A business intermediary or investment banker, forensic financial litigation professional, business valuation specialist, fraud deterrence analyst or a fraud examiner must be able to demonstrate utmost competence to their clients and relevant third parties through education, training and experience. Of utmost importance are professional credentials that recognize the holder's commitment to excellence through mastery of the subject matter. In addition to all being CPAs, the Vineyard Group professional staff have earned other specialized professional designations: Certified Forensic Financial Analyst (CFFA), Certified Valuation Analyst (CVA), Certified Fraud Examiner (CFE), Business Valuator Accredited for Litigation (BVAL) and Certified Merger and Acquisition Professional (CMAP). In order to earn these credentials, each candidate must undergo a rigorous training program, pass a comprehensive written examination and case study and to maintain the designations, each professional must meet the significant continuing education and experience requirements mandated by each organization.
We are proud of our Professional Service Team and their experience, expertise and accomplishments and we strongly feel that the professional certifications that we have earned and maintain are clear evidence of our commitment to excellence and add value to each Vineyard Group client.
