BA Consulting Group Press Release

PROVIDENCE, RI -- Citing an expansion of corporate focus, Borah Associates recently announced it has changed its name to BA Consulting Group. The new name reflects a broadening of the services offered by the employee benefits and compensation consulting firm.

Founded in 1965, Borah Associates' primary focus has been in the areas of qualified retirement plan administration and group benefits programs. BA Consulting Group's emphasis is now on consulting with businesses about a broad range of employee benefits and compensation programs, as well as consulting with other record keepers and benefit production providers.

“Our name change and more comprehensive services are dictated by the marketplace,” says Robert Borah, BA Consulting Group president and 30-year industry veteran. “We're finding that our engagements go beyond designing and administering qualified plans. We're now consulting with other product suppliers and institutional record keepers as technical resources, and providing them with computer-automated reference systems designed specifically for their staffs. We are also broadening our services to become involved in nonqualified retirement plans and total compensation and benefit programs.”

BA Consulting Group, which primarily serves the New England market, draws upon the extensive experience of a number of seasoned benefits and compensation professionals.

“We have an outstanding and unique staff in place now with specialized areas of expertise, including vice presidents Toby London, our retirement plan compliance expert; Heidi J. Töppel, our compensation planning and nonqualified plan specialist; and Robert Doss, our authority on programs for nonprofit employers,” says Borah. “We offer the vast knowledge and experience of a large, international consulting firm, yet our size allows us to retain the quality and service commitment of a local personal-service company.”

BA Consulting Group is a 30-year-old employee benefits and compensation consulting firm that designs, implements, administers and communicates all types of programs. The firm also offers consulting services in a number of other areas, including 401(k) record keeping, retirement plan administration and compliance activities, flexible benefit plans, incentive compensation programs, executive benefit plans and salary programs, as well as strategy, pricing and funding development for compensation and benefit programs.
