Dimont & Associates, a national claims management company, has announced that it has engaged the services of Joe McCloskey, a well-respected industry veteran, for strategic business initiatives. Through this agreement, McCloskey, former head of the Office of Asset Management at the Federal Housing Administration (FHA), will be applying his extensive industry expertise to assist with Dimont's overall strategic growth initiatives. "Joe McCloskey offers a proven track record and extensive experience evaluating operations in conjunction with multiple servicing requirements, and will be a valuable partner in helping Dimont further expand our services, especially regarding FHA portfolios," said Bernie Dimont, chief executive officer of Dimont & Associates.
