Our History

In September 1971, Bob Vrakas founded the accounting and advisory firm Vrakas, Blum & Co., S.C. after having identified that the larger accounting firms were under-serving middle market, privately-held businesses in the Milwaukee and Waukesha areas. Today, the firm continues to practice serving this niche market as Vrakas S.C.

From their humble beginnings during the 1970’s, the business valuation team of Vrakas Business Valuations, LLC., is now comprised of 4 credentialed professionals who are able to assist clients with various valuation needs such as divorce proceedings, estate and succession planning, buy/sell agreements, litigation support, sale/purchase of a business, and ESOP transactions, just to name a few.
