Blue Prairie Group (“BPG”), a Chicago-based institutional retirement and investment consulting firm, is pleased to announce the addition of two industry veterans, Jere Cowden and Mark Muto, to its growing network of retirement consultants.
Mr. Cowden and Mr. Muto will lead the Pittsburgh office of Blue Prairie Group as part of Blue Prairie Group’s advisor affiliate program. “The partnership with Blue Prairie Group allows us to leverage the scale and efficiencies of a larger, nationally recognized firm, while delivering personalized local consulting services to our clients,” said Jere Cowden. “We are also very confident this partnership will help to propel our growth in the coming years.”
Mark Muto adds, “We are very excited about the opportunity to align with Blue Prairie. We advise on a variety of plan types and felt they could support us regardless of how complicated a client’s situation. BPG brings a great deal of depth and expertise to the table that truly separates them from the other firms we considered.”
