The Collingwood Group announced its acquisition of Indelium LLC and the formation of Collingwood Communications. David Jeffers was appointed president/CEO of the new company, which primarily will focus on serving the public relations and public affairs needs of organizations in financial services, housing and the mortgage industry.
The Collingwood Group is a corporate advisory and business investment firm. It was co-founded in 2009 by former Ginnie Mae President Joe Murin and former Federal Housing Administration Commissioner Brian Montgomery.
"The acquisition of Indelium's leadership and experience allows The Collingwood Group to widen the scope of solutions that we provide our clients," said Montgomery, who will serve as the chairman of Collingwood Communications' board of directors. "An effective communications strategy is an important component of success when conducting business in the new world of financial services and public policy."
Jeffers founded Northern Virginia-based Indelium, a strategic communications company, in 2006. Among the clients served by Indelium in the past four years are the Council of Federal Home Loan Banks, Freddie Mac, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, the National Association of Home Builders, the National Housing Conference, Overture Corporation, Rebuilding Together, Xap Corporation, the Department of Homeland Security and the Foundation for The National Archives.
