Master Certified Machinery and Equipment Appraiser (MCMEA)

Robert E. Mathews, Chief Appraiser and Managing Member of The Trimeath Group LLC is one the small percentage of appraisers to have earned the designation of Master Certified Machinery and Equipment Appraiser (MCMEA). A Master Certified Machinery and Equipment Appraiser (MCMEA) has the training, knowledge, experience and background to render a Certified Machinery and Equipment Appraisal Report.

MCMEA professionals receive extensive continuous training on a monthly basis and are subject to peer review on a regular basis. Only after a professional passes a comprehensive written examination and submits an appraisal is that professional awarded the prestigious professional designation of MCMEA by the National Equipment & Business Builders Institute (NEBB), Wichita, Kansas. In addition, the professional is required to re-certify every five years.

More importantly, a MCMEA is required to observe the highest standards of professional ethics and comply with regulations mandated by the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice (USPAP). Only the skills of a MCMEA professional make sound financial business sense to determine an accurate value.

NEBB mandates that every member and MCMEA professional comply with the Ethics Rule of the Uniform Standards of Professional Appraisal Practice. NEBB promotes and adopts the 21 standards of the USPAP Ethics Rule. It is imperative that the NEBB member and CMEA promote and preserve the public trust inherent in professional appraisal practice.

A MCMEA's comprehensive and detailed Appraisal Report provides an accurate and descriptive Report that includes photographs, model numbers, serial numbers and other descriptive information. Values are based on extensive research, personal inspection as well as contact with manufacturers and suppliers to determine what machinery and equipment is really worth.

A MCMEA stands behind the Certified Appraisal Report. That's why it withstands scrutiny by financial institutions, CPA's and courts.
