EACTP celebrates its Founding Fifty
Europe's pioneering accreditation association for turnaround management professionals has welcomed its 50th member.
The association, which has presented commemorative awards to its 'Founding Fifty', now has 54 members from 13 European countries.
EACTP has created the first pan European accreditation programme for turnaround professionals to provide an industry standard of quality in turnaround and restructuring.
Certificates were presented to the first ten turnaround practitioners to qualify as members of the EACTP at TMA Europe's annual conference two years ago. At this year’s conference in Stockholm Founding Fifty awards were handed out to EACTP members.
Tyrone Courtman, who has been President of EACTP since it was launched, said: "All involved with EACTP believe our accreditation provides a much-needed European kitemark of quality for our profession. We also feel EACTP has an important role to play in raising awareness of the benefits of what we do, and helping to demonstrate the significance of turnaround management as a specialised profession.
"It is very pleasing to see our membership flourishing as turnaround professionals across Europe realise the value of becoming a Certified Turnaround Professional."
Ian Gray, chair of EACTP's Standards and Admissions Committee, added: "This is an important milestone for EACTP and we wanted to mark it by acknowledging our first fifty members."
The EACTP's accreditation is based on TMA Global's well-established CTP programme.
