Who We Are

United Certified Professional Managers (UCPM) is a not-for-profit membership organisation representing professionals in the UK and internationally. By supporting sales and finance executives, hr managers and business leaders in their careers, and by improving professional business standards, we benefit our members, their organisations and, ultimately, the wider economy.

What We Do

We advance the reputation and effectiveness of our members by providing them with a range of benefits, including access to recognised qualifications, professional networking opportunities, and practical information and advice. Whether you’re new or an experienced professional, the UCPM will support you throughout your  career.

MY OWN DEFINITION OF LEADERSHIP IS THIS: THE CAPACITY AND THE WILL TO RALLY MEN AND WOMEN TO A COMMON PURPOSE AND THE CHARACTER WHICH INSPIRES CONFIDENCE.

Bernard Law Montgomery

To set standards of professional excellence and integrity for professional executive managers, providing qualifications and promoting the highest level of competence to our members, individuals and firms.

The UCPM believes professionalism is the blend of three elements:

  • Knowledge

  • Skills

  • Behaviour

We believe a professional is someone who has a combination of knowledge and skills, and acts with integrity. Our purpose, as a professional body, is to provide and encourage the attributes necessary to be a professional.
