  • To establish and evolve ACP’s brand awareness to both consumers and advisors.
  • To grow the network of ACP membership.
  • To expand the capabilities of ACPConnect for effectiveness and user experience.
  • To support the annual conference to continue its best in class experience.


After graduating Boston College in 2006, Corrado began his career in finance with Anderson Tax, a high net worth tax consulting firm. In 2009, he left tax accounting to join his father, Frank J. Corrado, Jr., CPA, CFP, to start Blue Blaze Financial Advisors. The Blue Blaze mission is to help clients realize every opportunity to live a life rich with experience. To do this, they work in close collaboration with their clients to discover each person’s unique life goals and then develop an actionable plan to achieve them.


In his nomination statement, Corrado said, “The Alliance of Comprehensive Planners is ahead of its time. We do not require a law to put client interests ahead of our own - it’s just in our nature. We understand the unique value that comes with fulfilling life and financial goals via smart, sensible, comprehensive planning.


I seek to serve on the ACP Board of Directors to effectuate and spread the organization’s core vision: to be America's leading community of independent financial planners committed to success through our ethics and innovation.”


In her statement welcoming the two newest members of the Board, including Corrado, ACP Executive Director Joanne Davis said, “I am confident that ACP will benefit greatly from their insight, vision and leadership.”


ACP board members are appointed for a three-year term.
