CEP’s Core Values

Help your company maximize plan benefits while minimizing plan costs.

When our Chairman Emeritus, Lou Russo, founded CEP Consultants Inc., he established a set of core values that have guided CEP to its position as the premiere specialist, benefits plan consulting and plan administration group in New York. The Core Values of the CEP Consultants Inc. are not mere words in a corporate presentation. Together, they constitute the CEP philosophy that we are trained in, immersed in, and live by. Our Core Values help your company maximize plan benefits while minimizing plan costs.

Core Values:

  • Fiduciary Standards It is our duty to put our client’s interests ahead of our own – always.
