Issued by: Alliance Benefit Group

Date: July 18, 2018

Peoria, IL, July 18, 2018 - Alliance Benefit Group, LLC (ABG), is growing again and this time in the Southeastern US. BlueStar Retirement Services, Inc., located in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL, is the newest retirement plan recordkeeping and consulting firm to become a licensee and join the ABG family.

BlueStar is an independent recordkeeper and third-party administrator. Focusing on providing better solutions and finding smarter answers is their core belief. "I've known Tim and Suzanne Werner for many years and I am very excited that BlueStar has decided to join ABG." said Don Mackanos, President of Alliance Benefit Group, LLC. "I know that BlueStar will contribute to the group in many ways. BlueStar is technologically advanced in their day-to-day operations. This has allowed them to grow in a relatively short period of time, providing services to over 100,000 participants."

"We've had a lot of friends in the ABG family for many years, and we enter this relationship with a great respect for the varied skillsets represented in this excellent group of firms that are all out there "doing it right". We're excited to dive in and be a great ABG team member." said Tim Werner, President of BlueStar.
