Why work with a cepa?

Learn more about the importance of having an Certified Exit Planning Advisor on your team.

What is a Certified Exit Planning Advisor®?
An advisor with a CEPA® uses Exit Planning to support business owners. Awarded by the Exit Planning Institute™ this credential assures the business owner that the planning advisor has the knowledge and expertise to strategically support business growth, personal financial plans and personal goals. When working with a CEPA® you can feel confident they have been trained in the Value Acceleration Methodology which can help propel your business to “Best in Class” which allows you to demand a higher multiple when you exit.
What is the CEPA designation?

The Certified Exit Planning Advisor (CEPA) is a unique credential that allows professional advisors to deeply engage with more business owners and help them plan in every aspect of their personal finances.  Whether you are looking to sell or transition out of the business when retirement rolls around, a CEPA can help you plan for a successful transition.

Why is it important?

Many business owners struggle to align their personal finances, only paying attention to business finances.  Having an advisor on your team that possesses the CEPA designation will help owners build more valuable companies, align their financial goals and create a solid personal financial plan that can help you retire with confidence that your financial bases are covered.
