Larking Gowen celebrates young CPI prize winner
A young student, from East Anglian accountancy firm, Larking Gowen, has won the prize for the highest mark in the CPI (Certificate of Proficiency in Insolvency) exam in England and Wales.
Charlie Moss, who started his insolvency career in July 2020, joined Larking Gowen directly after his A-levels.
“Taking the CPI exam was the natural progression in my career. It’s a well-regarded qualification and I thought it would expand my technical knowledge,” explained Charlie, whose study regime involved going back through five years’ worth of past exam questions.
Learning the theory and making sure you practise how to apply it is Charlie’s single piece of advice for those considering the CPI exam. “There’s no point having knowledge/theory if you don’t know how to apply it,” he said.
Andrew Kelsall, Larking Gowen partner, and one of the lead partners in the firm’s insolvency and recovery team, is full of praise for Charlie and his achievement.
“Charlie is a young man with plenty of life experience. He’s an integral part of our great insolvency team at Larking Gowen. We’re delighted for him with his CPI result which is very well deserved, and we look forward to supporting him as he develops his career with us,” said Andrew.
What’s next for Charlie? He says, “I have nothing planned but JIEB (Joint Insolvency Examination Board) will be on the horizon one day. Here at Larking Gowen, one of the partners, Lee Green, was a JIEB prize winner, so that’s a lot of pressure to deliver!”
