TROY, MICHIGAN – The Alliance of Merger & Acquisition Advisors® (AM&AA) has conferred “Certified Merger & Acquisition Advisor® (CM&AA) certification upon Claudio Calado, Director at Doeren Mayhew, Troy-based certified public accounting and management consulting firm. Mr.Calado is one of an elite group of over 375 experienced corporate financial advisors worldwide to have earned the CM&AA certification. The CM&AA designation serves to distinguish those individuals who have mastered a comprehensive body of essential knowledge and also have committed to staying abreast of continuing new developments in the M&A profession.
“Achieving CM&AA certification has been enormously rewarding” commented Mr. Calado. “As a mergers and acquisitions advisor, I’ve been advising clients with their corporate finance, strategic, and merger and acquisition needs for years. But pursuing CM&AA certification advanced my skills – and my ability to help clients with transaction advisory needs – to a new level.” Claudio, who has been with Doeren Mayhew for six years, went on to say that the firm’s support of his pursuit of CM&AA certification grew out of the commitment to help private business owners improve business value and increase their personal wealth.
The Alliance of Merger & Acquisition Advisors® initiated the CM&AA program to develop an essential standard of excellence for middle market corporate financial advisory. “To achieve our goals,” noted Michael Nall, Executive Director of AM&AA, “we’ve created a practical, relevant, and comprehensive professional development program that builds on the previously existing skills. This advanced credential provides an important ‘gold standard’ to assist the client in selecting the best advisor. Moreover, we’ve established extremely high professional and ethical requirements to insure the integrity of the CM&AA designation. For the first time ever, owners of privately held companies now have a key benchmark of competency for help with critical ‘once in a lifetime’ kinds of decisions.”
