KatzAbosch Valuation Services LLC June 30, 2014 The KatzAbosch Valuations Team is growing. On May 30th, Shelly Brennan, ASA joined the Firm as Manager on the Valuations Team. She came to our Firm as a business valuations expert from McGladrey LLP and holds a BS from Salisbury University. Her industry experience includes government contracting, auto dealerships, technology, real estate, manufacturing and distribution. Shelly is a member of the American Society of Appraisers (ASA) and in her free time, enjoys golfing and skiing. “We are very excited to welcome Shelly Brennan, ASA to our valuation team. Shelly brings more than seven years business valuation experience focused on middle market companies and high net worth estates. Her experience builds additional depth in two key areas of our practice: fair value measurement for financial reporting and valuations for tax purposes,” says David Witherspoon, MBA, AVA, CEPA, Director of Business Valuation Practice. In addition to internal growth, our valuation team just assisted in negotiating an amicable partner buyout of a truck dealership. Our negotiations with the opposing valuation expert directly led to a final purchase price 85% higher than the initial offer. $900 thousand is a good start for retirement. $1.6 million is better.
