In his new role as SVP at Collingwood, Negri's duties will include managing critical customer relationships as they cope with franchise-risking regulatory and compliance demands in the new challenging regulatory environment.
"We are big believers that the company you keep has a big impact on your choices and business results. Adding someone of Chris’ caliber is what our clients have come to expect. Investments like this are critical to the mutual success of clients, policy makers, and our firm," Collingwood Chairman Tim Rood said.
