Doug Knapp
Senior Analyst at Forensic Strategic Solutions

I always thought if the time came for me to switch employers in this industry, I would be fine, just reach out to colleagues in my network.  Though it was somewhat helpful, no results.  I met John Borrowman nearly a decade ago but at the time, I was comfortable.  Little did I know how important that meeting would become.  Fast forward to 2020, around the peak of pandemic uncertainty, when John and I reconnected.  The opportunity he presented comes once in a lifetime, and he was there every step of the way.  John is the perfect advocate and hands on throughout the process.  Moral of the story, don’t go at it alone, call in the professionals, and you only need one, John Borrowman.


Dan Guderjohn
Valuation Advisor to Private Companies

My advice to any BV professional: call John. He is extremely connected within the industry and knowledgeable about the BV profession, having specialized in this niche for over 20 years. Even if you’re not actively looking for the next opportunity, John is ready and willing to offer his career insights and advice. He is a wonderful resource that should not be overlooked!


Brenda Wamala
Litigation+Valuation Analyst at Henry +Horne

I can’t thank John Borrowman enough for helping me to land a fantastic opportunity in the BV profession. John took the time to learn about my interests and experiences and used that to reach out to employers where there would be a perfect fit. He coached me on how to present myself in such a way that my best qualities shone through during interviews, and I never had an interview that didn’t go as John predicted it would. A job search that had stymied me for two years, John got me results in two months. This gentleman knows his stuff, his contacts in BV are vast and legit, and he gets good results. If you are looking for an opportunity in BV at any level, give John a call or shoot him an email. He will get back to you promptly.


Matt Jensen
ASA; Sr. Manager, Coker Group

John Borrowman is the go-to person for those looking for valuation-related opportunities. He knows the people within the valuation field better than anyone I have met. John recently helped me find an incredible opportunity, and he provides a smooth and excellent experience. He took the time to thoroughly understand me and my goals and aspirations first. Then he identified opportunities that would help me meet my priorities and fit my personality and experience. At every step in the interview and acceptance process, John provided deep insights and assisted significantly in my preparation efforts. John has been a great mentor, and I highly recommend him.


Holly Rook
Valuation Manager at Venture First

As a consultant to Business Valuation professionals, John provides exceptional feedback to help you get where you want to go. Whether that is changing employers, working toward a promotion or to provide insight into compensation ranges in your particular market. In fact, he recently acted as a sounding board regarding some ideas to differentiate myself from my competitors. Thanks John for letting me lean on your expertise as a consultant to other BV consultants!

Vice-President, Teknos Associates

John Borrowman has walked me through two significant career adjustments in the last ten years. His depth and breadth of knowledge of the Valuation sector is extensive, yet his attention to long-term goals and opportunities is what sets him far apart from other specialists. He has an uncanny knack for asking the right questions to determine the best set of opportunities or if a course change is required. He continues to be a great counsel and a valued member of my team.


Josh Downey
Vice-President, SC&H Capital

John’s forthright perspective is quite rare. He’s an attentive listener, and has been available for general guidance on multiple occasions (not just for new job opportunities). I highly encourage any business valuation professionals to open a dialogue with John—you’ll likely be glad you did. Old school professionalism at its finest.

CPA, ABV, ASA, MCBA; Advisory Practice National Leader, Marcum LLP

Over the nine years I worked to establish my business valuation firm, John was a trusted and valuable sounding board.  He freely consulted with me not only on hiring and staffing, but was also a valuable resource as I thought strategically about the future of my firm.  John’s relationships in the business valuation community run deep, and when I decided I wanted to make a move to merge with another firm, I turned to John.  He knew exactly who would be the perfect match:  John put Meyers, Harrison & Pia and Fannon Valuation Group together (now a part of Marcum LLP). All these years later, I can attest he was right: it’s been a perfect match.

John’s the leading search consultant serving the business valuation and related markets…he’s more connected with the profession than any one else, and has developed his own database of compensation standards, and skills assessments specific to our profession. Highly recommended.

John has provided recruiting services to our firm since the 1990s, and he and I have worked together on several placements over the years. I appreciate John’s ability to identify talent and his professionalism throughout the recruitment process. I would not hesitate to recommend John to anyone who is trying to identify, recruit, and hire talent in the business valuation space.

Rod Burkert
CPA, ABV, CVA; President, Burkert Valuation; Co-Founder, Practice Builder Academy

John is the leading search consultant for the business valuation community. That’s why we asked him to speak to the members of Practice Builder Academy about hiring and training BV professionals. Not only was he able to pass along different staffing strategies for growing a practice with new staff, his intimate knowledge of the industry allowed him to provide anecdotal insights about the state of the profession, which BV niches were doing well, and what areas of the country were hiring. His presentation was informative, entertaining, and well-received by Practice Builder Academy members.
