Mike Pattengale Earns Accredited in Business Valuation (ABV) Credential
REDW LLC, one of the Southwest’s 10 largest certified public accounting and business consulting firms, is pleased to announce that Mike Pattengale, Manager of Valuation & Forensic Services in the Firm’s Business Valuation, Forensic & Litigation Services department, has added the Accredited in Business Valuation (ABV) designation to his list of credentials.
The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) awards the ABV credential to CPAs who meet its education and experience requirements and successfully complete its required ABV examination – attained by less than one percent (1%) of its membership. Per the AICPA, the ABV credential “is widely recognized by users of valuation services as designating CPAs who have expertise and experience in performing financial valuations of a business, ownership interest, security or intangible assets.” REDW now boasts three such experts in its Business Valuation, Forensic & Litigation Services group: Principal Ed Street, Senior Consultant Carl Alongi, and Manager Mike Pattengale.
Mike has nearly two decades of accounting and valuation experience in commercial real estate. He also has significant accounting experience with long-term healthcare facilities, equipment dealerships, subcontractor construction, and interstate trucking. Mike is well versed in valuation matters pertaining to ownership interests in real estate entities, such as private placement memorandums, estates and other transfers. Mike has participated in valuation and calculation engagements while at REDW, providing analysis and reporting at the professional level in a variety of engagements involving business valuation, investigative and forensic accounting matters, ESOP valuation, collateral valuation, financial reporting, commercial litigation and marital dissolutions.
In addition to being a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) and now an Accredited Business Valuation (ABV) specialist, Mike holds the Chartered Global Management Accountant (CGMA) designation granted by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants.
