The notice of these six new assignments comes on the heels of Ahern‘˜s most recent announcement documenting their historic and record setting pace through the first three quarters of 2012 which has Ahern and his staff positioned as true industry market-makers.  

The following are actual open acquisition needs from well known transportation industry clients who wish to move quickly and have closed deals in place by year-end or by the first quarter of 2013:
