Gumbs will oversee the legal, compliance and physical security teams for Broadridge, will help lead Broadridge’s policy efforts and will serve as the primary legal advisor for senior management and the Board of Directors. Additionally, he will join the Broadridge Foundation Board, Risk Committee, and Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) committee.
