CHICAGO – Acacia Financial Group Inc. fired Courtney Shea – the former public finance banker hired to open the firm’s Chicago office in 2009 -- and added former banker and investment asset manager professional Jim Beck to its Chicago team.

The co-presidents of the Marlton, N.J.-based firm – Kim Whelan and Noreen White – declined to explain the changes, saying in an email that the firm “cannot comment on personnel matters.” The firm has in the past issued press releases announcing some new hires, including Shea’s in late 2009.
