Pallas Partners Announces Economic Counsel

July 9, 2008

Pallas Partners Inc. is pleased to announce the formation of its Economic Advisory Council. The Economic Council is comprised of distinguished and highly accomplished leaders in economics and finance from the Louisville community.

The initial members of the Economic Council members are Dan Bauer, Ph.D. – Dean, W. Fielding Rubel School of Business, Bellarmine University, Paul Coomes, Ph.D.; Professor of Economics, University of Louisville College of Business and Public Administration, and Frederick Siegel, Ph.D. – Chairman Finance Department University of Louisville College of Business. The Council will provide important economic based research to clients and the general public. The Council will serve as a resource for macroeconomic analysis, opinions, seminars, publication, and white papers. Additionally the council may also provide whitepapers on specific industries or topics of specific regional interest.

Pallas Partners Managing Director and CEO, Matthew Saltzman, stated, “The establishment of our Economic Council further extends our position as a leading regional strategic consultant. The ability to affiliate with individuals who are arguably the most accomplished and qualified financial thought leaders in the community is a testament to the value proposition we represent.” Saltzman continued “The markets that we serve have a great desire and derive great benefit from research that is based upon economics and finance. Once again it will be our clients who will be the ultimate beneficiaries of our offerings through the Economic Council as we fill a real market void. Through the addition of the Economic Council Pallas Partners continues to progress toward establishing our strategic consulting practice as the absolute leader in the region.” Pallas plans to release its first research paper addressing the current economic crisis late this summer.
