Anne E. Robinson will join Vanguard next month as general counsel and managing director of its legal and compliance division, the $3.5 trillion investment management firm announced on Thursday.
Robinson most recently served as a managing director and general counsel in the Citigroup Global Legal Department.
“Anne Robinson is an ideal addition to Vanguard’s senior leadership team. Her expansive and varied legal experience in the financial services and consulting fields will be of great value to Vanguard and our clients,” said Vanguard CEO Bill McNabb in a statement.
Robinson has nearly 20 years of legal experience in the financial services industry. After spending the early part of her career in private law practice and with Deloitte Consulting L.P., Robinson joined American Express in 2003 and served in various legal positions of increasing responsibility. She joined Citi in 2014 as the general counsel for global cards. Robinson received a B.A. degree in political science with honors from Hampton University in 1991 and graduated from the Columbia Law School in 1994.
Robinson will assume leadership of Vanguard’s legal and compliance division from Managing Director Heidi Stam, who announced her intentions to retire in October 2015. Stam, who joined Vanguard in 1997, has served as managing director and general counsel of Vanguard Group since 2005.
