"Bill has provided valuation service for 2 of my firm's clients. His work has been timely and professional in both cases. Both clients provided positive feedback."
Michael Specht, CPA
"I first met Bill through a business associate of mine looking for someone to help evaluate our growing business. We met Bill at his office and from the beginning he made us feel very comfortable. He listened to our thoughts and we began immediately to brainstorm ideas, this was very important to me because he knew that being in business "time is money." He secured that with me by following up on a timely manner and made me feel comfortable that he was going to perform...and he did. His report has helped us to make a good, sound business decision."
"Bill has done 3 or 4 valuations for me over the past few years and I have been very happy with his knowledge, communication throughout the process and results. I would highly recommend Bill."
"When we started working with Bill, my wife and I were in the beginning stages of starting a software company and needed a business plan and a line of credit. Bill worked with us to write our business plan and took the time to teach us the process so that we not only ended up with a good product, but a better understanding of the building blocks of a small business. Bill took great ownership of our application for a credit line, resulting in swift approval for the funds that we needed. Through the years all businesses need continued tweaking as they grow. I have never come to Bill with a challenge and found him wanting for knowledge or good counsel. Many business questions are also legal questions, and Bill never hesitated to get other professionals from other areas involved when he thought that it was necessary. I would highly recommend Bill to anyone in business who needs financial counsel or help with gameplanning the business side of their endeavor."
"Mr. Quackenbush was hired to conduct evaluation of businesses I owned and wanted to sell. He is particularly adept at conducting on target research to insure the data he compiles relates to the client's industry rather than simply providing generic data. He provided the reports in a timely fashion, well compiled and verifiable at every turn. His credentials and technical expertise are excellent and I recommend him without reservation."
"Bill has been both a client and respected adviser. His experience in banking, business consulting and valuation continues to prove to be invaluable to me as a business owner. The complex issues that surround companies in today's economic environment and their effects on the value of company assets, is why Advent will always be on my speed dial. As a highly credentialed professional, Bill represents the knowledge and expert opinion necessary to aid in your strategic business decisions."
"Seems to me that the best recommendation for Bill's work is that I hired him to personally evaluate a business I was going to purchase."
Peter Klose, Esq.
"It is rare to find an individual who embodies the finest attributes of an academic and a businessman. However, Bill does embody both with a healthy dose of efficiency, common sense and humanity that makes him truly unique. His breadth of knowledge and experience, not to mention his mile long CV are all additional reasons for people to trust that he will deliver proper and accurate valuations in a timely and cost effective manner."
"Bill was our provider for the valuation of the component assets of an acquisition. He was a pleasure to work with and provided the proper results in a timely manner."
"Mr Quackenbush did a fine job with our company valuation. I would recommend his services."
"We hired Bill to analyze and provide a valuation report for a business we were purchasing in order to assist us in securing financing. Quality of the report was very high and his expertise in the field of valuation is obvious. The lenders who reviewed the report were impressed with the output."
"Bill will solve your valuation needs in a thoughtful, well-reasoned and articulate manner accessible to the layman, but with the technical requirements to withstand scrutiny by potential adverse parties. Hire him."
"We have recommended Bill to various clients and he is professional and reliable."
Stuart Greenberg, CPA
"Bill provided a comprehensive and thorough valuation analysis of a complex bundle of hard assets, real estate interest and businesses in a litigation matter."
Vincent Gentile, Esq.
"I retained William Quackenbush of Advent Valuation Advisors as an expert witness in a complex litigation in federal court in the Southern District of NY. Mr. Quackenbush's expert valuation testimony was heavily relied on by Judge Alvin K. Hellerstein in awarding my client a judgment for approximately $26 million, inclusive of prejudgment interest and costs and attorneys fees. In his findings of fact, Judge Hellerstein stated that he found Mr. "Quackenbush to be a credible witness, and ... that his appraisal of the option shares was reliable and accurate and persuasive." I would highly recommend Bill Quackenbush to any attorney seeking an expert with comprehensive knowledge of the banking industry and exceptional expertise in valuation and its methodologies."
Pinchus Raice, Esq.
"Bill was instrumental in our company making a very complicated business property acquisition happen. We started with the business plan, then did 5 year projections on our current financials. This analysis was required to get a 4-part mortgage, one of which was with the SBA (Small Business Administration). We are indebted to Bill and his expertise."
