This article profiles Michael Dalton, a professor of accounting and taxation at Loyola University and the author of more than 30 books. Dalton still finds the time for a financial planning practice. In fact, he has discovered what he refers to as a quiet area of the business that combines his unique skills and expertise--valuation work. Dalton began his career as a certified public accountant before coming to Loyola University as the chairman of the accounting department. In addition to his doctorate of philosophy in accounting and a certified financial planner earned in 1985, he completed all the course requirements for a doctorate in management. Since 1981, Dalton has done valuation work of closely held corporations for divorce cases, stock bonus plans, employee stock ownership plans, sales, mergers and acquisitions. What Dalton likes most about his work is the high level of interest. The valuation work accounts for less than 20% of the work of Dalton. The bulk of his time is spent teaching what he practices. He teaches graduate courses in estate planning, valuation of closely held corporations and policy and strategy at Loyola University. And, like any good teacher, he would encourage others to pursue his field of choice. Dalton said it is very interesting work and there is a lot of it. He gets a call a day and could do ten times the work he is doing if he was not writing and teaching.
