Certified Exit Planning Adviser qualification

By , May 12, 2011

CHICAGO, IL— The Exit Planning Institute is proud to announce that Craig West recently earned the Certified Exit Planning Adviser (CEPA) designation after completing the Institute’s intensive CEPA program. Craig joins an exclusive group of fewer than 150 business advisors worldwide who have received this designation and only five Australians.

About the CEPA Program
The CEPA program was specifically designed for business advisors who work closely with owners of privately held companies. Using an executive MBA style format, the program is designed around a central case study and uses a combination of lectures, group discussions, case studies and individual exercises to introduce participants to concepts and to reinforce skills. To receive the CEPA designation, Craig completed a rigorous 5 day program that involved approximately 100 hours of pre-course study, 32 hours of class room instruction, and successful completion of a 3.5 hour proctored examination.

Craig West is a strategic accountant who has over 20 years’ experience advising business owners. His background as a CPA in public practice, provided invaluable experience in the key issues of concern to business owners. Following 6 years of study to gain two masters degrees, Craig focused on Capital Gains Tax (CGT) for business sales advising on strategic management of tax issues. This experience formed a very strong view that business owners (and often their advisers) were unprepared and unaware of the steps required to prepare a business for exit.

Craig now acts as a strategic mentor for mid-market business owners and has written four critically acclaimed books on employee incentives, succession planning, asset protection and exit strategies. Craig has conducted numerous seminars and keynote presentations throughout Australia & internationally, including adviser education programs for the Institute of Chartered Accountants and CPA Australia.
