Artisan was built on a foundation of three basic principles:
Experience, Efficiency and Passion
Artisan is a firm that performs business valuations and serves in an advisory role to enhance business value. Glenn Spinello, who has devoted his career to the profession of business valuation, founded the firm. Before forming Artisan, Glenn spent years working in the business valuation and consulting group of a top 25 regional public accounting firm.
A high quality business valuation is best crafted by modern-day artisans. Our toolbox doesn’t contain the chisels and lathes of traditional artisans, but it is full of the necessary tools to provide a solid valuation and advice, such as cutting-edge technology, relevant data and continuing education to keep our skills finely tuned. We understand that these tools are simply a means to an end and not a substitute for skill and experience in a focused area, common sense and understanding a company’s story – we go far beyond simply crunching numbers.
Artisan was created to be a specialized value consulting business, completely independent of any other professional services and other firms. The Artisan business model is focused on value opinions and advice. Our valuation services are free from alternate service conflicts due to our concentrated business model, and we are totally unbiased in our valuation services, providing advice that is both impartial and uninfluenced by other assignments.
Our unique model eliminates unnecessary infrastructure, and overall corporate distractions and other inefficiencies, which allows us to focus, with passion, our full efforts on what we know best! This translates into a firm culture that delivers top quality service and advice and a flexible array of products that are catered to the needs of our clients.
