Muggeridge to leave Fidelity, launch new firm

PROVIDENCE – John Muggeridge, vice president of Rhode Island public affairs at Fidelity Investments, is leaving the wealth-management company and starting his own consulting firm.

Muggeridge, one of the more public faces of Fidelity in Rhode Island, is leaving at the end of the month as part of a buyout, and will be replaced by Rick Metters.

Muggeridge, who boasts more than two decades of working with the Rhode Island community, has already launched a new consulting and lobbying firm: MuggVentures.

“After a long career at Fidelity and 20 years of engaging with the Rhode Island community, I am transitioning to new opportunities at MuggVentures,” he wrote on his new website. “I am looking for new initiatives that can leverage my corporate and community experiences to produce positive results.”
