Ed Mason-Smith, Project Services Director at CBO, has achieved Chartered Project Professional (ChPP) status with the Association of Project Management (APM). He joins CBO’s COO Alastair Bisson in gaining the status, highlighting CBO’s focus on internal professional development and investment in people.

“The Chartered Project Professional (ChPP) standard is a professional benchmark that demonstrates attainment of a defined level of technical knowledge, professional practice, and ethical behaviour,” APM Chartered Standard.

Developing a community of experts with the highest standards of professionalism, ethical conduct, knowledge, and technical competence remains fundamental to our success. Supporting our team to achieve Chartered Status demonstrates our commitment to these values and gives our clients confidence that team members will deliver change using the highest standards of project management practice, whilst remaining accountable to an external Chartered body.
