September 14, 2016

Arpin Group has appointed its chief legal officer, Marco P. Uriati, to the position of chief operating officer. He will retain both titles.

Uriati has served as chief legal officer since 2014, as general counsel since 2007, and previously as outside legal counsel beginning in 1999. In addition to his role as COO, Uriati is the current chairman of the Arpin Group management committee.

“Marco’s diverse professional background and long history with Arpin Group make him uniquely suited to assume his new position as COO,” said David Arpin, president and CEO of Arpin Group. “Marco is an accomplished, results-driven person. He possesses a wealth of industry knowledge and experience in the areas of operations, strategic planning, risk management and, of course, the law. We are especially pleased to have such a sharp and devoted individual as Marco on our executive team.”

Uriati is the immediate past chairman, and current member, of the Legal Advisory Council of the American Moving and Storage Association. He is licensed to practice law in the State of Rhode Island, the United States District Court for the District of Rhode Island, the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit, and the Supreme Court of the United States of America.

Before joining Arpin in February 2007, Uriati enjoyed a successful private practice as a shareholder of the venerable Rhode Island firm of Roberts, Carroll, Feldstein & Peirce. During that time, he practiced in both the corporate and litigation arenas. His areas of practice included transportation law, business law, complex civil litigation, commercial real estate law, public affairs and insurance law.
