When Phil Scott and Jim Doty, the founding principals, sat down to form Doty/Scott Enterprises, Inc. (DSE) in 1997, they had a clear vision of what they wanted their company to be – “the highest quality financial and business consulting service firm available.” Having both been owners and leaders of prior business enterprises, they understood this was a very high bar to achieve. In the last 25+ years, they have built their clients’ trust using their expertise, creativity, and integrity to support and service a vast array of private and public businesses in both the United States and across the globe. Their firm, and the outstanding team, are all first-class experts in the field of corporate valuations, having performed thousands of valuations over the years.
