Kelly Noll |


Director, Valuation Advisory
GBQ Capital Advisors

Adding it all up.

You could say a career in finance was in the cards for Kelly… or, more accurately, in the car. Family road trips meant hours of math games, instead of that license plate game the rest of us were playing. Her mom, dad, brother and husband are all in the business as well, so she’s in good company.

From being named her high school valedictorian to managing a portion of her college’s endowment fund, to her work with the valuation group at GBQ, Kelly’s accomplishments are many; now nearly two decades into her career, she’s as passionate about her work as ever.
