Two ABVs Win Awards


The Institute honored G. William Kennedy and Barry S. Sziklay in November at its National Business Valuation Conference in Phoenix for their contributions to the advancement of the valuation discipline.

Kennedy earned the 2003 AICPA Business Valuation Hall of Fame Award in recognition also of his lifetime achievements. These include being one of the developers of the first Accredited in Business Valuation examination, his service on the exam committee—of which he currently is chairman—and his furtherance of the multiple entry point system, which gives holders of certain other valuation designations credit toward obtaining the ABV credential.

Sziklay, an earlier Hall of Fame inductee and a practitioner, educator and Institute spokesperson, also won the 2003 AICPA Business Valuation Volunteer of the Year Award for his outstanding support of the ABV credential. The citation recognizes individuals for their extraordinary committee or task force service.
