DSMheadshot-BWDon S. Matso Founder, The Valere Group, Inc.

For more than thirty years, Don Matso has worked with a broad range of companies and has helped them earn hundreds of millions of dollars. Using his special expertise in what he calls "Strategic Value Creation," he guides private business owners in maximizing their company's market value long before they reach a key transitional event such as a merger or sale. 

Don's skill in improving profitability, performance and market value has been developed over the years through his experience in key management and operational positions – such as building a business from a concept to millions in revenue, culminating in a sale; in operations and senior management roles in the corporate world with firms like Boise Cascade and Weyerhaeuser Corporation; and in managing a mergers and acquisition advisory service for a division of Smith Barney/Citigroup.

Today, his firm, The Valēre Group, brings his experience to business owners who realize there will be a crucial transitional event in their future but who are not sure of how to be "positioned" for that eventuality. His focus on strategic value creation prepares owners for this transition by integrating value maximization as part of the day-to-day management of the enterprise.
