Matthew J. Boland CPA, CCIFP, director – accounting & assurance with McCarthy & Company, PC, a leader in construction accounting, recently earned the Certified Construction Industry Financial Professional (CCIFP) designation awarded by The Institute of Certified Construction Industry Financial Professionals, Inc. (ICCIFP). The CCIFP designation is "the only construction financial management certification accredited by the American National Standards Institute," according to ICCIFP. Two other members of the firm – Marty McCarthy, CPA, CCIFP, managing partner, and David Gibbs, CPA, CCIFP, MBA, partner, also hold this esteemed designation.

“Earning the CCIFP designation was important to me. It formally recognizes my expertise in construction accounting,” explains Boland. “The majority of the clients that I work with are construction contractors. I was interested in earning the CCIFP designation so I can help my clients strengthen their financial positions, grow their businesses, and become more profitable. That is the value proposition that McCarthy & Company delivers its clients.” By earning the CCIFP designation, Boland joins an exclusive group of fewer than 1,200 professionals nationwide who have met ICCIFP’s rigorous standards in the practice of construction financial management. Established in 2003, CCIFP is the only standard to recognize financial professionals with a superior understanding of the industry’s financial opportunities and challenges. To earn the designation, an applicant must serve in a professional financial role for a construction contractor or an accounting and/or financial service provider to the industry and pass a comprehensive exam. To maintain this certification, members are required to complete ongoing continuing education in the field of construction financial management.

The CCIFP designation raises the standards for construction financial professionals by giving special recognition to those who demonstrate skill and proficiency in their field, verified through advanced education, professional experience, and rigorous examination. As part of an elite group, Boland enjoys a new level of credibility and industry-wide recognition. He has a proven record of accomplishment, experience and success and is now counted among the most highly qualified construction financial professionals in the industry. The ICCFP is a not-for-profit corporation established to promote the highest standards of construction financial management through the credentialing of construction financial professionals. The CCIFP exam covers construction financial management topics such as accounting and reporting, income recognition, budgeting and planning, risk management, taxes, human resources, legal issues, and information technology. This designation has garnered endorsements from the Construction Financial Management Association (CFMA), Construction Industry CPAs/Consultants Association (CICPAC), International Risk Management Institute (IRMI), National Association of Surety Bond Professionals (NASBP), and other well-respected construction industry groups.

He earned a Bachelor of Art degree in accounting and finance from Muhlenberg College in 2010.
