BDO’s Jeff Noble Earns Family Enterprise Advisor Designation

May 16, 2018

BDO’s Jeff Noble has earned the Family Enterprise Advisor (FEA) designation.

Jeff has a proven, recognized ability to bring family enterprises a broad perspective and holistic approach on the issues they face, offering timely and thoughtful solutions. In receiving the designation, Jeff joins an elite group of just 350 FEAs in Canada.

Leading the Business Transition Services practice in the Greater Toronto Area, Jeff joins BDO partners Cindy Radu (West Group) and Brent VanParys (Central Group), who have also earned the FEA designation.

Awarded by the Family Enterprise Xchange in Canada, the FEA designation is quickly becoming the standard to identify family enterprise advisory specialists. The FEA program compels advisors to step back from their technical profession of origin and provide critical context for trusted advisory work with multi-generational families and their businesses.

FEAs provide support in a number of key areas:

  • business family dynamics
  • family enterprise strategy 
  • business boards and family councils
  • multi-disciplinary advising
  • facilitation and communication approaches
  • continuity planning.

The FEA designation represents the pinnacle of professional expertise in the field of family enterprise advising.  Congratulations, Jeff.
