Gregory Gilbert – Founder
Greg is the founder of Corporate Valuations and is one of the most recognizable and respected business valuation names in the Northwest. Today, Greg remains active with CVI and currently holds the position of Senior Appraiser. During the course of his 30 years in the business appraisal industry, Greg has valued nearly a thousand private companies, including some of the largest in the Northwest. Greg has been very active in the American Society of Appraisers since 1983.
As part of Greg’s involvement with the American Society of Appraisers he is active in many aspects of the society and has held many positions. He was head of education, chair of the committee that runs business valuation, on the Board of Governors, provided peer review for articles in the society’s Business Valuation Reviews, and Co-founded the ASA’s Center for Advanced Valuation Studies. Greg was elected to be a Fellow of the ASA – an honorary designation reserved for appraisers who have made significant contributions to the profession and to the ASA.
Outside of ASA he held two particularly important positions. He was the first non-real estate appraiser to hold a position of the Appraiser Qualifications Board (AQB). The AQB is a U.S. government mandated group that sets education, experience and continuing education requirements for appraiser licensing. He served for 12 years as the co-USA representative to the International Valuation Standards Committee, the group that develops the valuation standards required for use by the International Accounting Standards Board. Greg was again the only non-real estate appraiser on this committee.
