Jim Hitchner has a passion for education. One look at his curriculum vitae shows how he has helped valuation analysts and litigation service providers through the courses he has designed, classes he has taught, and materials he has created. During his 30+ years in the business, Jim has published four books.

Two of those books, Financial Valuation Applications and Models and Financial Valuation Workbook, are the basis for national courses offered by both the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) and the National Association of Certified Valuation Analysts (NACVA).

Jim’s books, along with his many appearances at national conferences and state societies, have prompted an ongoing steady stream of emails with compliments and questions from those who have read his books or attended his presentations. This apparent need for more and better resources led Jim to establish Valuation Products and Services (VPS), a company devoted to education and practical application of business valuation and litigation services tools and resources.

Our core products include the Financial Valuation and Litigation Expert, a bi-monthly journal with articles from a distinguished Panel of Experts in the profession, the VPS StraightTalk webinar series bringing you outstanding educational programs on business valuation and litigation topics, and the BV Standards Compliance Toolkit, a series of electronic checklists and sample reports that can be adapted for individual use. VPS is introducing a Discount for Lack of Marketability Toolkit and Guide that will provide an in-depth process for determining and supporting a DLOM.
