Branden Richmond Earns Highest Appraisal Accreditation

October 31, 2018

Branden Richmond, a Senior Analyst at BV Advisors, has recently acquired the professional designation of Accredited Senior Appraiser (ASA) for Business Valuation after fulfilling the requirements stipulated by the International Board of Examiners of the American Society of Appraisers.

BV Advisors, an affiliate of Geffen Mesher, provides business appraisals and litigation support services to its clientele in the business community. Richmond is one of three employees at the boutique firm, which is directed by R. Lee Foster.

The American Society of Appraisers is the oldest and most prominent appraisal discipline organization currently in practice. Earning the prestigious ASA designation is no small feat — candidates must pass both an ethics and an appraisal examination, meet competitive education requirements, and complete 10,000 hours of full-time appraisal experience before they can even apply.

“It’s been a long process,” said Richmond. “But I love the work that I do and I’m excited to move forward in assisting our clients as an Accredited Senior Appraiser.”

Geffen Mesher is in its 85th year and has been partnered with BV Advisors since 2002, when it was founded. Our expert teams are eager and prepared to address all of your business needs.
