The firm is headquartered in Eagle, Idaho (near Boise). The founding principal, Peter J. Butler, CFA, ASA, MBA, has been analyzing securities since 1995. Peter has become a thought leader in the business valuation industry and is frequently asked to speak at national and regional business valuation conferences for his work related to our More Empirical: Less Subjective™ credo in our logo.

In fact in 2016, Peter was selected by the National Association of Certified Valuators and Analysts (NACVA) as one of the “Industry Titans: The Financial Consulting Profession’s Most Influential” in the Business Valuation and Financial Forensics Masters category – one of only 19 in the country for this prestigious recognition.

Many appraisers have had to completely guess at an appropriate discount rate (or cost of capital) in the income approach to valuation prior to Peter championing more quantitative/empirical approaches. For more information on these appraisal industry innovations, please see Peter’s biography.

Valtrend has two other very important members on the team. Professor Keith Harvey, Ph.D., CFA, Associate Professor of Finance at Boise State University; and Joe Cacopardo, a merger & acquisition specialist, round out the team.

Our team's unique and diverse background will add significant value to the valuation, mergers & acquisition and/or consulting process. Throughout our careers we have discovered that different perspectives and experiences bring special insights to valuation, financial and/or strategic issues. Unlike many appraisal firms, we will incorporate real world, transactional experiences as well as high-powered academic/quantitative skills in reaching our conclusions. Our team will be able to handle the most complex financial/valuation/strategic issues and deliver opinions and reports in an effective and easily understandable manner.

As our business name, Valtrend, and logo connote, we will zero in on a company's "Val"ue in a More Empirical: Less Subjective™ manner and then provide guidance on how to increase its value. One of the hidden gems of any business valuation is the opportunity to not only learn the current value of your business, but also to gain 3rd party insight into how to increase its value for an eventual exit. We call this philosophy: Value Today for Tomorrow™.
