BIP Wealth, one of the Southeast’s premiere wealth management firms, announced the addition of Chase Murray to its Baseball Division as Business Development Officer. Murray, who played professionally in the Pittsburgh Pirates organization, joins former Pro Ball Players Kyle Schimdt, CFP®, a former pitcher in the Orioles organization; and John Hester, CFP®, a former MLB catcher and professional scout; in the Baseball Division founded by former Major League Baseball relief pitcher Jim Poole.
BIP Wealth’s Baseball Division has extensive experience in wealth management geared towards the unique challenges and needs of ball players and their families. As a former player himself, Murray knows firsthand what his clients may face on and off the field.
Murray was previously a Global Enterprise Business Development Representative with Salesforce. He’s actively involved with his alma mater’s Alumni Association—Georgia Tech.
“We have a unique opportunity here at BIP Wealth’s Baseball Division to make a real impact in our clients’ lives from draft day to life after baseball,” said Murray. “Going through that transition myself to life off the field, I really enjoy being in a position to assist our current players and their familes as they make sound financial decisions for the future. I love being a resource to our clients, helping them in any way I can.”
“Adding Chase to our team has made an immediate impact,” said Kyle Schmidt, Personal Wealth Advisor, CFP® from the BIP Wealth Baseball Division. “As a fellow Yellow Jacket who played professional baseball, Chase, like few others, has walked this unique career path our clients are walking. He understands the opportunities, challenges, and complexities that come from playing the game we all love so much. We’re so excited to grow our team with the addition of Chase.”
Murray is based in Atlanta, GA, out of BIP’s Alpharetta office. Outside of work, he enjoys spending time with his family and friends, including his girlfriend Jenny, and lively boxer puppy Lola. He also enjoys watching sports—especially football—and trying desperately to turn his baseball swing into a decent golf swing. The BIP Wealth Baseball Division serves draft-eligible, current, and retired professional baseball players and their families.
