Press release from: Prairie Capital Advisors

OAKBROOK TERRACE, IL – April 15, 2021 – Prairie Capital Advisors, Inc., a leading corporate advisory and investment banking firm, is excited to celebrate its 25th anniversary on April 15th.

Since its inception, Prairie has been committed to providing the highest level of financial advisory and investment banking services to middle-market companies across the United States. Although the firm has grown significantly by adding service lines, professional staff and offices over the years, the culture that co-founders Ken Serwinski and Bob Gross established still thrives today. “We are fortunate to have found a team of professionals who believe in our vision and in the core values of integrity, respect, teamwork and passion that have made us successful over the last 25 years,” commented Ken. “These values are at the center of everything we do—from how we serve our clients to how we interact with each other—and help to guide us as an organization.”

Prairie’s thought leadership and capabilities have established the firm as a premier provider of M&A, ESOP and valuation advisory services. Dave Diehl, CEO, and Rocky Fiore, COO, remember the past and look forward to the future. Dave commented, “We are incredibly proud of our history and what we have been able to accomplish. The success we have enjoyed would not be possible without the dedication and hard work of our employees and the trust of our clients and professional partners. Thank you all for being part of the Prairie family.” Rocky added, “It is a pleasure to be surrounded by a diverse and talented group of professionals that truly love what they do and want to make a difference. What we have created is very special, and while we want to preserve our history, we recognize the incredible opportunity in front of us. The challenge to keep getting better and to deliver for our clients is what drives us every day.”

Prairie and many of its professionals have received awards from various organizations over the years. Dave concluded, “We are honored that Prairie and our talented team of professionals have consistently been recognized amongst our peers for our outstanding achievements across our service lines. Having reached this 25th anniversary milestone, it is important to pause and reflect upon our success. We are committed to building upon these achievements and are more excited than ever about our future.”
