Saari, Golish and all other recipients will be honored during a November 7 awards ceremony at the annual AICPA Forensic & Valuation Services conference in Nashville, Tennessee.

“Sean and Dan are exceptional young professionals who shine in all aspects of their lives—within the firm, the profession and the community,” said Bob Ranallo, CPA/ABV, JD, CVA, CFF, Skoda Minotti. “Much of their respective success is attributable to their ongoing desire to learn and be the best, their work ethic, and a keen ability to blend exceptional analytical aptitude with clear and concise communication skills.”

Starting out as an intern, Saari soared in an eight-year span, moving through the ranks to become the youngest partner in Skoda Minotti’s history. Today he manages the firm’s Valuation and Litigation Services group, which has grown over 110% under his leadership to become one of the firm’s largest niches. He has authored more than 75 articles, e-books, blogs and white papers and has been published in numerous trade journals.

Golish, a principal with the Valuation and Litigation Services group, has 15 years of accounting and finance experience in business valuation, litigation support, financial reporting, and external and internal auditing. He has assisted a diverse client base in the areas of financial reporting valuation issues, domestic disputes, litigation matters, shareholder disputes and estate and gift tax filing.
