A new generation of leadership has taken over at Overland Park, Kansas-based Valbridge Property Advisors, the nation’s largest independent commercial real estate valuation firm.

Valbridge President Laird Goldsborough announced the promotion of Daniel Kann and Jason Roos to managing directors. The pair will head up Valbridge’s (formerly Shaner Appraisals) Overland Park office under the continued tutelage of Goldsborough and Bernie Shaner, founder and industry pioneer.

Kann and Roos joined the firm in 2007. The Kansas City practice serves four states, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska and Iowa.

Shaner founded Shaner Appraisals 40 years ago. Goldsborough purchased the firm from Shaner in 2004. Under Goldsborough’s leadership, Shaner Appraisals joined 42 other appraisal companies throughout the country in 2013 to form a new company, Valbridge Property Advisors.

In March, Valbridge will celebrate its fifth anniversary. In this time, Valbridge has grown nationally from 58 to 70 offices and added 100 employees for a total of 700 staff.
