San Francisco, CA and Milwaukee, WI (June 20, 2020) – Valuation Research Corporation (VRC), a leading global provider of independent valuation support and advisory services, announced veteran valuation professional, Bryan Browning, has retired after 35 years with the firm.
Browning stepped down from his valuation practice and daily leadership of the Milwaukee office earlier this year. He is staying on in a consulting capacity, continuing to share his experiences, and serve VRC clients.
Browning joined VRC in 1982 and specialized in financial studies and the valuation of intellectual property and other intangible assets. Qualified in both real estate valuations and value-related financial analysis, he also devoted his time to valuations of capital stock and business enterprises, and to the development of opinions concerning solvency, fairness, and capital adequacy. During his career with the firm, he was named division manager and led the San Francisco office in 1991, and in the mid-1990s, he also assumed leadership roles for the New York and Boston offices before returning to the Midwest. Dan Peterson and Kevin Hagemeier have assumed his day-to-day management and valuation responsibilities.
“We are grateful for Bryan’s enormous contribution to VRC,” said Justin Johnson, co-CEO. “Bryan was instrumental in building our Milwaukee practice and contributed significantly to our financial valuation work. He served our clients and helped other VRC associates for more than 35 years.”
Browning holds the designations of chartered financial analyst (CFA) and accredited senior appraiser (ASA) from the American Society of Appraisers. He holds a master’s degree in economics and finance from the University of Wisconsin-LaCrosse and a bachelor’s degree in economics from the University of Wisconsin-Platteville.
