PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Berkshire Money Management, a locally based investment advisory firm, announces that Pittsfield native Peter Coughlin has been hired as the company's executive director.

Coughlin joined the BMM team in December. He will be focusing on new business development, portfolio management, and client education and communication.

Coughlin brings 30 years of experience, including more than two decades at USB Wealth Management and several years at Wells Fargo Advisors. He works with a wide variety of clients, including corporate executives, retirees, and families. His goal with each client is simple.

"I help those that need guidance and advice," he said. "Those that need a plan and to be put on the right path."



Berkshire Money Management President Allen Harris described Coughlin as a valuable asset to the team of seasoned advisors.

"The greatest assets a business can have are smart stakeholders who highly rate the service and value delivered to its clients," Harris said. "As Berkshire Money Management continues to help new clients manage their retirement experience, Peter will be a valuable resource in allowing clients to feel comfortable in getting to, and through, retirement."

In addition to his decades of investment experience, Coughlin and his family have deep roots locally. He lives in Pittsfield with his wife Sheila, a dental hygienist with Dr. Paul Gamache. Together they have raised four children — two daughters and twin sons -- and are proud grandparents.

Berkshires Beat: BNRC Upgrades Popular Trails for 2019 Summer Season

Trail facelifts

On Monday, June 10, state Rep. Smitty Pignatelli joined members of the Berkshire Natural Resources Council (BNRC) board of directors, volunteers, staff and nature trail enthusiasts to unveil a redesigned trailhead kiosk and enhanced on-trail signage at BNRC's flagship conservation reserve, Yokun Ridge South at Olivia's Overlook. Similar upgrades have also been completed at 16 other BNRC trail sites across Berkshire County. All 54 BNRC reserves are open to the public year-round from dawn to dusk, free of charge.

Each updated kiosk features a large map of the reserve and its trail system; notes on the natural, cultural, and ownership history of the protected lands; and suggested activities for each property.  Also available at the kiosks are free, newly revised paper trail maps for visitor use. Easier-to-read on-trail signage, mostly in the form of large brown signs with white letters, has also been installed on many trails. Among these are trails at The Boulders, a BNRC property used by many, which spans across parts of Dalton, Lanesborough and the City of Pittsfield in the center of Berkshire County.

"These kiosk and signage improvements, coupled with BNRC's new Berkshire Trails app, will help everyone explore the richness of the Berkshires' hiking trails and outdoor opportunities," said BNRC President Jenny Hansell. At Monday's unveiling ceremony, Pignatelli spoke to the crowd of the economic importance of conservation land and outdoor recreation opportunities in the Berkshires.

Established in 1967, the Berkshire Natural Resources Council’s mission is to protect and preserve the natural beauty and ecological integrity of the Berkshires for public benefit and enjoyment. There are 54 BNRC conservation reserves spread across Berkshire County, free to the public, open to everyone for non-motorized recreation, featuring over 55 miles of maintained trails.
