Jeff Stegner, CPA-ABV, CFE

You have reached my bio page and I have some news to share. I have started my own firm for Litigation Support Services and am no longer a Partner with ArmaninoLLP. Both Armanino and I saw the true value for our litigation support clients to be served by a small boutique firm while Armanino could fully focus on their end-to-end valuation offerings.

In fact, if you’re looking for valuations, I want to assure you that the same team who worked with me will continue to perform valuations, so there will be no interruption in quality or service to you or Armanino’s current clients.

If you are interested in valuations work, contact Dirk Van Dyke directly who will be able to assist you with your need. Dirk has more than 20+ years of experience, performing more than 1,000 business valuations. Alternately, if you would like to reach me for Litigation Support Services, use the contact form on the side of the page.

Thank you,

Jeff Stegner

The valuation team of finance and accounting experts combined with the use and development of sophisticated valuation methodologies, fulfills even the most complex financial reporting and tax requirements. Valuation services include 409A, ASC718/FAS 123R, estate and gift tax, valuations related to M&A, derivatives and a full end-to-end solution taking into account equity management. Armanino’s team has a strong specialty in valuing technology businesses and technology-centric assets and its valuation opinions are fully defensible and documented to withstand scrutiny from the IRS, SEC, financial auditors, or other regulatory bodies.

In his 20+ years of experience, Dirk has performed more than 1,000 business valuations. He has particular expertise serving clients in the software, life sciences, telecommunications and green industries, and has valued intangible assets such as developed and in-process R&D, customer contracts and relationships, patents, trade names, licensing agreements and covenants not to compete. He has also developed valuation models for companies with complex capital structures. Dirk is co-author of The Business of Business Valuation (McGraw-Hill) and has given numerous industry presentations on tech company valuations, IRS Code Section 409A and FASB SAS 123R.

He has a longstanding passion for math and science. At age 14, on his own initiative, Dirk applied to and was accepted at a science and technology magnet high school. He received his BA in economics from John Hopkins University and his MS in business administration from the Haas School of Business at the University of California, Berkeley. In addition, he completed coursework and passed the qualifying exam for a PhD in accounting from the Haas School.

Dirk is also active in his community. He volunteers at local hospitals and serves as a math tutor for low-income children in his area.
