Allonhill adds Kathy Ireland as director of securitizations
Allonhill, an independent third-party review firm specializing in mortgage due diligence and credit risk management, has announced the hiring of former Fidelity Southern Corporation executive Kathy Ireland as director of securitizations. "We are very pleased to add yet another industry veteran to our leadership team, to help guide Allonhill's continued growth and fulfill our mission to reinvent the mortgage industry," said Sue Allon, chief executive officer and founder of Allonhill. "Kathy's expertise in the challenges of securitized pools, working with rating agencies, and supervising loan reviews, all with a heightened focus on integrity and independence, will play an instrumental role in the continued success and growth of Allonhill." Ireland, a 30-year veteran in banking and financial services, will manage the firm's core securitization solutions. Ireland most recently served as the vice president of special projects for Fidelity Southern Corporation, a holding company for Fidelity Bank. In January, Allonhill unveiled a complete securitization solution for issuers and underwriters of residential mortgage-backed securities (RMBS). The new approach to securitizations offers issuers a turn-key solution by meeting the requirements of all four major credit rating agencies for third party review firms.
