It is with profound sadness that we at Blue Valley Capital announce the passing of our esteemed founder, Loren Smith. A true visionary in the wire harnessing industry, Loren’s passion and dedication were unparalleled. His journey began with his own wire harness company, which he successfully sold in 2000. This milestone marked the inception of Blue Valley Capital LLC, a specialized sell-side advisory firm dedicated to helping owners of wire harness companies navigate their exit strategies.
Loren’s deep understanding of the industry and his personal experience as an owner made him a uniquely empathetic advisor. He was more than just a guide; he was a mentor who cared deeply about the personal and professional well-being of every client. His legacy is not only in the business he built but also in the countless lives he touched through his work.
Beyond his professional achievements, Loren was a family man at heart. His stories about his beloved wife Gloria, their children, and grandchildren brought joy and inspiration to us all. His infectious smile and the tales he shared will be dearly missed.
As we remember Loren, let’s embrace his enduring mission statement: “Make money, take care of others, and have fun doing it.” His spirit will forever be a guiding light in our hearts and in the work we continue at Blue Valley Capital.
