Habif, Arogeti & Wynne, LLP, the largest Georgia-headquartered tax, accounting and business consulting firm, announced today that Howard Zandman, partner in the Firm’s Forensic Accounting & Litigation Support group, has been elected Chair of the Executive Advisory Board for the National Association of Certified Valuators and Analysts™ (NACVA®) for a one-year term beginning June 2013.

The Executive Advisory Board serves to provide counsel to the leadership of NACVA, as well as support to four other Boards that assist in governing affairs of the Association. Howard was elected as Chair by a unanimous vote of the Executive Advisory Board members. As Chair, Howard will ensure that the Association’s initiatives are implemented throughout the year, run Board meetings, and provide advice to Association officers as issues arise.

Howard has been a member of NACVA since 2003 and has served on and chaired the Litigation Forensics Board, co-chaired the Annual Conference Committee, and has spent the past two years as a member of the Executive Advisory Board that he will now lead.

Through the years, Howard has developed and taught a number of courses for NACVA on financial forensics, including lost profits and business interruption damages. He has also role-played as opposing counsel in NACVA’s Expert Witness Bootcamp where attendees participate in an actual trial setting involving financial testimony. In addition, he played an instrumental role in developing the Cornerstones of Financial Forensics course that prepares professionals for the Certified in Financial Forensics (CFF®) certification offered by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants® (AICPA®).

“Howard has been involved for the past 10 years in NACVA and will bring a level of commitment and drive to propel the organization forward,” said Richard Kopelman, CEO and Managing Partner at HA&W. “He is well-connected within NACVA and through his dedication will make a positive difference.”

NACVA is the accrediting organization for the Certified Valuation Analysts® (CVA®) designation. As an association, the organization supports the users of business and intangible asset valuation and financial forensic services, including economic damages determinations of all kinds and fraud detection and prevention. The association provides training and certification for financial professionals in these disciplines, i.e., the Certified Forensic Financial Analyst™ (CFFA™).
