Newly Certified Northeast Indiana CCIFPs Enhance KSM’s Construction Expertise

Corey McSweeney and Seth Sailors, both certified public accountants with Katz, Sapper & Miller, have earned the Certified Construction Industry Financial Professional (CCIFP®) designation. They join KSM’s deep bench of CCIFPs and are based in the firm’s Fort Wayne office focusing on the accounting, tax, and consulting needs of clients in northeast Indiana.

The CCIFP designation is the only accounting certification for construction financial professionals accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). Individuals awarded the CCIFP designation are those that know and understand the business complexities of the construction industry. CCIFPs must complete and pass a rigorous construction finance exam that tests expertise in eight knowledge domains, including accounting and reporting, income recognition methods, risk management, and law. Additionally, they must have a minimum of 4,000 hours of professional experience in construction.

Although there are more than 1,100 active CCIFPs nationwide, only 24 practice in Indiana. Six of these certified experts are part of KSM’s Construction Services Group.
