Censere Restructures into Three Divisions

As part of a continuous review of operations, Censere has restructured its business into three operating Divisions; Financial Valuation & Advisory, Technical Valuation & Advisory and Intellectual Capital Management. Previously, Censere offered all of its services via a single operating unit with services split into four main service lines. Under the new structure, we have dedicated staff in each of the three Divisions which will enable us to further strengthen skills and experience in each area and clearly promote each area as a centre of competence. From a client perspective, many of our engagements extend to two or more lines of service and we have always managed this by appointing an engagement manager to ensure that all facets of the engagement are properly coordinated.

Censere Forms Dedicated Intellectual Management Division

Following the recent introduction of IC Audit services using the IC Rating method developed by Intellectual Capital Sweden, Censere is pleased to announce that we are forming a new Division to focus on the area of Intellectual Capital Management. The new division, headed by Yung Shadbolt, will undertake the services previously offered under the heading of Intellectual Asset Management, together with the IC Audit service and several additional services which we will be introducing shortly. Intellectual capital management is rapidly becoming mainstream and this new initiative will enable Censere to promote related services in a more coherent manner. Our other services lines - Financial Valuation, Financial Advisory and Technical Valuation and Advisory will be grouped under the Valuation and Financial Advisory Division. Over the next few weeks our website and marketing material will be revised to reflect this new structure. Please be sure to check in regularly for updates.
