MEET THE FOUNDER
Henry Kaskov has spent his entire career in business valuation and financial consulting. His journey began as a consultant in the disputes and investigations division of a large consulting firm, where he traveled internationally to assist multinational corporations and financial institutions with complex financial and regulatory matters. His path next led him to a boutique business valuation firm, where he spent over ten years performing business valuations and providing litigation support services, serving as a Managing Director for several years. In mid-2020, Henry founded KVi, beginning the next chapter in his journey.
Henry grew up in the Northwest suburbs of Chicago and attended the University of Illinois, where he earned a degree in finance and a concentration in economics. He also met his wife, Jessica, and after graduation they moved to California. After several years of enjoying everything there is to love about the west coast, they moved back to sweet home Chicago to start a family.
They have their hands full with two young boys, Riley and Parker, whose insatiable curiosity and energy is something to admire. When not spending time with the family or working, Henry enjoys mountain biking, camping, hiking, golf and a good craft beer or bourbon cocktail.
