I think, depending on the regular level of M&A activity within the specific company, every medium and large-sized company should have at least one person dedicated to M&A. Ideally, if the company is not as active within M&As, the M&A manager could also cover another financial role within the company. Then, when the timing is deemed right, the company will have at least one internal M&A expert that has executed deals before and know exactly what pitfalls to look for in a potential deal. Also, an internal M&A expert has a better chance at evaluating if a potential buyer will fit strategically and culturally with his organization, and he can use this knowledge to act as a sparring partner to an external M&A advisor.
