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.

Friends of the Pittsfield Senior Center Seek Volunteers

By Sabrina DammsiBerkshires Staff
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Friends of the Senior Center is in need of more volunteers so it can provide more opportunities at the Ralph J. Froio Senior Center.
 
"The Senior Center is a structure that is financed by the city of Pittsfield, but it's the friends that really support all the extra activities that take place in the Senior Center," said Friends' Treasurer Lea Morgan said.
 
The center was renamed and dedicated to Ralph J. Froio by the city in 1993 for in recognition of his civil leadership and the "countless hours in volunteer service to his community, especially in senior citizens’ affairs," the Council on Aging states on the city website
 
There are people today who allocate a lot of their time to brainstorm ideas, and provide opportunities for center visitors but a lot of people who visit the center have not joined as a member of the Friends, Morgan said.
