Founder & President stated: “We are delighted to announce the promotion of Roger Buck to Managing Director of our St. Louis, MO office. Roger is one third of our deal-making team which also includes Stuart Boyar in Rochester, NY. Roger joined CDA in June 2017 and has in short order learned to be a great dealmaker and bring not only a fresh look to CDA, but add his absolutely incredible base of contacts. I knew he would be successful!”

Roger Buck stated: “It’s hard to think it’s been three years since joining CDA. My background in manufacturing and working with print distributors has been a tremendous advantage as me as it helps me find the right fit for buyers and sellers. The industry continues to shift and growth through acquisition will continue to be a key factor for many companies. Likewise, more and more company owners are looking at thoughtful exit planning as opposed to knee-jerk reactions to market changes. I’m looking forward to several more years working with Jim and Stuart to help our merger and acquisition clients.”
