Founder of Transcend Valuation, Brad has significant experience covering the full spectrum of Transcend Valuation’s service offerings. Brad's professional valuation experience over the past 18 years has covered an extremely diverse range of industries, company sizes, and engagement purposes. From consulting with technology start-ups to diversified publicly-traded Fortune 500 companies, Brad has provided valuation services to assist with capital raising, strategic investment decisions, financial reporting, and tax planning and compliance. Regardless of the engagement purpose, Brad's objective is the same: to develop high quality, theoretically sound and well-supported opinions of value that are articulated well both verbally and in writing and are able to withstand scrutiny.
Brad has written extensively and given numerous presentations on valuation matters related to such topics as intellectual property, financial reporting, and tax compliance. Brad also has served in a leadership role for national and regional professional organizations, including the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and the Fair Value Forum (Silicon Valley).
Recently, Brad has had an opportunity to put his extensive consulting experience to work as an investor and strategic advisor to a couple of internet start-ups in Southern California.
