The International Society of Business Analysts (ISBA) has launched its exclusive "Business Valuation Gold Seal of Trust" award of excellence. ISBA started the Gold Seal program to provide clients with the assurance that business valuation firms are observing best practices.

Envelope, please: The first Gold Seal has been awarded to Habif, Arogeti & Wynne LLP (HA&W) for its business valuation services. According to HA&W, the firm was the subject of an exhaustive peer review of its people, processes, and work product as part of the ISBA program.

The Gold Seal program was developed by Howard Lewis, ISBA’s executive director, who designed the Internal Revenue Service’s business valuation training program as well as the Accredited in Business Appraisal Review credential issued by the National Association of Certified Valuation Analysts. Says Lewis: "Our goal and vision is to identify and recognize exemplary firms that have developed and maintain a high standard of integrity and excellence relating to core business values, management practices, processes, and excellence of operations and work product that are deserving of the public trust."

More information is available at the ISBA website.
