Past Issues: 40 Under Forty—First Quarter 2015

NACVA Association News

By Tim Hulst, Project Management Specialist

The 2014 honorees were a diverse group of professionals encompassing a varied and diverse section of professions. The industries represented in the group include Business Valuation, Financial Forensics, Litigation consulting, Expert Witnesses, Mergers and Acquisitions, Exit Planning, Healthcare Valuation, and other related fields. A number of the honorees have been given opportunity to participate in various roles in NACVA and the CTI–from credentialing boards, webinar presenters, classroom instructors, co-chairing symposiums, to being an Annual Consultants’ Conference co-chair. NACVA and the CTI are extremely proud of the 2014 honorees and all the contributions that they have made to their professions and communities. We also look forward to seeing what they will do in 2015 and into the future. Take a moment to view the 2014 honorees and their accomplishments by following this link.

NACVA and the CTI are founded on excellence, superior quality, and the spirit of pioneering. We have a rich history of partnering with visionary leaders across all spectrums of the accounting and financial consulting professions regardless of affiliation with NACVA and the CTI. Simply put, we want the best of the best among our group of subject matter experts and leaders.

NACVA and the CTI have the capability to select the who’s who as we see it, but that would be a disservice to NACVA, the CTI, and the industries that we cater to as we are not “in the trenches” every day. The best way to find out who are the top players driving the industries is to simply ask those who are working with these industry innovators every day, our members, for the nominations. Driven by the conviction to “give voice and opportunity to the next generation of industry mavericks” we also opened the promotion to everyone—we did not want to miss a single person who deserves to be noticed and commended for their hard work, so nominations were opened to all. Nominees do not need to be affiliated with NACVA or the CTI to qualify.

The inaugural 40 Under Forty campaign was a great success and NACVA and the CTI are proud to announce that submissions are currently being accepted for 2015. We look forward to having another great group of nominees to fill the forty honoree slots.

The selected individuals will be showcased at the 2015 Annual Consultants’ Conference in New Orleans, LA, June 24–27, 2015. They will also be featured in the NACVA publications: The Value Examiner®, QuickReadBuzz Blog, weekly QuickRead e-newsletter, and this publication (Association News). The will also be profiled on the NACVA and the CTI’s website with a brief description of their accomplishments and bios.

The top forty will be selected by NACVA’s governance boards and Salt Lake City Headquarters’ executive staff, with four of the honorees receiving free registration to the 2015 Annual Consultants’ Conference in New Orleans, LA, including two night’s hotel accommodations and coach airfare. The remaining 36 honorees will receive a greatly discounted attendance package to attend the annual conference.

NACVA and the CTI hope that all nominees, selected honorees, and the top 4 honorees will be able to attend the annual conference in order to for them to network with the established all-stars of the profession and for the established all-stars to network with them. The networking between the two will lead to the innovation needed to continue driving the success of the various professional consulting fields supported by NACVA and the CTI.

If you know one of these industry mavericks please take a moment of your time and nominate them by visiting https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/2015-40UnderForty. Submission deadline is March 31, 2015.
