Welcome to Artisan Value Advisors


Measuring, Managing and Protecting Your Business Value

Artisan Value Advisors is a specialized, independent and virtual business valuation and consulting firm. Our focus on, passion for and expertise in valuation and planning related to closely-held and family-owned businesses makes us unique.

We mastered our skills, our craft if you will, over the years working for a large CPA and consulting firm. We then combined our carefully honed analytical and management skills with an opportunity in the market. Specifically, we “pulled out” of the large, broad service accounting firm model with the extensive infrastructure required of this type of firm to form Artisan, where we focus on the value of businesses through appraisals and advisory services – nothing more.

As a result, our cutting-edge and focused business model allows us to effectively and competitively deliver traditional business valuation services, but it also provides the opportunity for us to identify and advise on emerging trends affecting closely-held and family-owned businesses from an unbiased point of view.

Our uniqueness extends beyond our technical capabilities as we promise to deliver world-class client service on every engagement, from the small consulting assignment to the complex valuation engagement involving a publicly traded company. Contact us today» to explore how we can help you to measure, manage and protect the value of your business.




Chris Bushey, CFO

It was certainly a pleasure to work with Glenn and Ryan on our recent stock valuation. They asked the appropriate questions to get to “know our business” and used the proper techniques to produce a quality report. The project was completed on time. They were professional and responsive throughout the engagement!

We appreciate the independent business valuation process Glenn (Artisan) has utilized for many years. Not only are we confident in the reliability of Artisan’s accountability processes, we also note the understanding they have of the economics of the business in which our ESOP is involved.

I am very happy that Glenn and Ryan have brought their professionalism and attention to detail to their new platform, Artisan Value Advisors.

Alex Snyder, Partner

We contacted Artisan for the valuation of 6 real estate partnerships and a c-corporation for an inheritance tax return. Due to various issues, we needed all of the valuations within three weeks. Artisan was able to beat our deadline (without complaint) and priced all of the valuations very reasonably. Glenn and Ryan were willing to meet several times on short notice to complete the analysis and make sure we were happy with their work (which we were).

MacGregor J. Brillhart, Attorney

Glenn has routinely been an invaluable asset to both my estate practice and Stock & Leader as a firm. Given Artisan’s responsiveness, competitive pricing and quality of work, I fully expect for Glenn and Ryan to increase their presence in the local valuation market.
