Bethany Hearn


My passion is helping business owners achieve their goals, both now and in future transition events. I enjoy working with business owners to evaluate value drivers and strategies for reducing risk and increasing business value leading to the development of a transition plan.

Although primarily located in Champaign, Illinois, I have been valuing businesses across the country for more than 20 years. I have valued businesses in many industries for value growth, transaction, gift and estate tax planning and filings, shareholder agreements and litigation purposes. Each business is unique! Learning the story of a business is one of the most rewarding aspects of performing business valuations.
