Eric Colson, Chairman and CEO, said, ‘‘It is with great sadness that we announce today the passing of my friend and colleague, Dean Patenaude. As Head of Global Distribution, Dean’s accomplishments were many, and include leading our efforts to grow our primarily US client-base into the global firm we are today.
