The CGMA designation recognizes professionals who have demonstrated a deep understanding of finance and have expanded their business skills through experience as management accountants to help drive better business decisions.
“I am honored to receive the CGMA designation, and I am delighted that the accounting profession recognizes the value that management accountants bring to organizations,” Haffey said. “This designation represents a commitment to advanced education, ethics and professional development that is critical to delivering superior outcomes for our clients and leading them to business success.”

The designation recognizes the most talented and committed management accountants with the discipline and skill to drive sustainable business success.
To qualify for the CGMA in the U.S., finance professionals must have trained as a CPA, passing the Uniform CPA Examination and meeting educational requirements in their states.
