iT Valuations (iTV) has 12+ years of extensive experience in valuations, mergers, and acquisitions. With over 67+ completed transactions under their belt, iTV founder, Reed Warren, wanted to accomplish more. He knew what it felt like to be denied the full financial worth of his own business efforts. In fact, that’s why he founded iTV: he couldn’t stand watching the same thing happen to other business owners.
Reed started iTV to help owners reap the full value of a lifetime of investment in their companies so they could achieve their personal wealth targets and make the best decisions for their next stage in life. Never is this more apparent than when an owner needs to quickly sell and exit their company after receiving a serious health diagnosis. At the end of a long career, what these owners yearn for most is more time with the ones they love. These are the moments when our mission makes a difference. Fortunately, not all owners are dealt such a hand.
However, most business owners still face a myriad of business challenges when it comes to selling, buying, merging or transferring a partner. Most need solid advice, a guiding hand, a caring heart, and a team dedicated to helping them reach their goals after a lifetime of hard work. That’s iTV. That’s why we’re here.
Reed is our CEO, Certified Valuation Analyst (CVA), and Value Builder Advisor. During his 30+ years working in the IT Services and technology industry, he’s provided business strategy, consulting and M&A services (60+ successful transactions) to over 250 companies across 19 different countries. Though Reed began his career in software development, he quickly moved into recruiting, sales, operations and executive leadership roles. Not only does he have a deep understanding of the technology industry, but he’s also intimately familiar with every level of an organization. With his wealth of knowledge and expert advisory skills, he’s a recognized author and speaker in his field.
Reed’s known for his keen ability to negotiate and find a way for all parties to move forward no matter how challenging the circumstances. This stems from his great capacity for collaboration and ideation. Far and wide, he’s described as creative, agile and seasoned, which all come in handy during the valuation and next steps process.
In his spare time, you’ll find him boating with his wife and three adult sons or camping and hiking. His family also includes a large Maine Coon cat. Though he loves his work, he’s always wanted to be a bush pilot. There’s just something about flying…
Deanna is our Director of Operations. With a unique educational background in Theology, she knows just how to educate and guide our clients down the right path to fulfill their goals. At first, she intended to go into teaching, but after having four children and an assortment of different careers, she worked her way up into Operations Management.

However, travelling isn’t a new experience for her – she once toured all over the US and Canada in a singing/drama team.
