Beacon Consulting Group makes strategic hire for ETF and office expansion


Beacon Consulting Group (Beacon) has added Steve Messinger to the firm’s management team as it continues its West Coast growth and expansion in the ETF and investment management industry. 

Messinger joins Beacon as a Managing Director and his responsibilities will include leading client engagements, business development, and driving strategic initiatives. The addition of Messinger to the management team builds on the significant growth of Beacon’s ETF capabilities and West Coast presence which launched in 2013.

“We are delighted to add Steve to the Beacon management team. Beacon’s growth can be attributed to the strength of our team and the trusted advisor status we have earned with our growing client base,” says Keith Brown, President of Beacon. “Steve’s significant ETF and industry experience makes him a valuable addition to the Beacon team and his broad industry expertise enhances our capabilities across the board. His deep understanding of ETF product strategy and operations will be of immense value to our clients and complements the work of our entire firm.”

Messinger joins Beacon after seven years with the iShares ETF business at BlackRock where he was a Managing Director and head of Planning and Strategy. In this role, Messinger managed the US ETF operating platform and oversaw its global service providers. Messinger brings over 17 years of experience in operational, strategy, and project management roles in the investment management industry. Additional roles have included the head of strategy and eCommerce at Van Kampen Investments and led the West Coast Asset Management Advisory Services practice at Ernst & Young.
Beacon works closely with investment managers, third party administrators, hedge funds, pension funds, and technology vendors to define their strategic visions, enhance their competitive positions, and implement changes that transform their business performance.Expansion.html#sthash.YHNn3Gly.dpuf
