Prairie Celebrates Its 25th Anniversary

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.

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.”
