CHICAGO, May 9, 2022 – Mesirow is pleased to announce that three members of its Retirement Advisory Services team have been ranked among the 2022 Top Retirement Plan Advisers by PLANADVISER.

“We are honored that three of our advisors are among those named as PLANADVISER’s 2022 Top Retirement Plan Advisers,” said David Dermenjian, President of Mesirow Retirement Advisory Services. “Vincent Allegra, Kevin Babb and Christopher Pohlman have earned this recognition by continuously partnering with plan sponsors and employees; allowing them to effectively manage their plan and achieve their goals.
