Justin Johnson Named co-CEO of Valuation Research Corporation

San Francisco, CA (August 1, 2017)

Valuation Research Corporation (VRC) has named Justin Johnson co-CEO, effective today. Johnson had been managing partner of VRC’s San Francisco office and will work in his new role side-by-side with co-CEO PJ Patel to sustain alignment of VRC’s culture, colleagues and client-centric approach across nine U.S. offices and 11 international affiliates.

“I’m eager to collaborate with PJ as we build on the collective strengths of everyone at VRC,” said Johnson. “Since my first day, VRC has given me opportunities to grow, and I’m thankful for this new challenge to better serve my colleagues and clients.”

Johnson is a proven leader within the company, having started VRC’s San Francisco office and building it into one of the company’s leading practices with an emphasis on private equity clients and private equity portfolio companies. With more than 20 years of experience, he focuses on solvency opinions, fairness opinions and capital surplus opinions as well as conducting valuations for investment, financial reporting and tax purposes.

“Our unique co-CEO structure allows us to focus on the health and development of VRC while continuing to support clients and be involved in day-to-day technical work,” said PJ Patel. “Justin is an admirable example of the kind of technical knowledge we’re known for in the industry. Growing our team from the inside, up is one of the reasons why we have long tenures and seasoned experts like Justin to help drive VRC while keeping long-standing relationships with our clients.”

Johnson will continue to operate in the San Francisco office, overseeing VRC’s West Coast and Central regions. Patel will remain in Princeton, New Jersey, managing the East Coast region.
