DBZ & The Cerrado Group
The landscape of our industry has evolved rapidly over just the past five years. Consolidation of firms in our industry continues to lead to new challenges. We remain committed to being independent and believe this partnership with like-minded firms will enhance our capabilities.
The saying is true that knowledge is power. In addition, when you think you have everything figured out, you are ripe to fail. DBZ believes that we can always be learning, not only internally from each other, but also externally outside of our organization. The opportunity to join The Cerrado Group will allow us to keep building on our foundation to share ideas for process improvement, marketing, presentations, cybersecurity, etc. and to learn potential new ways to grow and improve our business.
We believe joining The Cerrado Group will strengthen our position as an independent leader in our region as well as nationally.
“Dunbar, Bender & Zapf (DBZ) is very pleased at the opportunity to join The Cerrado Group. We look forward to the partnership with a dynamic organization of independent, thought leading TPA firms. We believe this group will significantly impact the continually changing retirement plan industry while enhancing our abilities to provide expert advice and service to our community of clients and partners.” -Nick Zapf, President
