Chris Nicola, who is also president of the company, announced his and his wife’s departure from the firm on social media on Wednesday, thanking staff at CI Directing Investing. “While I do feel sad to be leaving the best job I’ve ever had, I’m staying positive and looking forward to the next adventure (perhaps after a brief rest),” Chris Nicola wrote.
