Recognizing Outstanding Contributions to the Association

The following awards are presented annually to individuals who play a significant role in growing and shaping our organization.

Darrell Fouts Award

The M&A Source was founded in 1992 by Darrell Fouts, under the guidance of Tom West, founder of the IBBA. Before the association, Darrell led IBBA courses to help Main Street brokers make the transition to larger transactions. In 2001, the association established an award in his name to recognize and honor the selfless vision and leadership he generously gave to the profession. The Darrell Fouts Award is a prestigious award given to M&A Source members who have made outstanding contributions to the association. Those who are considered for this award display visionary leadership or accomplishments that uplift and expand our vision or the profession.
