Broadridge Financial Solutions subsidiary Access Data has hired Bernard "Bernie" Brockgreiten to lead client development for the firm's compliance and risk management product line. In this role, Brockgreiten will be responsible for developing key compliance relationships with asset management and broker/dealer firms and will play a pivotal role in expanding Access Data's intermediary oversight capabilities.

"His compliance expertise, industry viewpoint and collaborative spirit are invaluable."
