Valuation expert Travis Flenniken, CFA, CVA, with Henderson Hutcherson & McCullough, PLLC, has successfully completed the certification process with the National Association of Certified Valuators and Analysts to earn the Certified Valuation Analyst credential. The CVA credential is granted only to qualified individuals with considerable professional experience in the field of business valuation.
“The CVA designation is an indication to the business, professional and legal communities that recipients have met NACVA’s rigorous standards of professionalism, expertise, objectivity and integrity in the field of business valuation, financial consulting and related consulting disciplines,” said Parnell Black, MBA, CPA, CVA and CEO of NACVA.
“NACVA’s CVA designation is the only valuation credential accredited by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies, the accreditation body of the Institute for Credentialing Excellence,” Mr. Black said.
To become accredited by NACVA, the candidate is required to successfully complete an intensive training and testing process. An initial requirement to becoming a CVA is that the applicant either be a licensed Certified Public Accountant holding an active, valid and unrevoked CPA license in his or her state, or hold a business degree and/or an MBA, or higher business degree, from an accredited college or university. Further, those without a CPA license must have two years or more of full-time or equivalent experience in business valuation and related disciplines. Those who have earned the CVA credential must be recertified every three years in order to maintain their credential.
