Chris Germano


“I enjoy working at a firm where my contributions to the team translate directly into success for our clients.”

It was either law school or Chris’s daughter that taught him, while you may never know exactly what to expect, thorough preparation can go a long way. As a member of the compliance and administrative teams at Highland, Chris applies this principle and strives to ensure our clients are in the best possible position with regard to their ERISA plans.

“Give me six hours to chop down a tree, and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.”  —Abraham Lincoln

Chris’s careful attention to detail and desire for best outcomes bleeds into other areas of his life. He can often be found doing copious amounts of research prior to making a final decision or eliciting advice. Those of us who know him best like to joke that Chris didn’t choose risk management, risk management chose him.
