Elk Grove Village, IL (PRWEB) September 8, 2009
Porte Brown LLC (http://www.portebrown.com), a Chicago area accounting firm, has announced that three of its staff members have recently earned CCIFP certification. With a total of four CCIFP certified professionals on staff, Porte Brown is among an elite category of CPA firms that can provide specialized accounting and financial management services to the construction industry.
Joe Gleba, CPA, Partner, Genevra Knight, CPA, Manager and Randy Ellis, CPA, Senior Accountant, have all earned CCIFP certification after successfully completing a rigorous exam and fulfilling the education, experience, and ethical requirements of the Institute of Certified Construction Industry Financial Professionals (ICCIFP).
According to Russell J. Wilson, CPA, CCIFP and Partner at the Chicago area accounting firm of Porte Brown, "We're proud of the time and effort our staff has put into achieving one of the highest levels of certification for accountants in the construction industry. It's a level of industry-specific expertise that the average accounting firm simply can't provide." Mr. Wilson himself was certified in 2008 which, at the time, put him in a very select group of less than 500 people in the nation that had earned CCIFP certification.
Mr. Wilson adds, "With over 120 construction clients here at Porte Brown, it's important that our staff has the specialized training necessary to provide the highest standard of accounting services and best practices in the construction industry. Because of these CCIFP certifications, we can deliver on that commitment and provide guidance in areas such as project management, safety issues, human resources, IT, and legal issues pertaining to the construction industry.
