What the letters mean

I see so many professionals with all these designations after their names and I always wonder what does it all mean? And, more important, why should I care? So, I figured why not let you know.

MBA

The quintessential business degree, the Masters of Business Administration (MBA) is a bridge between Engineer and Business Consultant and gives me a solid grounding in all aspects of business including marketing, finance, accounting, human resources, operations, and more. I obtained an MBA in 2002 from the University of Alberta with a focus on finance and organizational behaviour, and I've been learning ever since.

CEPA

The Certified Exit Planning Advisor (CEPA) designation from the Exit Planning Institute (EPI) equips me with specialized knowledge to help you navigate every stage of a successful business exit and provides me the skills to coordinate advisors you will need to complete the exit process.

PMP

The industry standard in the world of project management, the Project Management Professional (PMP) designation from the Project Management Institute gives me the tools, techniques, and knowledge to lead complex multi-discipline projects, like your exit plan.

P.Eng

The first professional designation I obtained was a Professional Engineer (P. Eng) licence. It stands for the deep responsibilities and ethical standards I've committed to my entire career, the same level of commitment, expertise, ethics, and professionalism I bring to the work with you and your business.
