In his role as General Counsel, Vander Kolk will report directly to CEO Dave Merrill, enhancing the company’s legal policies and procedures at both the domestic and international levels, and adopting a proactive stance to maximize asset protection and minimize inherent risk for CoventBridge and its clients, allowing the company to continue to move forward with its strategic goals.

“We expect Kevin to make important contributions to the CoventBridge community,” says Merrill. “His finger is squarely on the pulse of our industry’s rapidly-changing legal landscape. The addition of Kevin represents yet another investment and contribution to our clients’ security and financial value proposition.”

A practicing attorney for 25 years, Vander Kolk comes to CoventBridge from the civil litigation firm of AndersonGlenn, where he was managing partner. “I welcome the opportunity to join CoventBridge in its mission to redefine industry standards on a global scale,” says Vander Kolk, “but the big picture is meaningless if we fail to cultivate our customers’ individual success. I believe that our team is wholly dedicated and expertly qualified to lead CoventBridge and each of its clients, in the US and abroad, confidently into that future of success.”
