Who We Are Experienced Professionals
Knowledge and Experience
An estimate of value or appraisal requires a unique combination of knowledge and capabilities, including, but not limited to the following: extensive experience with quantitative financial analyses, a knowledge of economics and how industries and their market participants operate competitively, a historical perspective and current information about the capital markets, and knowledge about how to research the regulatory reporting requirements for the valuation of businesses, equity interests, and intangible assets.
These analytic skills are necessary so that a scientific approach can be employed during the valuation process and to support an opinion of value.
Extensive Appraisal and Financial Experience.
ValuationVC’s professionals have had careers with extensive financial analytic experience – Big 4 accounting, financial consulting services, national appraisal firms, investment banking, and real estate investment.
Our professionals also have experience providing expert testimony, analyses for class-action litigation and damage calculations, and possess experience with the high-tech industries and with assisting unique start-ups and turnaround situations.
Strong Academic Backgrounds.

Each of our appraisers holds an advanced degree and credentials documenting specialized valuation training as well as membership in professional societies.
