Collins steps up as Broadridge mutual fund proxy VP


Broadridge’s Michael Collins has been promoted to the role of vice president and general manager of mutual fund proxy voting and solicitation.

Collins takes over from Peggy Schooley, who has retired from the position. He will lead the mutual fund proxy voting business, with a focus on strategic planning, client relations and regulatory oversight.

Having joined Broadridge in 1996, Collins is credited with helping to build the mutual fund client service and account management functions.

Michael Liberatore, Broadridge president of mutual fund and retirement solutions, said: “As the mutual fund industry experiences increased regulatory and market driven changes, cost and compliance pressures mean funds need innovative strategies to efficiently reach shareholders, obtain quorum and pass proposals.”

He added: “Michael Collins’s wealth of expertise and superior track record will help our clients navigate these challenges and execute successful proxy voting campaigns.”
