This is the third time in Generational’s history we have been named Valuation Firm of the Year – a testament to our incredible Valuation Team, led by Jason Kimball, and the support they give to our clients year-in and year-out.

Alongside this, we’d like to celebrate several of our dedicated dealmakers for their role in these transaction-based awards. None of these accolades would have been possible without their outstanding commitment to helping clients grow their companies and maximize the value of their exit plans, particularly when faced with this year’s unprecedented challenges.
