Dave Ribando, CFA


Dave founded VIO with the goal of providing ultra-responsive and high-touch valuation services, all at an affordable price. During his 24 years of valuation experience, he’s listened carefully to customer feedback and has continually improved the service delivery experience. Dave spent 10 years at a Big 4 firm in San Francisco learning from some of the sharpest minds in the business. He then helped build and grow a mid-sized consulting firm before its eventual sale. VIO is Dave’s third act, and we hope you agree that it’s his best.
