Six KatzAbosch CPAs Earn Prominent Construction Industry Designation March 28, 2012 KatzAbosch, one of the region’s leading certified public accounting, tax and consulting firms, is proud to announce that six more of our Certified Public Accountants: Michael Gentry, Terry Grant, Kent Thomas, Chris Clingerman, Anita Sheckells and Kristin Bailey have recently earned the Certified Construction Auditor (CCA) designation from the National Association of Construction Auditors (NACA), bringing the total number of CCAs employed with KatzAbosch to seven, including Claudia Wolter who earned her designation in 2011. The National Association of Construction Auditors was created to enhance the control environment related to construction projects. Providing the professional Certified Construction Auditor (CCA) designation helps to instill confidence in employers and clients when they secure the services of a professional construction auditor. In addition to the CCA designation, 6 of KatzAbosch’s Certified Public Accountants also hold the designation of Certified Construction Industry Financial Professional (CCIFP). This distinction shows an individual has met the highest standards of construction financial management. There are less than 20 CCIFPs in the state of Maryland and only 700 in the United States. KatzAbosch is also the only member of The Construction Industry CPAs/Consultants Association (CICPAC) in the state of Maryland. CICPAC is a national association of CPA firms recognized by their respective markets for providing high quality financial and consulting services to over 6,000 construction entities. Each firm is the exclusive member in its area and must demonstrate proficiency in construction industry services and a reputation for high-quality work and integrity. Through CICPAC’s educational programs and the continuous exchange of ideas and information, members of CICPAC are able to stay at the forefront of the construction industry, allowing them to provide up-to-date services to their clients.
