As the founder and chairman of EACVA, Andreas Creutzmann has had a substantial influence on the organisation’s strategic orientation and development. He initiated negotiations with NACVA in 2003 with the goal of establishing the Certified Valuation Analyst (CVA) in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. In 2005, he founded EACVA e.V. with other renowned scientists and valuation professionals aiming at the creation of a new profession. Up to that point, there had not been a specific proof of qualification for business valuators. By passing the two-piece exam as a CVA, the valuation professional proves his or her practical and theoretical knowledge in the field of business and intangible assets valuation. Since then, more than 1.000 valuation professionals have been trained and certified as CVAs in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. EACVA has expanded into other European countries since 2016. This expansion strategy is led by Andreas Creutzmann. NACVA calls Andreas Creutzmann an Industry Titan of the Valuation Profession.
