MCLEAN, Va. – July 6, 2018 – (Newswire.com)
The Exit Planning Institute announced that Sterling Neblett CFP®, Founding Partner of Centurion Wealth Management, recently earned the Certified Exit Planning Advisor (CEPA) designation after completing the Institute’s intensive 4-day executive MBA-style program in Chicago, IL. Sterling Neblett joins an elite group of business advisors who have received this prestigious designation and are a part of the Exit Planning Institute’s international community of CEPAs. The CEPA program is the most widely accepted and endorsed professional exit planning program in the world.
As an entrepreneur and business-owner himself, Neblett recognized the unique challenges faced throughout the life of a company and identified a need among his entrepreneur clients. Neblett explains, “As a Certified Exit Planning Advisor, I am excited to continue to add more value to our entrepreneur and business owner clients. Preparing for an inevitable business exit is very important to entrepreneurs, as most of their net worth is usually tied up in their business and historically only 20%-30% of business exits are successful. We want to ensure their success rate is much higher than average and they are well positioned to maximize their value.”
About the CEPA Program
The Certified Exit Planning Advisor program was specifically designed for business advisors who work closely with owners of privately held companies. The organizing principle of the program is Master Planning, the alignment of the three legs of the stool (business, personal, financial), which is executed through the implementation of a process called the Value Acceleration Methodology™. Using an executive MBA-style format, the program includes a combination of lectures, group discussions, case studies and individual exercises to introduce participants to these concepts and to reinforce skills. The program is taught by the Exit Planning Institute’s faculty of advisors, who are all sought after subject matter experts and authors.
