Midland, MI: Yeo & Yeo CPAs & Business Consultants is pleased to announce that John W. Haag Sr., CPA/ABV, CVA, CFF, was recently named a recipient of the National Association of Certified Valuators and Analysts (NACVA) and Consultants Training Institute (CTI) inaugural "40 Under Forty" award. The program recognizes individuals under age 40 who have made extraordinary advances in, and contributions to, the business valuation and forensic accounting professions and their local communities. The honorees were selected from a pool of more than 125 nominees.
Haag is a principal in the Midland office of Yeo & Yeo and co-leader of the firm's Business Valuation and Litigation Support Group. He entered the valuation field in 2003 when only one other person at the firm was routinely providing these services. Through his leadership and commitment to developing this niche, the group has grown to seven professionals, with double-digit revenue growth each year.
In addition to valuation services, Haag also provides expert witness testimony and has been solely responsible for developing the firm's physician practice valuation services.
"John Haag's inclusion in the inaugural '40 Under Forty' is a tribute to his superior client service and dedication to this industry," said David W. Schaeffer, managing principal of the Saginaw office and Haag's mentor. "He has taken a leadership role in developing the firm's valuation services and accepted an increased responsibility for the demands of our clients. I commend him on this achievement."
Haag is a Certified Valuation Analyst and holds the Certified in Financial Forensics accreditation from the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants. His other areas of expertise include litigation support, individual and business tax, managerial consulting and new business start-ups.
Haag's dedication to the Michigan Chapter of NACVA has been recognized by his election to vice president/president-elect. He routinely leads state chapter meetings and actively recruits new members to join.
Yeo & Yeo's Business Valuation and Litigation Support Group brings expertise to a broad spectrum of valuation and litigation support situations. The specialists bring with them the benefit of professional training, experience and third-party objectivity to conduct valuations effectively and help business owners make sound decisions.
Haag serves his community as a steering committee member of the Midland Young Professionals Network and chair of the 100 Young Professionals Club. He is a member of the Midland Noon Rotary Club, a member of the board of Hidden Harvest, a member of the Midland Community Foundation Grant Committee, and a member/past president of the Midland Exchange Club. He is a Junior Achievement instructor, a Leadership Midland Alumni and a Molitor International 1000 Leaders graduate.
As a winner of this prestigious award, Haag was showcased at the NACVA and CTI's 2014 Annual Consultants' Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada.
