Craig West is the founder and chairman of Capitaliz, a leading digital platform for exit planners and advisors to deliver scalable business valuation, succession, and exit planning outcomes. As a strategic accountant who has more than 20 years of experience advising business owners, Craig believes that the majority of business owners and often their advisors are unprepared and unaware of the steps required to prepare for exit. 

Craig is a frequent commentator on issues related to exit planning, succession, and small businesses and has appeared in numerous publications and spoken at many conferences. He has also written four critically acclaimed books educating business owners on employee incentives, succession planning, asset protection, and exit strategies. In 2022, he earned his business doctorate.
