HoganTaylor Professional receives CIRA certification

Advisory Consulting Manager Jon Tatum recently earned the Certified Insolvency & Restructuring Advisor (CIRA) designation from the Association of Insolvency and Restructuring Advisors (AIRA). With his certification, Tatum became one of only five CIRA recipients in the state of Oklahoma and the only one located in Tulsa, Okla.

The CIRA program recognizes by public awareness and by certification, those individuals who possess a high degree of specialized, professional, financial, and operational expertise in the area of business bankruptcy and insolvency. Such experience includes accounting, operational, taxation, law, finance, and management strategies related to business bankruptcy and insolvency.

Tatum has more than 25 years of accounting, tax and consulting experience in a variety of industries and currently serves in HoganTaylor’s Advisory practice.

“This unique qualification will be instrumental as we continue to expand HoganTaylor’s Advisory offerings, particularly in the growing financial insolvency and debt restructuring practice areas,” Robert Wagner, HoganTaylor’s Advisory Practice Lead, said.

To receive this certification, Tatum successfully completed an in-depth financial insolvency and restructuring examination which covered all aspects of bankruptcy and reorganization, including, managing financial turnaround and bankruptcy cases, reorganization plan development, insolvency accounting, financial reporting and related tax issues.

In addition to passing the comprehensive three-part examination, all CIRA recipients must have a minimum of five years of accounting or financial experience, and have completed, within the last eight years, 4,000 hours of specialized insolvency and reorganization experience.
