How the CEPA Credential Improved Christina Rebel-Otterbach’s Practice

The Exit Planning Institute community is comprised of a large variety of professional advisors from across the globe. There are over 3,500 Certified Exit Planning Advisors in the marketplace currently helping business owners build value in their companies prior to exiting. 

What is a CEPA? 

The Certified Exit Planning Advisor (CEPA) credential is for professional advisors who want to effectively engage more business owners, build value within their business and exit on their own terms. Through the process of Exit Planning, utilizing the Value Acceleration Methodology, owners can build more valuable companies, have stronger personal financial plans, and align their personal goals. Earning the CEPA credential expands your expertise and enhances your ability to engage business owners and conduct value-added conversations around growth and exit.

With over 3,500 CEPAs in the marketplace, we have numerous stories and examples of how the Certified Exit Planning Advisor Credential improves client engagements, builds value in advisory practices, and ultimately makes a CEPA an owner’s most valued and trusted advisor.
