Letter from our CEO

Welcome to Stout Risius Ross (SRR), a premier global advisory firm that specializes in Investment Banking, Valuation & Financial Opinions, and Dispute Advisory & Forensic Services. Whether you are a prospective client or employee, I encourage you to take a look around our site and get to know us.

Since our inception in 1991, we have grown at a rapid pace by focusing on delivering exceptional service and building lasting relationships. Today, in addition to a powerful list of international affiliate locations, the firm has offices in Atlanta, Baltimore, Chicago, Cleveland, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Grand Rapids, Houston, Irvine, Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia, Tysons Corner, and Washington, D.C.

We have served a broad range of clients from Fortune 500 corporations to privately held companies in numerous industries and geographies around the world. Our clients and their advisors have come to rely on our premier expertise, deep industry knowledge, and unparalleled responsiveness on complex matters.

For the past 25 years we have developed a culture at SRR where positive team attitude, accountability, commitment, entrepreneurialism, and relationship focus are our core values.  This approach extends beyond the firm, as we volunteer our time, talent, and resources to positively impact the communities in which we do business.

SRR has been recognized numerous times as one of the best and brightest companies to work for. Our professionals have received numerous awards and are often called upon to share their expertise and experience at national conferences, industry forums, and on standards setting bodies. Our technical experts speak at a variety of events, host educational webinars, and author thoughtful and timely articles that are included in our semi-annual publication, the SRR Journal.

We believe that our employees are our greatest assets and we work hard to keep them engaged, encourage them to grow, and support them in their interests and aspirations so the firm can continue to successfully expand.  We recruit exceptional people that do exceptional things.

Many things have changed over the past 25 years. One thing that has not changed is our focus on providing our clients with the insight and advice they need to help make good decisions. From our earliest days, we have been guided by underlying values and the highest standards that have stood the test of time. We are proud to have grown from our humble beginnings to one of the largest independent, privately owned global advisory firms in the industry.

We look forward to developing a relationship with you.
